Determination No. W-2017-174

October 31, 2017

APPLICATION by BBC Chartering, pursuant to the Coasting Trade Act, S.C., 1992, c. 31, for a licence.

Case number: 

BBC Chartering applied, through its representative, for a licence to use the "BBC AQUAMARINE", a multi-purpose heavy lift vessel registered in Antigua and Barbuda, to exchange a set of turbines and accessories, which comprises the installation of a new Turbine Control Center, within the limits of Saint John harbor, Saint John, New Brunswick. The activity will start on November 24, 2017 and will end on December 23, 2017.

Is there a suitable Canadian ship available to perform the activity?

Canadian Transportation Agency (Agency) staff gave notice of the application to the Canadian marine industry and no Canadian ships were offered. Therefore, the Agency determines that there is no suitable Canadian ship available to perform the activity.

The Agency is providing this Determination to the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness to consider whether to issue the licence. This Determination is not an authority to operate.
