Genoa to provide 3D modelling and design technology services for new CCG ship

At an event in St. John’s on Tuesday, Genoa Design International and Seaspan Shipyards of British Columbia signed a contract related to the construction of Canada’s new Polar Icebreaker.

Genoa will provide 3D modelling and design technology services for the program, resulting in up to 100 employees working on the project for the next several years.

The federal government has a plan to renew Canada’s federal fleet of combat and non-combat vessels while providing significant economic benefits to Canadians. The plan was announced in 2010.

With a displacement of 27,876 tonnes, the Polar Icebreaker will be 158 metres long and 28 metres wide, and able to accommodate up to 100 personnel. It will be able to operate farther north, in more difficult ice conditions and for longer periods than any icebreaker in Canada to date.
