AMSC Secures First Allied Navy Supply Contract for Ship Protection; Daniel McGahn Quoted

Irving Shipbuilding has tapped power resiliency solutions provider American Superconductor to supply the ship protection systems hardware for Royal Canadian Navy vessels under a multiyear, multiunit supply contract worth about $75 million.

Daniel McGahn, AMSC president, chairman and CEO, underscored the task order’s significance as the Ayer, Massachusets-based company’s first delivery to an allied navy.

“This contract represents the success of the very deliberate actions we have taken to diversify our business, drive growth and expand scale both domestically and internationally,” he said.

According to AMSC, the contract includes engineering support to the military service branch. The deal also opens potential task orders in system integration and commissioning, with the first system delivery anticipated in 2026.

Halifax-based Irving Shipbuilding, which has built over 80 percent of Royal Canadian Navy vessels, is expected to integrate AMSC’s system into the Canadian Surface Combatant ships.

The shipbuilder and Lockheed Martin Canada lead a consortium tasked with building vessels under Ottawa’s CSC program, which has a budget of $345 million for 15 warships.
