New Royal Canadian Navy support ship now in the water, sea trials planned


October 16, 2017

Davie Shipbuilding announced on Monday that Asterix, the new supply ship being leased to the Royal Canadian Navy, has now been launched.


Commissioning of all onboard systems on the Resolve-class naval support ship began in early September and on Nov. 16, the ship will perform its sea-trials prior to achieving full operational capability, the firm noted.

During the sea-trials – overseen by Lloyd’s Register – the ship’s safety, quality, systems and functionality will be tested against the military standards and specifications which it has been built to, Davie added.
