Davie Shipyard sale cleared by Québec court
Thursday, July 21, 2011
Davie has been in creditor protection since February 2010 and had been planning a bid for one of two contracts to be handed down as part of the Government of Canada's National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy (NSPS). This plan had historically been cast into doubt as a condition of the bidding process was that the yards involved be financially solvent.
The deadline to submit bids is 14:00 Eastern Time (19:00 UTC) on July 21. Vancouver-based Vancouver Shipyards, and -based Irving Shipbuilding are also bidding for the NSPS contracts.
