Resolve Class AOR

Project Resolve involves the conversion of a modern, European-built containership into an Auxiliary Oiler Replenishment ship. The concept of converting a containership into a naval fleet auxiliary ship is not a new one – it has been performed on several occasions over the past decades including by the Royal Navy and the United States Navy. Those ships have gone on to serve in global combat operations worldwide. m/v Asterix will be fully compliant with all international regulations.

Designed by NavTech, a leading Canadian Naval Architecture firm and Rolls Royce Marine, the ship will be converted at Federal Fleet Services’ sister-company, Chantier Davie Canada in Quebec. A pan-Canadian supplier network spanning six provinces has been selected to provide equipment and services for the program.

The ship will then be made available to the Royal Canadian Navy with full services provision for the following 10 years. The government of Canada possesses an option to buy the ship at the end of the 10 years.
