Humanitarian and Disaster Relief
With its large deck-space, multiple boat handling facilities and modular accommodation space, the MRNSV can be rapidly missionized to attend to major humanitarian crises and disasters. The vessel’s superior maneuverability allows it to reach and hold position, without assistance in all situations and environments. Further, the vessel has ample cargo storage space for humanitarian supplies.
Submarine Rescue and Diving Support
As a dynamically positioned vessel, the MRNSV will be the only vessel in the Canadian fleet able to perform submarine rescue according to NATO procedures. Without the MRNSV, Canada would need to call on its allies to rescue a distressed submarine and its submariners. The vessel is perfectly suited to perform normal diving support and subsea intervention operations.
Forward Ship Repair (Offshore Maintenance and Repair)
With an ageing fleet, the Royal Canadian Navy will benefit from a dynamically positioned vessel which is able to hold position alongside a damaged vessel or vessel needing repair and maintenance while at sea. The modular hold can accommodate workshops in support of the offshore repair and maintenance capability.
Training and Target Deployment
The MRNSV’s ability to hold position at sea, makes it ideal for the launching of target drones as well as boarding and close quarter combat training
Replenishment At Sea and Coastal Resupply
With its large payload capacity of 10,000t, the MRNSV can provide both coastal resupply to ports, bases and remote communities as well as perform Replenishment at Sea operations while stationary, using Dynamic Positioning.
