Simex Awarded $2M Contract for Submarine Parts
Simex was awarded a 2 million dollar contract to supply the Royal Canadian Navy with Pressure Hull Glands for their Victoria Class Submarines.
The Pressure Hull Glands will be manufactured by Scientific Management International and will be delivered in 2018. They are manufactured using thermoplastic moulding technology, where the moulding is pressure injected at high temperatures. As a result it fuses to the cable jacket and chemically bonds to the gland stem, making it leak proof.
The Royal Canadian Navy has 4 Victoria Class submarines.
