Simex was awarded a $6 million contract to supply the Royal Canadian Navy with 16 centrifugal pumps for their Halifax Class ships.
The pumps are produced by Curtis-Wright EMD and will be used on the sea water circulating systems, the fire jockey, and fire pump systems.
The Royal Canadian Navy has 12 Halifax Class frigates, which are used extensively for both combat and humanitarian missions. All 12 ships are going through a refit and modernization program which has been underway since 2008.
