AOPS #3 Roll Out

 Another milestone was reached January 22 and 23 as Halifax Shipyard rolled out two of the three mega blocks for the third Arctic Offshore Patrol Ship. 

The internal fittings of the ship are in an advanced state before the roll out.

The be named HMCS Max Bernays AOPV 432 the ship will be fully assembled on dry land before it is floated out by semi-submersible barge.

Despite a significant snowfall on Friday January 22, the roll out seems to have gone off  well.

It will join AOPS#1, HMCS Harry DeWolf AOPV 430 currently in post acceptance trials with the RCN.  AOPS#2 to become HMCS Margaret Brooke AOPV 431, is still alongside the fit out berth at Halifax Shipyard (directly behind in the photo above -gangway visible to the left) but has had engine run ups in preparation for sea trials.
