Under the Oceans Protection Plan, the Government of Canada is making sure the Canadian Coast Guard has the equipment it needs to respond to incidents along our coastlines in a timely and efficient manner.

Following open and competitive processes, Public Services and Procurement Canada, on behalf of the Canadian Coast Guard, has awarded three contracts totalling $16.4 million to Canadian companies to provide modern and efficient equipment to respond to marine pollution incidents:

Aqua-Guard Spill Response Inc., of Vancouver, British Columbia, was awarded a contract of $2,575,720 for 37 compact, portable, oleophilic skimmers. They are used to recover spilled oil in both calm waters and the interior spaces of small vessels.


Quote from Aqua-Guard's CEO Cameron Janz:

"We are very excited to continue working with the Canadian Coast Guard and Public Services and Procurement Canada. The supply of these thirty-seven (37) compact oil skimming systems further increases Canada's capacity to respond to marine oil spills in both calm waters and the interior spaces of small vessels. The  RBS TRITON 20 oil skimming systems will be delivered to locations across Canada and provide compatibility with the fifty-seven (57) larger RBS TRITON 60 oil skimming systems we have supplied to Canada in the last 16 months."
