Davie dans la Stratégie nationale de construction navale | Sorel-Tracy veut renouer avec son passé

La nostalgie de Marine Industrie remonte à la surface à Sorel-Tracy lorsqu’on évoque le chantier maritime Davie. Dans cette ville de la Montérégie, la construction de brise-glaces en territoire québécois représente l’occasion de renouer avec ce qui était jadis son épine dorsale économique : la construction navale.

    IDEAS -- L’appel à propositions du Banc d’essai Énergie Verte est maintenant ouvert!

    Un concours est actuellement ouvert pour IDeaS jusqu'au 7 septembre. IDeaS permet aux entreprises de développer des produits innovants afin de répondre aux défis de nos forces canadiennes. Les différents programmes permettent le développement et même la commercialisation d'innovations. Le texte en français suit. The Green Heat: Low Carbon Energy Generation for Heating Existing Buildings Test Drive call for proposals is open! Lowering our carbon footprint is a significant matter for governments world-wide. The Government of Canada is committed to reducing its absolute Scope 1 and Scope 2 Green House Gas (GHG) emissions by at least 90% below 2005 levels by 2050. Currently, 60 percent of the energy requirements in DND facilities is for space heating, of which 90 per cent is generated from the burning of fossil fuels. Given that DND has more than 10,000 buildings in its portfolio, the need to address the GHG emissions of these buildings is essential. The challenge is in finding ways to convert these buildings to low carbon heating without requiring a major building retrofit, which would be cost prohibitive. DND and CAF are looking to Test Drive creative energy generation solutions to pair up with existing heating systems to help lower our carbon footprint. Specifically, the Department of National Defence and the Canadian Armed Forces (DND/CAF) are seeking a large-scale, low carbon energy generation/transfer system for heating existing buildings by integrating with their current hydronic heat distribution systems. A test building has been selected in Kingston, Ontario, for a Design-Build team to design and install an innovative system, in order to assess the effectiveness and the costs of these integrated technologies, with the aim of reducing the energy demand and carbon footprint of DND/CAFs infrastructure portfolio. The potential funding for the Design-Build contract component of the project has been established in the range of $5,500,000. See the full Call for Proposals that was issued July 27, 2021, and explore how you can support environmental progress. The deadline for application is September 7, 2021.

Please reach out to the Test Drive & Sandbox Team: IDEaSSandboxes-EnvironnementsprotegesIDEeS@forces.gc.ca The IDEaS Team L'appel à propositions du Banc d'essai Énergie Verte : Production d'énergie à faibles émissions de carbone pour le chauffage de b'timents existants est ouvert! Réduire notre empreinte carbone est une question importante pour les gouvernements du monde entier. Le gouvernement du Canada s'est engagé à réduire ses émissions absolues de gaz à effet de serre (GES) de portée 1 et de portée 2 d'au moins 90 % par rapport aux niveaux de 2005 d'ici 2050. À l'heure actuelle, 60 % des besoins énergétiques des installations du MDN sont destinés au chauffage des locaux , dont 90 pour cent sont générés par la combustion de combustibles fossiles. Étant donné que le MDN compte plus de 10 000 b'timents dans son portefeuille, le besoin de s'attaquer aux émissions de GES de ces b'timents est essentiel. Le défi consiste à trouver des moyens de convertir ces b'timents au chauffage à faible émission de carbone sans nécessiter une rénovation majeure du b'timent, ce qui serait prohibitif. Le ministère de la Défense nationale et les Forces armées canadiennes (MDN/FAC) cherchent à tester des solutions créatives de production d'énergie à jumeler avec les systèmes de chauffage existants pour aider à réduire notre empreinte carbone. Plus précisément, le MDN et les FAC recherchent un système de production/transfert d'énergie à grande échelle et à faible émission de carbone pour chauffer les b'timents existants en s'intégrant à leurs systèmes de distribution de chauffage hydronique actuels. Un b'timent d'essai a été sélectionné à Kingston, en Ontario, afin qu'une équipe de conception-construction conçoive et installe un système novateur, afin d'évaluer l'efficacité et les coûts de ces technologies intégrées, dans le but de réduire la demande d'énergie et l'empreinte carbone du portefeuille d'infrastructures du MDN et des FAC. Le financement possible pour le volet conception-construction du projet a été établi à environ 5 500 000 $. Examinez la demande de propositions complète qui fut publiée le 27 juillet 2021, et explorez comment vous pourriez contribuer au progrès environnemental. La date d'échéance pour appliquer est le 7 septembre 2021. Ça vous intéresse d'en savoir plus sur ce banc d'essai?

  • Canada changing rules of competition for $19B fighter jet fleet to allow consideration of F-35: sources

    Canada changing rules of competition for $19B fighter jet fleet to allow consideration of F-35: sources

    David Pugliese, Ottawa Citizen The Canadian government is changing the terms of the $19-billion competition to replace its aging fleet of fighter jets to allow the U.S. to enter its F-35 stealth fighter. The changes will allow for a more flexible approach in determining the value of the benefits bidders offer to Canadian defence firms, industry sources say, and come after a series of discussions with the U.S. government and threats by the Pentagon to withdraw the jet from consideration. Under the current terms, bidders were required to offer industrial benefits to Canada as part of the competition. That system, which would have disadvantaged the F-35, will now be amended, sources say. But those companies that do guarantee work for Canadian firms will receive more consideration under the new rules. U.S. officials had warned that the agreement Canada signed to be a partner nation in Lockheed Martin's development of the F-35 prohibits those partner nations from imposing requirements for industrial benefits in fighter jet competitions. “We cannot participate in an offer of the F-35 weapon system where requirements do not align with the F-35 Partnership,” U.S. Navy Vice-Adm. Mathias Winter told Canadian officials in a letter sent in December. Under the agreement, companies from the partner nations are eligible to compete for work on the F-35s, and contracts are awarded on a best-value basis. Over the last 12 years, Canadian firms have earned more than $1.3 billion in contracts to build F-35 parts. In a statement issued last week, Lockheed Martin Canada said that hundreds of Canadian jobs had been created by work on the jet. The firm noted that it continued to provide feedback to the U.S. government, which is involved with Canada in government-to-government discussions on the fighter jet program. The competition to win the Canadian contract for a fleet of 88 new fighter jets was launched on Dec. 12, 2017 and at this point four fighter jets are expected to be considered. Those include the F-35, the Super Hornet, the Eurofighter Typhoon and the Gripen. The Canadian government expects to award the contract in 2022. A request for bids for the new jets was scheduled to be released in conjunction with the CANSEC defence trade show in Ottawa at the end of the month, with bids to be evaluated by 2021. However, the government now admits that schedule is risky. In its latest update on major equipment projects the Department of National Defence said “The approved schedule is considered very aggressive,” and that “The project team is managing a number of risks which have the potential to impact schedule.” The document doesn't outline the specific risks but DND officials have acknowledged that figuring out how to deal with industrial benefits linked to the project could cause delays. The delivery of the first of the jets is expected in the mid-2020s, with the full capability available in the early 2030s, according to the DND document. The plan to purchase used Australian F-18s in the interim, the first already delivered, is also outlined in the document. It noted the final delivery of those jets is set for the end of 2021. https://nationalpost.com/news/canada/canada-changing-rules-of-competition-for-19b-fighter-jet-fleet-to-allow-consideration-of-f-35-sources
