HALIFAX — The delivery date for the navy's first Arctic and offshore patrol ship has again been pushed back.

The original plan was to have Irving Shipbuilding in Halifax deliver the ship in 2018, but in August that date was pushed to the end of 2019.

However, Irving Shipbuilding released a statement Tuesday saying the new ship, HMCS Harry DeWolf, will be delivered during the first three months of 2020.

The company says it had always intended to "revisit" the delivery deadline, given the fact it is building a newly designed ship with a new supply chain, a new shipyard and a new and growing workforce.

Irving spokesman Sean Lewis says the ship will be the largest naval vessel built in Canada in more than 50 years.

Lewis says four of the Harry DeWolf-class of vessels are currently under construction, and the navy expects to accept delivery of a total of six ships.


Military facing likely delay in delivery of new search-and-rescue plane .
OTTAWA — The Canadian Armed Forces is refusing to accept the first of its new search-and-rescue planes from European manufacturer Airbus because of concerns with the aircraft's manuals. The new plane was supposed to be delivered to the military by Dec. 1. Exactly how long delivery could be delayed remains unclear as Airbus, the Royal Canadian Air Force and the Department of National Defence wrangle over the contents of the manuals, which contain thousands of pages.The manuals provide pilots, aircrew and technicians with necessary instructions for operating and maintaining the aircraft.The federal government announced three years ago that it would pay Airbus $2.
