Photos: Canadian Navy Vessels Visit St George’s

May 16, 2016

Two vessels from the Royal Canadian Navy are currently visiting the island and can be seen berthed at Penno’s Wharf in St. George’s.

The Royal Canadian Navy website says, “The Kingston-class Maritime Coastal Defence Vessels [MCDVs] are multi-role minor war vessels with a primary mission of coastal surveillance and patrol including general naval operations and exercises, search and rescue, law enforcement, resource protection and fisheries patrols.

“Launched between 1995 and 1998, these ships are very flexible. Several types of mission specific payloads can be added to allow for rapid role change from one mission type to another such as a mechanical minesweeping system, a route survey system, and a bottom object inspection vehicle.

“The 12 Kingston-class MCDVs are crewed primarily by Naval Reservists and are divided equally between both coasts.”

The Kingston-class ship’s homeports are Esquimalt, British Columbia, and Halifax, Nova Scotia.
