Perhaps seaspan can bid to build them some support ships. Fuel the funds to have an expanded yard.

Picture is from Nov 2019, but really shows the tankage and piping arrangement.

Picture from the keel laying ceremony.

Interested Seaspan never announced a shut down due to covid, unlike Irving so as far as public information, HMCS protector is on schedule still.

Yes, I've heard they are casting around for info on AOR's in NATO to get some ideas on what is out there and what is possible.

They are still building.  Much more of their build is outside so they are able to keep their staff distant from each other, and they changed up shifts to accommodate this as well.

It's HMCS PROTECTEUR, not Protector.

An important nuance.
