The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI) is to request that interested companies provide responses to the questions posed herein. The questions posed are regarding the Canadian Coast Guard’s (CCG) requirement for non-powered Aluminum Recovered Oil Storage Barges of 20 and 40 cubic meter (m3) storage capacity.   

The non-powered aluminum barges will be used for temporary oil storage during various standard oil recovery operations, including but not limited to, side-sweeping, mechanical recovery and lightering. In order to adapt to various sea conditions, the barges may be towed with different methods, including stern towing, side towing and pushing. Depending on the operational requirements, the barges may be berthed alongside rigid structures, docks, other vessels and natural features.

Background Information:

The Environmental Response Equipment Modernization (ERE) Project for the Canadian Coast Guard (CCG) forms part of the Oceans Protection Plan announced in November 2016. Under the ERE, CCG is renewing its suite of environmental response (ER) equipment, ensuring a robust and strategic national response capability. The ERE is modernizing ER equipment with new technology for strategic ER locations across Canada. Approximately 50-100 unique procurements for different types of equipment, including Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) documentation, may be required. Several of these procurements have been completed or are in progress.
