Canadian Forces Signs with Bell
Bell Helicopter has won a 10-year, C$640 million ($630.9 million) contract for support and service for the Canadian Forces’ fleet of CH146 Griffons. The CH146 optimized weapon system support (OWSS) contract will cover maintenance and management services, spare parts and engineering and technical publications. OWSS also has four one-year options available after the initial 10-year contract expires and will combine three existing contracts for engineering, overhaul, repairs and supplies. According to Bell, the Mirabel plant and Calgary supply center will provide the materials needed to fulfill the agreement.
