Honourable Kerry-Lynne D. Findlay, Q.C., Associate Minister of National Defence and Member of Parliament for Delta – Richmond East, Visits Weatherhaven

BURNABY, B.C. – Today, the Honourable Kerry-Lynne D. Findlay, Q.C., Associate Minister of National Defence and Member of Parliament for Delta – Richmond East visited Weatherhaven to announce the awarding of a significant subcontract that will create jobs in British Columbia and play an important role in supporting Canada’s Medium-to-Heavy Lift Helicopter Project. Weatherhaven, of Burnaby, British Columbia, has been awarded a subcontract by Boeing for approximately C$5.7 million in support of the Medium-to-Heavy Lift Helicopter Project which will help to create high-quality, skilled jobs in the Metro Vancouver area. “Today’s announcement demonstrates our Government’s ongoing commitment to ensure our brave men and women in uniform have the equipment they need to conduct their missions safely and effectively for decades to come,” said Minister Findlay. “At the same time, our Government is proud to say that our investments in military equipment are contributing to the creation of highly-skilled jobs across Canada – including right here in Metro Vancouver.” Weatherhaven will fit made-in-Canada portable repair and maintenance shelters for the CH-147 helicopters, which the Royal Canadian Air Force will take delivery of in the near future. These portable shelters can be trucked and/or airlifted to locations to meet the Canadian Armed Forces’ various needs in the field, both domestically and internationally. This subcontract is a result of the Government of Canada’s $1.2 billion contract award to Boeing in 2009 for the purchase of 15 medium-to-heavy lift Chinook F-model helicopters (also known as CH-147F) to fulfill the Canadian Armed Forces’ transport requirements. The new Chinooks will be used in a wide variety of roles, from transporting equipment, troops and supplies within...

The Special Equipment Shelter system will be used to provide support and test equipment for the repair and maintenance capability in support of deployed operations as part of the Canadian Medium-to-Heavy Lift Helicopter (MHLH) Program.The CH-147F Medium-to-Heavy Lift Helicopter (MHLH) is a multi-mission helicopter that will help meet Canada’s obligations domestically and abroad. The CH-147F fleet of helicopters will be operated out of Canadian Forces Base Petawawa, in Petawawa, Ontario. Weatherhaven’s portable repair and maintenance shelters will be trucked and/or airlifted to locations as needed to meet Canadian Forces land-based operations requirements. “We are delighted to be working with Boeing to provide this important service to the Canadian military,” said Ray Castelli, the CEO of Weatherhaven. “This is further proof that Canadian manufacturers have both the talent and design excellence to provide cutting-edge products for the aerospace and military markets.” The Canadian government awarded Boeing a contract for fifteen Medium-to-Heavy-Lift Helicopters in June 2009.

Weatherhaven Resources Ltd. With an economy built on extracting resources from remote terrain, it’s only natural that B.C. has developed expertise in supplying portable field camps to resource industries. But one company has continually innovated on the basic prefab model, to the point where it is now supplying not only mining and forestry companies with bunk houses, but militaries around the world with popup field hospitals and satellite ground stations. Burnaby-based Weatherhaven got its start in 1981 supplying remote mining operations with prefab offices and bunk houses. The initial units, like tents in the shape of Quonset huts, were reusable, easily transported and quick to set up and take down. The first milestone innovation came about 20 years ago, when the Canadian military asked for a self-contained unit complete with plumbing, electrical systems, furniture and specialty equipment. Weatherhaven’s response was its patented Mobile Expandable Container Configuration, or MECC: a standard shipping container whose walls come down to triple the floor space; soft fabric walls pop out and inside are all the fixtures and equipment. Outside are standard connections for water and electricity. “It’s plug and play,” says CEO Ray Castelli, adding that units are fully operational within a half-hour of delivery. Weatherhaven initially sold about 200 of these units to the Canadian military, and went on to sell 2,500 to armed forces around the world. The company has configured the units as surgical operating theatres, satellite ground stations, vehicle repair centres and offices. The U.S. military liked the idea, but wanted hard walls. Weatherhaven’s response was the HERcon, or hard-wall expandable redeployable container. The company secured a U.S. patent...
