Trade Tribunal rejects rival bid to block warship contract


The Canadian International Trade Tribunal has been dismissed by the company for the development of the navy's next generation of warships.

Alion Science and Technology Corp. and its subsidiary, Alion Canada, filed the complaint in November.

The trade tribunal, in a decision rendered late Thursday, said before the agency.

Last fall, the Liberal Government announced plans to award a contract to the company.

Alion, Lockheed Martin Canada and the Spanish company Navantia were in charge of the Irving Shipbuilding project in Halifax.

The federal government issued a statement to the final contract.

"Public Services and Procurement Canada is pleased with the CITT's ruling," said Pierre-Alain Bujold, department spokesman. "We have full confidence in our process,"

Alion had pitched its De Zeven Provinciën Air Defense and Command (LCF) frigate, a Dutch-designed warship, for the Canadian competition and has pointed out in other countries.
