Reaching out to the "public"

Seaspan recently launched a "Were in it to win it" National Ship Procurement Strategy (NSPS) website. The company aims to get the word out on its advantages, over the other Canadian yards, competing for the federal shipbuilding contracts. The website is very sharp looking and well put together.

Seaspan and Irving both opposed the extension on the bid deadline, requested by the other two competitors, Seaway Marine and Davie. Obviously Seaspan is rearing to go, since the team has enough time to reach out to the public. I think this is a good omen of things to come from them, should they win a share of the program. Check out the website here. I particularly like the "Why the west is best" section.

I am not sure which came first, but Nova Scotia and Irving Shipbuilding also have their own web site, touting the benefits of awarding part of the NSPS program to the region. You can find their website here.
