    The (CCG), Aids to Navigation and Waterways establishes aids to navigation that assist vessels to navigate safely through our waterways. The program benefits pleasure craft, fishing and commercial vessels, and ensures the public's right to navigate. CCG Marine Aids to Navigation is mandated to keep waters accessible by providing aids to navigation, developing waterways, and protecting navigable waters.

    General Description of the Work:

    • • Place buoys on position in accordance with navigational season
    • • Maintain position and operation of both buoys and beacons
    • • Lift/remove/change buoys as required
    • • Repair and reposition buoys as required


    Within seven (7) days of Contract award, the Contractor must inspect the aids to navigation equipment listed in Attachment 1 and Attachment 2 and report any discrepancies/defects to the Project Authority. The cost of replacing/repairing buoys or beacons to normal operation at this time will be borne by the DFO CCG.

     At the beginning of each navigation season or as directed by the Project Authority, the Contractor must place the buoys on the position indicated in Attachment 1 and then following the herein described buoy positioning method of sighting the obstruction (see article 6) to be marked. The Contractor must also conduct an initial inspection, within seven(7) days of contract award, of the beacons listed in Attachment 1 to ensure they are functioning properly. The cost of restoring/repairing fixed aids to normal operation at this time will be borne by the DFO CCG.

    Work Specifications for Buoys

    A "maintained buoy" is a buoy for which the Contractor:

    • Checks the position and operation
    • Places/removes on/from station and repositions as required during the navigational season
    • Carries out maintenance

     The Contractor must inspect all buoys monthly or especially following periods of bad weather, ice conditions etc. If the Contractor has reason to believe the buoys/beacons may have been adversely affected, he/she must determine that they are in their correct positions and that the reflective tape and numbers are functioning properly.

    Following any on-water work on a buoy (commissioned, decommissioned, replaced, moved, inspected etc.) the Contractor must complete a Buoy Service Report (BSR) through SIPA mobile (AtoN database) for each buoy at each visit.

    Should any buoys be out of position, not functioning properly in need of repairs, the Contractor must immediately contact the Project Authority.

    The Contractor must, as part of this Contract, lift, tow, land, dock, and replace in proper positions such buoys that require repairs, renewal, or repositioning, during the navigation season as often as is necessary. If any buoy or its mooring is lost and not recoverable through no fault of the Contractor, he/she must immediately notify the Project Authority.

    If a buoy is out-of-position and cannot be repositioned within 24 hours due to sea or weather conditions, the Contractor must immediately notify the Project Authority. He/she must again notify the Project Authority when he/she has repositioned the buoy.

    The following types of work are fair and reasonable indications of the maintenance and repairs that must be carried out by the Contractor. This is not intended as a complete list of the Contractor’s duties but is intended merely to illustrate the types of repair and maintenance which the Contractor is expected to perform.

    1. Repair of worn or broken moorings

    2. Retightening or replacement of loose or missing fasteners

    3. Replacement of worn or torn reflective tape, letters and numbers

    4. Verify buoy colour is not obscured by dirt, debris or guano and clean buoy as required

    At the end of the navigation season or as directed by the Project Authority the Contractor must lift the buoys complete with their moorings and deliver them to a Contractor provided suitable storage area. The Contractor must immediately notify the Project Authority when the buoys are lifted at the end of the season.
