The Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) METAREAS Arctic Program has a requirement for the supply and when as needed, refurbishment of drifter buoys. ECCC has an established network using non-moored buoys known as on-ice or drifter buoys deployed in Canada’s Arctic region with the goal of gathering meteorological data in regions where environmental conditions prevent the use of surface stations or moored buoys. These buoys provide live measurements of air temperature, barometric pressure, and sea surface temperature. By maintaining this network, Canada fulfills its commitment as a member of the International Maritime Organization’s requirement to have a consistent and significant monitoring presence in both METAREAs zone XVII and zone XVIII. Furthermore, these buoys are part of the Canada’s contribution to the Joint Commission on Marine Meteorology (JCOMM) Data Buoy Cooperation Panel’s (DBCP) goal of maintaining an array of 1250 surface drifting buoy operating in the world’s oceans. ECCC METAREAS Arctic Program has a requirement for a multi-year contract for a vendor to supply marine grade drifting and on-ice buoys that are capable of interfacing with MetOcean’s LiNC or equivalent back office monitoring platform, and other WMO data platforms such as JCOMMOPS. ECCC is seeking a supplier of the following products: 1. SVP/B/Iridium - Surface Velocity Program Langrangian Barometer Pressure Drifter Buoys c/w Tether and Holey Sock Drogue for deployment in an ocean environment. 2. Non Air Deployable Polar surface velocity drifters with barometers & lithium batteries for deployment in the Arctic 3. Polar surface velocity drifters with barometers with air deployment package for deployment in the Arctic. 4. Compact Air Launch Ice Beacon- Cylindrical buoy with air launch capability, used to track movement of ice edge, or large ice islands. 5. Asset tracking and monitoring solution that enables remote operation, tracking, and monitoring of the buoys in real-time using MetOcean’s LiNC or equivalent monitoring platform. Initial Delivery: Best possible Delivery Option purchases will be up to and including 31 March 2026 Quantities: Various Delivery Date: Above-mentioned The Crown retains the right to negotiate with suppliers on any procurement.
