October 9, 2018 (Google Translation) – Last week Navantia participated in the Canadian naval defense fair @DEFSEC Atlantic in Halifax, Nova Scotia. With a mainly industrial character, DEFSEC has been an excellent opportunity to give continuity to relations with local companies. Navantia had an intense agenda of meetings with a total of 40 local companies, most of them potential partners in the program.
Navantia opts for the CSC program for the construction of 15 frigates at the Irving Shipbuilding local shipyard. With a design based on the F-105, Navantia would be the designer of the ship along with its partners Saab Australia and CEA Technologies, integrator of the combat system and supplier of the anti-aircraft radar respectively. In addition to the design, Navantia would opt for the supply of the platform’s main equipment, such as propulsion engines, diesel generators, gearboxes and the Integrated Platform Control System.
The winner is expected to be decided before the end of this year.
