As a naval prime contractor, systems integrator and shipbuilder, DCNS combines resources and expertise spanning the naval defence value chain and entire system lifecycles. DCNS delivers innovative solutions from integrated warships to strategic systems, equipment, services and new energy solutions. The DCNS stand showcases:
• The FREMM multimission frigate combines the latest technologies developed by the DCNS group. FREMM frigates are among the most technologically advanced and competitively priced on the world market. France’s total order is 11 vessels and the delivery is scheduled from 2012 to 2022. In addition, one FREMM frigate for Marocco is pursuing sea trials in preparation for delivery later this year.
• The OPV Gowind® Adroit is designed to meet the operational needs of a large number of navies focusing on coastal missions/homeland security. During previous stopovers, many navies around the world have been favourably impressed by L’Adroit and recognised the operational benefits of the Gowind® range.
• The BRAVE support vessel is DCNS’s response to emerging logistic support needs identified by many navies. The ship is ideal for the underway replenishment of all types of products (dry cargo, fuel & other liquids and munitions), to provide logistic support for naval forces and to store and deliver all types of payloads, including dangerous substances.
