NAVANTIA signs a contract for providing support to the Norwegian frigates during five years
NAVANTIA has signed with the Norwegian Ministry of Defense a five-year contract for providing support for the maintenance of the five frigates of the Fridjoft Nansen class (F310), which were built by NAVANTIA between 2000 and 2011, and which are currently being operated by the Norwegian Navy.
This contract comes after the contract which both parties concluded in June 2013, and which now is extended, thus showing the trust which the Norwegian Government has on NAVANTIA, as well as the Company’s commitment with the maintenance of these ships.
The new contract, besides spanning the technical assistance, maintenance, repair, engineering studies, implementation of improvements, training and supply of spare parts and components services, which the previous contract already featured, includes a service of continuous support to the maintenance of the Integrated Platform Management System of these vessels, as well as a system for controlling the obsolescence of spare parts and components (detection and solution regarding the loss of validity of those items) and for the ships’ maintenance and configuration.
It is worthwhile recalling that NAVANTIA opened up last June a commercial office in Bergen, beside the naval base in which the ships are deployed, in a show of commitment on the part of the Company for strengthening its presence in the country and for expanding the commercial relationship with this customer, which plays a strategic role for NAVANTIA.
NAVANTIA constitutes a world reference in the design, construction and integration of warships with a high-technological content, as well as ship repairs and upgrades. Besides, its activity lines include the design and manufacturing of combat and command and control systems, integrated platform management systems, firing control systems, propulsion engines and the Life Cycle Support for all its products. Although its main activity is in the naval field, NAVANTIA also designs and manufactures systems for the Army and the Air Force.
NAVANTIA belongs to Grupo SEPI, a corporate holding which includes a total of 15 state-owned companies in which it has direct, majority shareholding participations, with a workforce of more than 73,000 professionals in 2015; the Spanish state-owned television and radio corporation, Corporación Radiotelevisión Española, which is attached to SEPI, and one public foundation. Equally, SEPI has direct minority shareholdings in a further nine companies, and indirect shareholdings in more than one hundred companies.
