LONDON, (BM) – Navantia will be displaying its latest shipbuilding innovations, and providing details of some of the most significant projects that the company is involved with, learned BulgarianMilitary.com, quoting Defence 360 Europe.
These include: The recently signed contract for the next generation Spanish frigate, F-110; the S-80 AIP submarine, and the two Royal Australian Navy vessels currently under construction in Spain.
Working with suppliers from across the UK, Navantia has submitted a proposal to the UK Ministry of Defence for the Fleet Solid Support (FSS) programme. As part of its offer, Navantia is looking to grow the UK supply chain for this, and other new build programmes.
Navantia and its partner, BMT, will unveil the design of their FSS on Tuesday 10 September. Navantia will also be holding a UK Supplier Event during the show to explore opportunities for future collaboration with British industry.
The future FSS ships are set to replae the Royal Fleet Auxiliary (RFA)’s Solid Support Ships, RFA Fort Austin and RFA Fort Rosalie. The FSS will be tasked with supplying dry stores (ammunition, explosives, food…) to Royal Navy ships at sea.
