Nauta selected for SIGINT vessel construction
Poland's Nauta Shiprepair Yard has been selected by Saab to build the ship platform for the special purpose signals intelligence (SIGINT) vessel on order for the Swedish Navy, Saab announced on 26 April.
Saab signed a contract with the Swedish Defense Material Administration for the design, construction and delivery the special purpose vessel earlier in April 2017. The order covers the period 2017–2020, with a total value of $83 million.
The ship platform will be built, launched and tested at the Nauta shipyard in Gdynia, a part of the Polish Armaments Group (PGZ). Once finished, the ship will sail to Saab's shipyard in Karlskrona, Sweden, for outfitting of SIGINT systems and final sea acceptance trials.
The Saab-PGZ contract is a result of a Memorandum of Understanding signed between the companies in October 2016.
