The contract also includes a ten year maintenance package.

Eitan Zucker, managing director, Israel Shipyards, said: ‘We welcome this order from the Israeli MoD and Navy to supply our floating dock. This is the optimal solution for their needs, providing both operative mobility and the flexibility to be adapted to the changing needs of the corps. We shall also provide dock support and maintenance services over the next ten years.’
