The Danish Defence Materiel and Procurement Agency (FMI) has today signed a contract for the design of new patrol ships for the Danish Navy.

The contract with the Danish Patrol Ships K/S consortium will see the country field new vessels based on Odense Maritime Technology’s (OMT) MPV80 design – as predicted by Shephard.

Danish Patrol Ships K/S will act as a turnkey supplier for the Danish MoD.

The design contract will form the basis for a planned decision on the acquisition and construction of new ships.

The final design for the highly modular for the highly modular MPV80-based ships is expected to be in place by mid-2025.

The new ships will ultimately replace Denmark’s Thetis-class ocean-going patrol vessels.
