Fincantieri outlines Australian commitment

24th February 2017 - 08:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Fincantieri has detailed how it will strengthen its in-country presence if it is successful in its bid for the Royal Australian Navy's (RAN's) Future Frigates SEA 5000 programme.

Fincantieri is one of three companies that have been shortlisted for the $35 billion SEA 5000 programme, to deliver nine future generation frigates to the RAN.

In its bid to strengthen its Australian presence, Fincantieri Australia was established in 2016, and the company has committed to technology transfer to the Australian government and RAN if its bid is successful. The vessels will be built in Adelaide.

The Fincantieri-built Carabiniere FREMM frigate, in service with the Italian Navy, is also currently in Sydney as part of a naval campaign and joint training activities with the RAN. As part of the vessel's tour through Fremantle, Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne, Fincantieri is holding meetings with local businesses to explore potential future partnerships.
