Germany says submarine code talks are part of design and safety plans

16th March 2020 - 15:00 GMT | by Richard Thomas in London


The German MoD has informed Shephard that its discussions with Norway on implementing aspects of the Naval Submarine Code have to date not resulted in any delays to the six-boat Type 212CD programme. 

The joint Type 212CD procurement effort originated in 2017 when the two countries signed an MoU to increase cooperation on a number of key programmes, including the integration of the Kongsberg Naval Strike Missile and the six-boat class of Type 212CD submarines, in a four-two split between Norway and Germany respectively.

Shipbuilder ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems (TKMS) was selected in 2017 as preferred bidder for the programme.
