JFD has announced a new partnership with Turkey’s Armelsan that will see Armelsan become JFD’s in-country partner in Turkey for defence opportunities.

Armelsan is a designer and supplier of sonar systems for the Turkish Navy. The company delivers a variety of sonar systems including diver detection sonar, hull mounted anti-submarine warfare sonar and mine hunting sonar, as well as ROV systems for military and civil applications.

Through this partnership, Armelsan will gain access to JFD’s submarine rescue expertise, which includes submarine rescue vehicles and submarine rescue chambers, as well as training for JFD’s defence diving products range. In turn, Armelsan will support the exposure of JFD’s products in the Turkish market and to Turkish companies seeking subsea solutions for international projects.

Giovanni Corbetta, managing director, JFD, said: ‘We are pleased to have signed this new partnership with Armelsan, which opens up the Turkish defence market to JFD, enabling us to share our innovation and subsea expertise with another important global region.

‘With complementing technologies, business values and a passion for delivering excellence, Armelsan is an ideal partner for JFD. By delivering subsea equipment to the Turkish market via our new partnership we can further deliver against our commitment to provide the best possible equipment and training to submariners and defence divers, maximising their chances of survival in the event of an incident.’
