The Naval Group revealed a long-term cooperation strategy which will support the acquisition of two Belhara-class FDI frigates by the Hellenic Navy.

The announcement was made by the company at the French embassy in Athens on 13 February.

Alain Guillou, Naval Group Executive VP Development said: ‘This cooperation plan will support the Hellenic Navy in achieving regional superiority at sea, but also the ability of the Hellenic industry to actively prepare the future of naval warfare.’

Eight Greek companies have signed letters of intent to join the Naval Group supply chain in the country.

The plan includes the creation of a Digital Support Centre, providing follow-on support and training to frigate crews and maintenance teams using Naval Group simulation technology.

France will also be operating five Belhara-class frigates, with first deliveries expected in 2023 and entry into active service from 2025.
