Naval Group signs ISS agreement with Egypt

10th December 2018 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Naval Group has signed an agreement with the Egyptian Navy for the in-service support (ISS) of vessels delivered by the group over the next five years.

This agreement lays ground to a contract framing the maintenance activity related to Naval Group’s vessels delivered to Egypt. The activity will be managed through a new Naval Group subsidiary based in Alexandria.

In July 2014, Egypt's Ministry of Defense signed a contract for the construction of four Gowind corvettes. The

first-of-class was built in Lorient and delivered to Egypt in September 2017. The second of the series, launched in September, is being built under technology transfer at Alexandria Shipyard.

Naval Group also delivered the FREMM multi mission frigate Tahya Misr in August 2015 and two Mistral-class landing helicopter dock vessels in June 2016.
