Naviris JV up and running
Naviris, the new 50/50 JV between Fincantieri and Naval Group, is now fully operational.
Through Naviris, the companies are aiming to consolidate European naval defence, and pool their strengths to develop a new strategic capability and respond in an innovative way to the needs of their customers.
From a head office located in Genoa and a subsidiary in Ollioules, the Naviris team will focus on binational and export projects, and will target common R&D projects, worldwide proposals, prime contractorship and deign authority opportunities and procurement opportunities.
Naviris foresees export and common French-Italian opportunities, such as the first studies for the mid-life upgrade of the French and Italian Horizon-class destroyers, as well as European projects such as the development of the European Patrol Corvette light frigates.
