Type 212CD talks hit a snag

29th October 2020 - 14:45 GMT | by Michal Jarocki in Warsaw

Technological requirements seem to be a bone of contention between Germany and Norway, but both MoDs remain confident that the programme will proceed

Negotiations between Germany and Norway on procurement of six Type 212 Common Design (CD) submarines appear to have stalled, on the grounds that neither party can define common requirements.

However, both countries remain committed to seeing the programme through.

Reports indicate that the German and Norwegian MoDs cannot yet agree on the kind of specialised observation, navigation, communication, propulsion and weaponry to equip the six Type 212CD boats (four for Norway and two for Germany). ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems (TKMS), which was chosen in 2017 as the future manufacturer of the submarines, is also a party to the ongoing negotiations.
