DCNS shortlisted as a potential strategic partner for Norway's future submarines

DCNS, one of the FNCC's support member has been announced yesterday as one of the two potential candidates for the replacement of the Norwegian Ministry of Defence's submarine fleet.

The Norwegian Ministry of Defence (MoD) is considering plans to purchase a fleet of next-generation submarines to replace six in-service Ula-class diesel electric boats of the Norwegian Navy.

DCNS has a long and successful experience in designing and building advanced submarines for the French Navy and international clients. The Scorpene has already been chosen by the Chilean, Royal Malaysian, Indian and Brazilian Navies.

The Group proposes to Norway the latest generation of its sea-proven conventional-propulsion Scorpene submarine. Its last evolutions represent the state-of-the-art in submarine design and construction and benefit from the latest technologies derived from attack submarines operated by the French Navy.

Its final configuration will be adapted to meet the specific needs of the Norwegian Navy and will feature advanced mature technologies in particular in the field of acoustic discretion, innovative energy production and storage and reduced manning operations.

Hervé Guillou, DCNS CEO, declared: “We are proud to have been shortlisted by the Norwegian government which evidences their trust in DCNS. DCNS and Norway have been working together for almost 30 years and we are willing to strengthen our strategic and industrial partnership. With a strong involvement of the French authorities, the French team is totally committed to working in close cooperation with Norwegian authorities and industry to meet the specific needs of the Norwegian Navy”.
