DCNS pro­motes Gowind OPVS in South Africa

SP's MAI - - MILITARY -

The Gowind OPV L’Adroit vis­ited Cape Town from Septem­ber 5 to 9, 2012 dur­ing a long de­ploy­ment off Africa, pro­vid­ing an op­por­tu­nity for DCNS to pro­mote the Gowind range and demon­strate the op­er­a­tional value of the ves­sels and their cut­ting-edge tech­nolo­gies. DCNS will also ex­hibit at Africa Aero­space & De­fence (AAD) 2012 in South Africa from Septem­ber 19 to 23.

DCNS’s pres­ence in South Africa is part of an on­go­ing part­ner­ship with lo­cal ship­builder Nau­tic Africa (for­merly KND) cov­er­ing pro­mo­tion, con­struc­tion and sales of the Gowind® ocean pa­trol ves­sel (OPV). This type of ar­range­ment is key to DCNS’s abil­ity to com­pete in ex­port mar­kets, and an op­er­a­tional pres­ence in South Africa helps the Group un­der­stand the needs of the South African Navy and meet its lo­cal ship­build­ing re­quire­ments.
