Navantia and US Navy sign service contract of four destroyers
Navantia has signed with the US Navy a service contract of four destroyers who will be deployed during 2014 and 2015 in the Naval Base of Rota as part of the BMDl, according to the agreement reached between both governments in 2011 and signed in 2012. The contract includes the maintenance of these units in the periods of immobilisation in Rota, and has a duration of one year more six optional years.
Navantia’s experience in the design, construction and maintenance of the ships, similar to the Spanish Navy in its systems, as well as its excellent infrastructure and workforce skill capacity, have been decisive for the adjudication of this contract.
Likewise, the attainment of this contract with the US Navy, with the highest level of requirements, supposes for Navantia a great international prestige, guaranteeing his leading world position in the naval military construction.
