Navantia and Turkish shipyard partnership for construction of Juan Carlos I
The Government of Turkey has announced that the partnership formed by Navantia and SEDEF, the Turkish shipyard, has been selected for the design and construction of one LHD and four LCM landing crafts for the Turkish Navy.
Navantia will provide the design, transfer of technology, equipments and technical assistance to SEDEF for local construction. Besides the design, based on the LHD Juan Carlos I for the Spanish Navy, Navantia will also provide several components and systems, as the engines, the turbine and the IPMS (integrated platform management system).
Navantia’s design has been selected due to the fact that it is a built and proven design in the case of LHD Juan Carlos I, and a very advanced construction in the case of LHD Canberra and LHD Adelaide for the Royal Australian Navy.
With this Navantia is entering the Turkish market, where it will present the F-100 frigates, as well as the consolidation of Navantia as a reference in the LHD market.
