SP's MAI - - MILITARY -

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.
