Da­men cuts steel for first in­done­sian frigate


In June 2012, the Min­istry of De­fence of In­done­sia and Da­men Schelde Naval Ship­build­ing (DSNS) signed the con­tract for the first SIGMA 10514 PKR Frigate. In ac­cor­dance with the agreed plan­ning for the con­struc­tion of this frigate, the steel cut­ting cer­e­mony took place si­mul­ta­ne­ously on Jan­uary 15, 2014 at PT PAL (Persero) Ship­yard in Surabaya (In­done­sia) and DSNS in Vlissin­gen (the Nether­lands).

DSNS will build two mod­ules and sub­se­quently ship them to the yard in Surabaya. The si­mul­ta­ne­ous con­struc­tion and testing of the mod­ules at two dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions sig­ni­fies the unique mod­u­lar build­ing strategy of Da­men Schelde Naval Ship­build­ing, a method un­par­al­leled in the naval ship­build­ing in­dus­try.
