Naval Group and Fincantieri propose FREMM to Canada
The Government of Canada has declared its intention to acquire an existing and proven NATO warship design that could be readily modified to meet the Royal Canadian Navy requirements. French and Italian world-class shipbuilders Naval Group and Fincantieri, with the strong support of both French and Italian governments, will combine their expertise and present to the Government of Canada an “off-the-shelf”, sea-proven solution based on the FREMM frigate design for the supply of 15 surface combatant ships to the Royal Canadian Navy.
Atlas Elektronik Finland Oy has completed the Mid- Life Upgrade programme for three Pansio class inshore minelayers of the Finnish Defence Forces with delivery of the third and final upgraded ship, Pyhäranta, to the Finnish Defence Forces Logistics Command.

During the competition phase for the Pansio class mid-life upgrade, Atlas Elektronik Finland strengthened its capabilities and broadened its competencies for the prime contractor role. The essential work has been done at the shipyard, UudenkaupunginTyövene Oy, in a cooperative team consisting of Atlas Elektronik Finland, shipyard, system suppliers and sub-contractors, customer and end-user representatives..
