The Italian FREMM frigate “Federico Martinengo” was delivered on 24th April 2018 by OCCAR to the Italian Navy. The ceremony, held at the Muggiano shipyard (La Spezia), was chaired by the Italian Naval Armament Director, the OCCAR-EA Director and the Q&A Committee Chairman, together with the Orizzonte Sistemi Navali CEO and senior representatives from Fincantieri.
The Italian FREMM Carabiniere has just concluded a six month deployment at sea off the Horn of Africa and in the Western Indian Ocean. The ship was employed on Operation ATALANTA (current counter-piracy military operation; the first undertaken by the European Union Naval Force), where she acted as flagship for five months.
On 19 December 2013, six months after the final acceptance of the Italian FREMM frigate Carlo Bergamini, first of class (FOC) in the General Purpose (GP) version, OCCAR delivered to the Italian Navy the ITS (Italian Ship) Virginio Fasan, the first frigate in the anti submarine warfare version, known as FOC ASW.
