Fincantieri will build the forward sections of the French LSS vessels for the French Navy based on the Italian "Vulcano" design.
The Italian group has been awarded an order from Chantiers de l' Atlantique (CdA) for the construction of the four French vessels' forward sections.
On 2nd September 2019, OCCAR EA Director Mr Arturo Alfonso Meiriño visited Saint-Nazaire OCCAR LSS PD premises, located in the “Chantiers de l’Atlantique” shipyard facilities. He was accompanied by Eng. Gen. Laurent Sellier, Director of the Naval Management Unit of the French “Direction Générale de l’Armement”.
An SLA was signed between OCCAR and the NSPA already in 2014 to benefit from NSPA’s logistic support capabilities in accordance with the Aerospace and Defense Specification 2000M (ASD S2000M).
The fourth amendment recently signed NSPA provides an extension of the services for another 3 years (2019-2021).
