On the 15th November 2019, the OCCAR Director visited the ITS Spartaco SCHERGAT, the ninth Italian FREMM (out of ten ships under contract). The outfitting of the frigate is being concluded at the Fincantieri Muggiano shipyard in La Spezia. The aim is to deliver her to the Italian Navy in March 2020, fully on schedule and ready to be integrated with the rest of the fleet.
The Italian FREMM frigate “Antonio Marceglia” had its First Sea Going in the Gulf of La Spezia on 19 June 2018, in line with the industrial scheduled timing. During the First Sea Going, several platform and Combat Systems elements installed onboard have been set up, turned on and tested successfully.
