German warship building has surprise: Invitation to bid instead of open tender

German warship building has surprise: Invitation to bid instead of open tender 30 January, 2017

The German Defence Ministry said it would ask the three-company consortium that built the existing warships to submit a bid for the planned purchase of five more corvettes valued at 1.5 billion euros. Germany’s first plan was to open tender for corvettes.

The ARGE K130 group that built the first five Braunschweig-class corvettes was led by Blohm + Voss GmbH, a Hamburg-based shipyard, with participation of two other shipyards, Friedrich Luerssen Werft in Bremen and SIAG Nordseewerke GmbH.
