Joint Proposal In Response to Canada's Pursuit

Joint Proposal In Response to Canada's Pursuit 5 December, 2017

French and Italian shipbuilders Naval Group and Fincantieri submitted a joint proposal for the Royal Canadian Navy's requirement to acquire an existing and proven NATO warship design, Fincantieri announced on 1 December. 

The companies are offering a solution based on the FREMM frigate design, modified to meet Canada's needs and requirements. Should the offer be accepted, the future frigates would be built in Canada at Irving Shipbuilding soon.

Naval Group and Fincantieri have previously collaborated on several major naval projects, including the joint development of the FREMM frigate. 

FREMM frigate's general purpose and anti-submarine warfare variants are already in service in two leading NATO navies.
