Norway Gives up From Sunken Frigate

Norway Gives up From Sunken Frigate 17 May, 2019

Repairing the frigate “KNM Helge Ingstad“, built by the Navantia shipyards would be more expensive than ordering a new one, concludes a report presented on Wednesday by the Agencia de Material de Norwegian defence.

The study estimates that the cost of repairs will be between 12,000 and 14,000 million Norwegian crowns (1,223 and 1,427 million euros), while that of acquiring a new one would be 11,000 to 13,000 million (from 1,121 to 1,325 million euros). 

The damages suffered by the frigate are “almost total” and, although it would be possible to repair it, the risks from the technical, economic and time point of view are greater than acquiring a new one.
