İkinci: “STM's goal: to provide cost-effective solutions more intelligently 1 November, 2019

At the “Arms and Security” Fair held in Ukraine, we heard from STM General Manager Murat İkinci about his goals for Ukraine and his vision for 2020. The latter sees the future of STM's agile, small, cost-effective solutions together with smarter use technologies while delivering its experience in marine platforms to Ukraine.

C4Defence: STM is coming to Ukraine for the first time. We see marine platforms in the foreground at the STM stand. What is your goal here?

STM General Manager Murat İkinci: We met with the Ukrainian Defence Ministry delegation at IDEF 2019. They have unfinished corvettes in their shipyards. They both want to revive this project and modernise the two ships they will receive as grants. They want to take advantage of our experience in these two issues. They shared the Korvet plans with us, we saw the project on the spot, examined it and said that we could support it. Currently, negotiations are underway.
