Paris, 3rd July 2019 – The Romanian authorities announced today the selection of Naval Group and its partner Santierul Naval Constanta (SNC) for the programme to build four new Gowind multi-mission corvettes, to modernize the T22 frigates and to create a maintenance centre and a training centre.
The Naval Group and SNC teams are honoured by the trust of the Romanian authorities and look forward to working together to provide the Romanian Navy with the four state-of-the art Gowind® corvettes.
With this programme, Romania will benefit from Naval Group’s long tradition of excellence and experience. The Gowind® design has already been chosen by several countries. The platform and its combat system including the Setis® combat management system (CMS) offer a comprehensive set of state-of-the-art NATO-standard combat-proven capabilities for antisurface warfare (ASuW), anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and anti-air warfare (AAW). The Gowind® is the perfect solution for Romania to carry out its strategic missions as a major NATO partner in the Black Sea and will also strengthen European Defence capabilities.
Naval Group and SNC’s offer is based on the complementarities of their partnership, which will ensure Romania’s sovereignty and autonomy since SNC will receive the necessary know-how to support the complete life cycle of the corvettes, from building to maintenance and modernisation.
