Brazil attracts multiple firms interest for ambitious corvette project
« Reactie #2 Gepost op: 18/05/2017 | 16:57 uur »
A total of 21 companies have answered a public call, officially issued by Brazil on 10 April, to potentially built its four Tamandaré-class corvettes in co-operation with a local shipyard, the Brazilian Navy announced on 17 May.

Expressing interest were BAE Systems; Chalkins Shipyards; China Shipbuilding and Offshore; China Shipbuilding Trading; Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding; DCNS do Brasil Serviços Navais; Ficantieri; German Naval Yards Kiel; Goa Shipyard; Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders; Navantia; Poly Technologies; Posco Daewoo do Brasil; Rosoboronexport JSC; Saab; Singapore Technologies Marine; Ukraine's State Research and Design Shipbuilding Centre; Turkish Associated International Shipyards (TAIS); Thyssenkrupp Marine Systems (TKMS); Wuhu Shipyard; and Zentech do Brasil Serviços Técnicos.

A request for proposal is to be issued in second half of 2017, the navy said.

The Brazilian Navy's Naval Projects Center developed the corvette basic design project with assistance from Fincantieri's VARD. The project is a top priority and integrates the service's strategic programme 'Construção do Poder Naval', which is run by the Navy Programs Management Directorate.

The vessel, shown here in a rendering, is required to be built in Brazil; potentially with the navy's shipyard Arsenal de Marinha do Rio de Janeiro (AMRJ) playing a key role.
