Company insight


A new milestone for Spain’s naval history


Shipbuilding company Navantia is 100% owned by the Spanish government and has more than 300 years of experience in the maritime sector. It is a world reference in the defence sector, offering products, systems and services based on new technologies to better solve its clients’ needs.


N


avantia is currently building four S80 submarines and five F110 frigates for the Spanish Navy. It also has ongoing contracts with Australia, the US, Morocco, Norway, Turkey and Saudi Arabia. The launch of the first submarine, the S-81 Isaac Peral, took place on 22 April and was a very important milestone for Navantia and for Spain in general, making it one of the few countries in the world that can design and build submarines. The S-80 submarine has considerably improved its stealth capabilities and stands as the world’s most advanced conventional submarine. With an overall length of 80.8m, a diameter of 7.3m and a submerged


displacement of around 3,000t, it includes an integrated combat system and platform control system developed by Navantia Sistemas. Its added value comes from the BEST (bio-ethanol stealth technology) air- independent propulsion system, which supplies electrical power at any depth so it can remain underwater for longer periods. Saudi Arabia and Australia are among Navantia’s most strategic clients. The company has a contract with the former for five Avante corvettes, three of which have already launched and the remainder are currently under construction. The most recent launch was on 28 March and the fourth is expected next July.


For Australia, Navantia recently delivered the auxiliary oiler replenishment HMAS Stalwart, the second of a series of two ships based on the Spanish Navy Cantabria. The first unit HMAS Supply has already entered in service. Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, Navantia has kept its activity running in a safe manner, minimising delays and reducing impact on clients. The significant milestones achieved in the past two months clearly show that Navantia’s programmes are progressing and the effort it is making to support its clients and partners is paying off. ●
