Naval Group to freshen up two Moroccan Navy frigates
The French defence contractor has had to firmly defend the cost of its services to keep its MRO contract with the Royal Moroccan Navy.
In landing the contract to construct an Avante 1800 patrol boat, Spain's Navantia is hoping to become a regular supplier to Morocco's royal navy. Meanwhile, its French rival Naval Group has chosen to focus its efforts on submarines.
With the help of former Romanian intelligence officials, Dutch shipbuilder Damen has resumed its offensive to supply warships to Romania's Navy under a contract that France's Naval Group has been trying to finalise for three years.
