Al Defaiya : Naval Group lance une deuxième corvette Gowind® pour la marine des Émirats arabes unis

Le 13 mai 2022, Al Emarat, la deuxième corvette Gowind® commandée par les Emirats Arabes Unis (EAU) à Naval Group, a été lancée au chantier naval de Lorient en France, en présence d’une délégation officielle de la Marine des Emirats Arabes Unis.

In 2019, the United Arab Emirates ordered two Gowind® corvettes to be built in France. The first corvette, Bani Yas, was launched in December 2021.

Naval Group, as a turn-key solution provider, will also train the UAE Navy’s crew from the equipment level up to the operational level. Starting in France, this preparation will continue with team-building and practice on operational scenarios in every warfare area in the Gulf. Stéphane Frémont, Director of Surface Ship Programs at Naval Group, said: “The launching of Gowind® Al Emarat is a major industrial and symbolic milestone, where the corvette reaches her natural environment. The two Bani Yas class vessels benefit from the modular design of the Gowind® family and are the perfect asset to help the UAE Navy meet the challenges of today and tomorrow thanks to the most advanced technologies.” LINK TO ARTICLE
