Naval Group participates to Balt Military Expo (BME) 2018 in Gdansk.
The Scorpène® class submarine presented at BME 2018 and offered in the Orka program is NATO’s most powerful conventional submarine thanks to a sea-proven platform fitted with combat capacities equivalent to those of the French Barracuda submarines.
It includes a sovereign deep strike capability provided by the combat-proven Naval Cruise Missile from MBDA – only integrated in the French solution thanks to an exclusive partnership – and a tactical fire power with the SM39 missile from MBDA and the F21 HWT from Naval Group.
The Scorpène® offers a long range submerged endurance thanks to the last generation fuel cell AIP system and acoustic superiority against today’s and future threat. Its maneuverability performances in the Baltic Sea are guaranteed by its X rudders.
Naval Group and PGZ cooperation agreement
Through the Orka program, the Polish authorities wish to enhance their national defence and shipbuilding capabilities.
Naval Group is committed to support this effort and signed a long-term cooperation agreement with PGZ in November 2017 to do so.
More than 100 Polish companies will be involved in Naval Group’s proposition for the Orka project. They will also join Naval Group’s worldwide supply-chain, therefore getting even more new opportunities. It will generate 2,000 jobs in Poland over a period of 15 years.
The knowledge shared by Naval Group will enable the Polish naval industry to undertake more complex and high-added value projects, securing employment on the long term.
