During a ceremony in Mina Salman at Royal Bahrain Navy Head Quarter on Monday, Leonardo delivered the first of six upgraded Al Manama naval vessels ahead of schedule, following a deal signed in 2015 with the Royal Bahrain Naval Force.
The upgrade includes a new weapon control system, training services and logistics.
This is just one of the latest in a string of successes for Leonardo in Bahrain, where the company has also supplied advanced air traffic control radar systems, which are enhancing the safety and efficiency of the country’s national airspace management.
Bahrain, as well as other countries in the Gulf region, can be further supported by Leonardo’s expertise in the naval field, where the company has a track-record in the upgrade of corvettes, offshore patrol vessels and frigates, and in the land sector, where the company offers fully integrated solutions, warfare systems and cost-effective overhaul programs.
Leonardo is among the top ten global players in Aerospace, Defense and Security and Italy’s main industrial company.
As a single entity from January 2016, organized into seven business divisions (Helicopters; Aircraft; Aero-structures; Airborne & Space Systems; Land & Naval Defense Electronics; Defense Systems; Security & Information Systems), Leonardo operates in the most competitive international markets by leveraging its areas of technology and product leadership.
