DCI-DESCO announced the launching of the first restored Kuwait Naval Force P37 patrol boat within the scope of the «Technical and Logistic Support Program» (TLSP). This program is conducted under a contract signed in 2008 between DCI-DESCO, acting as representative of French State, and the Kuwaiti Ministry of Defense for the restoration of the 8 P37 patrol boats due to be complete in 2012.

In order to meet Kuwait Naval Force requirements for the refit of these highly armed boats which make this program a sophisticated operation, DCI-DESCO federated a consortium of French companies from the naval maintenance sector.

Since February 2010, DCI-NAVFCO also has been taking part in this project for the operational training of the 8 patrol boats crews. This project illustrates DCI-DESCO's capability to supply «turnkey» prime contracting support in the naval field. Dedicated to the transfer of French Defense Acquisition Agency (DGA) know-how in complex programs management, DCI-DESCO provides services to its institutional customers as a global solutions operator.

Philippe Juliot, DCI-DESCO's Managing Director said that "the TLSP contract in Kuwait allows DCI to demonstrate its know-how in the field of naval projects. DCI-DESCO's major role in this program confirms the confidence of the Ministry of Defense and French companies in our capability to lead complex programs".
