Navantia has signed in Sydney a new contract with the Capabilty and Sustainement Group (CASG), for Platform Design Services, which means a strong support of Navantia in Australia.
This contract will allow Navantia Australia to provide services as engineering, technical assistance etc. directly to the client (CASG) for the ALHDs and LLCs, which Navantia designed for Australia. It is a very relevant agreement for Navantia Australia's interests, since it establishes a direct channel of provision of services with the Royal Australian Navy that will permit to tighten relationships, and to open new opportunities to provide services fundamentally from Australia.
For Navantia, this milestone is one more step in the direction of increasing its local capability and penetrating as trustworthy supplier into Australia, as well as an accolade in the confidence deposited in Navantia Australia.
The Spanish shipbuilder Navantia is a world reference in the design, construction and integration of state-of-the-art war ships, as well as ship repairs & modernizations.
