Severnaya Verf Shipyard, Algerian Navy Sign Modernization Contract

 

Severnaya Verf shipyard and Algerian Navy signed a contract for integrated modernization of third pair of Project 1234E and Project 1159T ships. The contract was concluded under the agreement tied between FSUE Rosoboronexport and Algerian defense ministry.

At present, Severnaya Verf is completing modernization of second two Algerian warships (Project 1234E corvette and Project 1159T frigate). In June 2012, the ships will start shipyard’s sea trials and will be delivered to the customer in July.

In Feb 2011, Severnaya Verf had successfully upgraded and delivered first pair of ships to Algerian Navy (Project 1234E Rais Hamidou and Project 1159T Mourad Rais).

Modernized ships are equipped with up-to-date radars, radio communication systems, sonars, and missile strike systems. About 80% of onboard systems have been replaced during the overhaul works; service life of the ships became 10 years longer.

“In the course of modernization, the overaged assets have turned into warships of the 21-st century. This complicated task has been accomplished thanks to design studies and high technological discipline of production. Conclusion of another foreign contract indicates success of our shipyard at world surface shipbuilding market”, emphasized Andrei Fomichev, Director General of JSC Severnaya Verf.

By governmental decision, JSC Severnaya Verf is currently the only authorized supplier of Project 20380/20385 corvettes and Project 22350 frigates for Russian Navy.

In accordance with concluded contracts, Severnaya Verf is to build and deliver six Project 22350 frigates and six Project 20380/20385 corvettes to Russian Navy by 2020.

Offshore Patrol Vessels Technology 2016

Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs) are becoming an increasingly important resource for Navies and Coast Guards around the world. As shipbuilding technologies continue to advance the mission scope for a single OPV platform greatly increases. Policing missions such as Counter-Piracy and Counter-Terrorism operations can be supplemented now by survey and Mine Countermeasure operations simply by swapping equipment on board the ship. This is all done with a greatly reduced cost compared to mission-specific platforms or full scale warships which have greater maintenance and operations costs compared to flexible OPVs.

Therefore SMi is proud to announce that it will be launching its inaugural OPV Technology event which will focus on the new potential for OPVs within this proliferation in combat and combat support technology capabilities. The event will be held in London on the 8th-9th June to discuss how individual nations are working to enhance the capabilities of their coastal fleets as well as the prospect for future cooperation and interoperability.

Expert speaker line up for 2016 includes key decision makers from: US Africa Command, UK Border Force, French Navy, NATO, Italian Navy, Royal Norwegian Navy, Finnish Border Guard, TNO, Damen Shipyards, C-SIGMA, IISS and many more.

 

Benefits of Attending:

  • Extremely focused on new technologies available to OPV using nations across Europe and beyond
  • Expert led panel discussions on international cooperation in operations and the future prospect for modular technologies
  • Briefings from leading Navy and Coast Guard officers from around the world
  • Learn about current and future national OPV platforms and how they enhance maritime security
  • Discover how to optimise business potential by working with these countries
