DSME Gets USD 230 Mln Contract from Norwegian Defense Logistic Organization
DSME received an order for a combat support ship from the Norwegian Defense Logistics Organization. The value of this contract is approximately 230 million USD. The warship is scheduled to be delivered to the Norwegian Navy in September 2016.
The recommendation of the U.K. government influenced the Norwegian government and the Defense Logistics Organization to choose DSME as its business partner. DSME won an order from the United Kingdom Navy to build four combat support ships in March last year. The U.K. government has been so impressed with DSME’s project implementation capabilities that it had no hesitation in providing its recommendation to the Norwegian government.
It is also significant that Norway was one of the countries that supplied medical ships to Korea during the Korean War back in the 1950s.
