Alewijnse Gets Second Indonesian Naval Frigate Contract
Alewijnse Marine Systems has received a contract for the complete electrical installation package for the second Indonesian naval frigate.
During the contract, Alewijnse will provide complete electrical installation packages including platform automation and integrated bridge systems on twin guided missile frigates.
One of the frigates is currently under construction at Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding (DSNS) in the Netherlands and PT PAL (Persero) Shipyard in Indonesia.
Alewijnse Marine Systems’ engineers teamed up with their counterparts at Damen as the work began on the first vessel.
Alewijnse CEO, Dick Alewijnse, said that they were very pleased that Damen chose them for collaboration on the project.
Alewijnse first started working with Damen Schelde Naval Shipyard in the naval shipbuilding sector in 2004, on the Dutch Holland class patrol vessel, the CEO added.
