Latest Minehunters Presented at NAVDEX
Intermarine (Immsi Group) is presenting its line of defence vessels and patrol boats at NAVDEX, with a special focus on minehunters.
The company’s Sarzana shipyard has built more than 40 mine countermeasure vessels, in nine different configurations, for the navies of eight countries, including the USA, Finland, Australia and Italy.
Intermarine strategy for the next five years is targeting further advances in the technology content of its ships, with the development of innovative Mission Systems with respect to traditional mine countermeasure vessels, integrating sophisticated electronic navigation and reconnaissance equipment as well as many autonomous and wire-guided underwater vehicles for locating and disarming naval mines.
The company will continue development of its offer of naval craft such as patrol boats and multirole vessels and the Sarzana shipyard aims to extend its cooperation ties with the Italian Navy.
The Intermarine three-year plan projects an expansion of the order book from approximately 160 million euro to 500 million euro as early as mid-2016.
NAVDEX, the naval defence exhibition organised as part of the International Defence Exhibition & Conference (IDEX), which was officially opened on 22 February in Abu Dhabi, will run until 26 February.
