As informed, the contracts were signed today (9 May) at the DEFEA exhibition in Athens.

Naval Group’s Hellenic Industrial Participation plan was launched in March 2022 at the start of the FDI HN program. With the contracts signed on May 9th at DEFEA, the HIP activities involve now more than 60 Hellenic companies, with high skilled jobs and economic benefits for Greece. The new contracts signed today at the DEFEA exhibition concern:

  • SALAMIS SHIPYARDS: pre-outfitting activities on hull blocks both for Hellenic and French FDI;
  • THEON, EFA Group company: optronic activities onboard FDI HN through one of our main partners SAFRAN;
  • MEVACO: several new contracts for the production and supply of mechanical equipment of the FDI;
  • PRISMA: production of naval weapons component;

Naval Group seeks to enlarge the Hellenic companies’ participation in its global supply chain, from which they will have the opportunity to participate in other programs and future international competitions. Naval Group’s Hellenic Industrial Participation plan will contribute to the construction and support of the FDI HN program.
