DCNS will participate in MSPO Expo 2015 in Kielce which will be held in Poland from 1 to 4 September 2015. DCNS is a world leader in naval defence and an innovator in energy. As a naval prime contractor, shipbuilder and systems integrator, DCNS combines resources and expertise spanning the naval defence value chain and entire system lifecycles. DCNS delivers innovative solutions from integrated warships to strategic systems, equipment and services.
DCNS proposes to the Polish Navy the sea proven SCORPENE® class submarine with a highly performing acoustic discretion, an increased submerged autonomy thanks to the latest-generation air-independent propulsion systems, and the capacity to integrate Naval Cruise Missile (NCM). On 19th May 2015, DCNS achieved a world premiere in Europe in successfully launching from a surface ship the first NCM, developed by defence group MBDA for the French armed forces. The NCM can strike distant land targets with very high precision, thanks to its guidance system, reducing the risk of collateral damage.
Moreover, DCNS positions itself to build a strategic partnership with Polish industry. Besides, the Group is proposing to the Polish Navy that the majority of work be carried out in Poland by PGZ shipyards, for construction and maintenance of SCORPENE® submarines. DCNS is also proposing to PGZ the construction and long-term maintenance in their shipyards of the future surface vessels for Poland based on the new successful GOWIND® 2500 design including a combat system that could be jointly provided with CTM, a PGZ’s company. DCNS has a long tradition of technology transfer and has consistently demonstrated that it can be a key partner for navies, giving its customers full control of their sovereignty.
Hervé Guillou, Chairman and CEO of DCNS, stated: “DCNS is committed to pursuing its growth internationally and is willing to develop a long term and strategic partnership with Poland. As the major supplier and partner of the French Navy and with the support of the French authorities and its industrial partners, DCNS will be able to provide the best naval solutions necessary to significantly strengthen sovereignty of Poland and its autonomy to ensure the through-life support for its forces.”
