Naval Group is eager to answer to various navies’ determination to achieve operational excellence by offering a complete range of services that cover the complete life cycle of ships and naval infrastructures.

Naval Group’s services offer comes with long-term support to navies and local industrial entities, to ensure that their fleets contribute - both at present and in the future - to the nation’s sovereignty.

Among our services, the in-service support and modernisation solutions are adapted to all types of ships, designed or not by Naval Group, and to the specific needs of navies. Logistic support and the modernisation of naval infrastructures are also included in our offer.

Our tailored service offering

    Keeping fleets operational

    The operational availability of the fleet is a major challenge for navies that must carry out increasingly numerous sovereignty missions in a context of economic constraint.   

    The solutions and services offered by Naval Group in the field of ISS (in-service support) allow navies to optimise the operational availability of their fleets. 

    By using the operational experience acquired in France as well as internationally, Naval Group offers personalised and innovative solutions for maintenance and modernisation covering all types of ships. Naval Group also proposes combat system and platform modernisation solutions to increase the capabilities of existing surface ships and submarines.

    Naval Group has developed innovative digital solutions for services and products in the areas of cybersecurity and smart maintenance in order to optimise availability and lower cost of ownership.

    Naval Group offers a comprehensive logistics solution throughout the service life of ships, in particular via its e-negotiation platform Navygate.

    Suitable naval infrastructures

    Solid and reliable infrastructures are essential to ensure the construction and maintenance of ships whilst conserving full sovereignty. 

    Naval Group has developed know-how and expertise - through numerous cooperative projects and local partners - to accompany industrial activities throughout a ship’s life cycle. This unique expertise enables us to offer our clients solutions to create, optimise or modernise their shipyards and naval bases. 


    Knowledge transfer and local growth

    The transfer of technology and skills in the field of maintenance is a major asset for developing and supporting the sovereignty of navies and the local industrial ecosystem. Naval Group is one of the rare naval defence players able to offer this service worldwide.

    The Gowind® OPV - chosen by Malaysia and Egypt - is a perfect illustration of this. While the first ship of the class was built in France, the second was built mainly in Egypt, where it had a significant positive impact on the local economy. Another illustration of Naval Group’s support for local economies is the “Make in India” policy that has enabled the construction of Kalvari-class conventional submarines in India. These Scorpène® - type submarines are built locally by Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Ltd (MDL). Naval Group facilitated the local production of heavy - duty equipment while contributing to the development of crew skills, thus supporting the local industrial ecosystem.

    Training and simulators

    Providing training to crews and industrial partners is an important stake for navies in maintaining their operational advantage.

    Our training offer is key to the self-sufficiency of navies as it allows them sovereign operation of their fleets over the long term.

    Training is also essential for making the most of a ship’s potential and for ensuring that all system and/or equipment updates are carried out by crews. Naval Group University can deploy all options and formats according to the expectations and needs of each navy: academic training, on-board training, on-site training or training in navy centres, or virtual or augmented reality simulators.

    Raising awareness, training and teaching

    Knowledge of the threat, awareness, training and practice for employees and customers are an integral part of Naval Group’s approach to combating cyber threats and managing cyber attacks.

    Naval Group is also committed to training experts within the naval sector by creating the Naval system cyber defence chair with the Atlantique IMT, Thalès and the École Navale. Note: Master’s degree specialised in cybersecurity of maritime and port systems opens in January 2020.
