Built by DCNS under a self-funded programme, the ship incorporates a number of major technological innovations and will now have a chance to demonstrate its operational value on French Navy missions all over the world.

The Gowind OPV L’Adroit was officially made available to the French Navy on 21 October at a ceremony attended by Pascal Le Roy, Managing Director of DCNS Shipyard Lorient, and Vice Admiral Xavier Magne, commander of France’s naval action force (FAN). The ship will be under the command of Captain Loďc Guyot and remains the property of DCNS.

“The Gowind OPV L’Adroit is emblematic of DCNS’s ambitious growth strategy on the international market for small- and medium-displacement naval vessels,” said Pascal Le Roy, Managing Director of DCNS Shipyard Lorient, “DCNS is intent on developing an effective response to the world’s maritime safety & security needs as the threat environment grows more complex. Our partnership with a world-class naval force is an opportunity to demonstrate the many strengths of this ship. The endorsement of the French Navy will also help to promote Gowind in international markets as a needs-responsive range of naval vessels with real operational value.”

With two French Navy crews rotating every four months, L’Adroit will offer a high level of at-sea availability, spending 220 days a year on operational missions.

Over the next three years, the French Navy will be thoroughly testing the new ship and its advanced equipment and systems: UAV, commando boat launch ramps, panoramic bridge and single enclosed mast for 360° visibility, teleconferencing facilities, long-range acoustic devices, etc. With these high-tech systems, the ship is ideally equipped for current and emerging maritime safety & security missions, including fisheries surveillance, counter-piracy, drug interdiction, environmental protection, humanitarian aid, and search & rescue.

The operation is a further demonstration of DCNS’s ability to design and build a particularly innovative ship on a tight schedule – less than two years – and strictly on budget.
