On the occasion of the inauguration ceremony of the new Suez Canal on August 6th, the FREMM frigate Tahya Misr, delivered by DCNS to Egypt on June 23rd, has joined a large part of the naval fleet around Marechal Abdel Fattah al-Sissi, President of the Arab Republic of Egypt. Benefiting from the latest developed technologies, the multimission frigate, now operational, contributes to the modernization of the Egyptian forces’ defence mechanisms.

François Hollande, President of the French Republic, and Jean-Yves Le Drian, the French Ministry of Defence, have attended the passage of the first ships through the new Suez Canal from the Mediterranean Sea heading to the Red Sea, led by FREMM Tahya Misr, in the presence of industry representatives, including Hervé Guillou, Chairman & CEO of DCNS. The participation of the frigate, the first of the five Combat ships ordered by Egypt to be operational, is a new page in the shared history with France.

“ I am proud and moved, in this particular inauguration day of the expansion of the Suez Canal, to see one of the most modern frigates of the 21st century, under the Egyptian flag, entering the history of one of the greatest civilizations in the world, stated Hervé Guillou, I thank the Egyptian authorities for the confidence they have once again granted us. Thanks to this strategic partnership, DCNS contributes to the sovereignty of Egypt and to its industrial and naval autonomy.”

An ambitious calendar to meet the needs of the Egyptian Navy
Thanks to its performing industrial tool, its team expertise and the support of the French Navy, DCNS was able to propose a first rate ship in a short timeframe.

Moreover, a year ago, DCNS won a contract to supply the Egyptian Navy with four Gowind® corvettes. Slated in 2017, the delivery of the first corvette, which is developed and realized at the DCNS Shipyard in Lorient, will occur less than four years after the signature of the contract. DCNS started cutting metal for the very first unit on April 16th 2015.

On June 23rd 2015, DCNS delivered FREMM Tahya Misr after four months of intensive adaptation and outfitting work. The Group will now ensure the support and through-life support services for five years.

A strategic partnership between France and Egypt
DCNS (dcnsgroup.com) is committed to a long term partnership with the Egyptian Naval Shipyards. The Group is transferring the necessary skills and know-how to Alexandria Shipyard for the corvettes building as well as the high technology equipment integration and their through-life support. DCNS will provide the SETIS® combat system and the Panoramic Sensors and Intelligence Module (PSIM), one of the major technological innovations developed by DCNS for this type of vessels. This assembly brings together the integrated mast with its various instruments as well as the Operational Centre and its associated technical rooms.

Besides managing the delivery of FREMM frigate Tahya Misr with its exceptional operational capabilities and the future Gowind® corvettes, DCNS has been training the Egyptian crew to operate the ship, to handle weapons systems and the latest-generation Combat Management System SETIS® developed by DCNS.

Beyond a complete and innovative range of products, DCNS (dcnsgroup.com) demonstrates its capacity to propose strategic partnerships to its clients associating know-how and technology transfers to enhance the industrial autonomy of its clients.
