    Spanish, SA shipbuilders confirm localisation embedded in patrol-vessel bid

    Spanish State-owned shipbuilding group Navantia has confirmed that, if its design is chosen for the South African Navy’s (SAN’s) new offshore patrol vessels (OPVs), they will be built locally. The SAN is seeking to procure new OPVs and inshore patrol vessels (IPVs) under Project Biro and Navantia is offering its BAM design for the OPV requirement. (BAM is the Spanish acronym for Maritime Action Vessel.) “If the BAM is selected by the SAN, the ships will be built in South Africa, with help and technology transfer from Navantia,” assures Navantia President José Manuel Revuelta. “What we want to do is increase our cooperation with South Africa industry, through the Paramount Group. But the ships would be built in South Africa – that is the main idea. Navantia would help Paramount with the building of the ships, like we have done with partners in Australia, with the [Royal Australian Navy’s] air warfare destroyers (AWDs).”
