DCNS Pitches Its Submarine to Norway
Scorpene attack submarine

The French naval defense firm DCNS has proposed a modified design of its diesel-electric Scorpene attack submarine as a possible option to replace the Norwegian Navy's in-service Ula-class submarines.

DCNS, in collaboration with Thales and FSI, has organized an Industry Day in Oslo, on 6 December, for consolidating its industrial cooperation proposal to Norway in the frame of new Submarine program. The French-Norwegian event is aimed at strengthening and consolidating the industrial long term cooperation between both Industries.

DCNS was shortlisted as one of the two potential candidates for the replacement of Ula-class submarine fleet in April 2016.

The organization of thematic workshops has been the occasion to focus on technological partnerships around specific projects and technical areas. Those following working meetings are part of the Industrial Cooperation Plan process and a key step to reach the signature of fruitful partnerships between French and Norwegian companies in 2017, in continuation of the intense networking that started in 2016.
