Keel-laying ceremony for Poland’s first signal intelligence warship was held today in Gdańsk, at the Remontowa Shipbuilding SA shipyard.

Poland inked a €600 million deal with Swedish company Saab in November 2022 for two Delfin-class SIGINT/ELINT vessels. A SIGINT ship is used to support the acquisition of intelligence data across the full spectrum of naval intelligence capabilities. 

Remontowa Shipbuilding S.A. would be the Polish subcontractor for Saab. The design works would be outsourced to Gdynia-based MMC Ship Design & Marine Consulting Ltd.

The warship will be launched in 2026. The first and second ships will be delivered to the Polish Navy by 2027.

Currently, the Polish Navy operates two Project 863 SIGINT vessels, assigned to the Reconnaissance Vessels Group of the 3rd Ships Flotilla.
