    DCNS showcases its solutions for naval defence at CANSEC exhibition, Ottawa, Canada

    DCNS, a leading group in naval defence, designing and building submarines and surface ships, developing associated systems and infrastructure, and offering a full range of services to naval bases and shipyards, is committed to developing long-term partnership with Canada. The Group participates in CANSEC exhibition in Ottawa that opened on May 25 (May 25-26). DCNS will showcase its expertise in this key export market and to meet key players, the Group said in its press release.

    DCNS created in 2014 a wholly-owned Canadian subsidiary, DCNS Technologies Canada Inc and intends to develop naval engineering and industrial partnerships in Canada.

    In particular, DCNS proposes for the Canadian Surface Combatant (CSC) project under the National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy (NSPS) the existing sea-proven FREMM frigate design adapted to the Canadian requirements and equipped with its SETIS combat management system (CMS). The Group intends to share with Canadian partners its unique expertise as Combat System Integrator and more generally as whole warship integrator.

    Following the successful conduct of the pre-qualification process, DCNS was shortlisted in November 2015 as a potential partner of the Royal Canadian Navy for the Warship Design and the Combat System Integration of the future Canadian Surface Combatants.

    Considered as a world leader in her class, the FREMM frigate combines the latest technologies developed by DCNS. It is a versatile vessel able to respond to any type of missions encompassing all warfare domains (AAW, ASW, ASuW, Land Attack, Command Ship).

    To date, three FREMM have been delivered to the French Navy. The first two frigates, Aquitaine and Provence, participated in early 2016 in the Task Force 50 operations in the Persian-Arabian Gulf, alongside FNS Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier and the American aircraft carrier, Harry S. Truman, demonstrating their interoperability with the US Navy. The third FREMM, Languedoc, was delivered to the French Navy in March 2016.

    Besides the French programme, which foresees the delivery of 8 FREMM to the French Navy before 2022, FREMM frigates were also delivered to the Royal Moroccan Navy in 2014 and the Egyptian Navy in 2015.

    The operational deployments and international successes of this latest-generation frigate demonstrate the capability of DCNS to design, build and maintain competitive, high-tech vessels which are perfectly suited to meet the needs of its clients.  

    In addition to the CSC project, DCNS positions itself to participate in the AJISS project for the In-Service Support of the Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ships (AOPS) and the Joint Support Ships (JSS). The Group has a long tradition of technology transfer and has consistently demonstrated that it can be a key partner for navies to expand their operational capabilities.

    DCNS already has a strong industrial commitment in Canada through its activities in tidal energy. Its subsidiary OpenHydro partnered in 2014 with Emera company to create a joint-venture called “Cape Sharp Tidal”. The objective is to develop a commercial tidal industry in Nova Scotia and Cape Sharp Tidal is well positioned to do so with the deployment within the next few months of one of the first grid-connected tidal array in the world. Two 16-metre OpenHydro tidal turbines will be installed in the Bay of Fundy during summer 2016. This will result in a fully grid-connected 4MW tidal array with the potential to provide energy to more than 1,000 customers.

    DCNS is the European leader in naval defence and a major player in maritime renewable energies. The Group designs, produces and supports submarines and surface ships. The Group also provides services for naval shipyards and bases. In addition, the Group offers a wide range of marine renewable energy solutions.
