The International Offshore Patrol Vessels Conference is being held at the Lorient Palais des Congrès from 28 September to 1 October, with DCNS as the main Conference Partner. Leading International experts will discuss Maritime Security and solutions to deal with emerging threats confronting maritime states.
Speakers from all over the world will share knowledge and discuss solutions for dealing with maritime piracy and security threats in general. DCNS specialists will present the Group’s latest innovations in maritime surveillance systems and systems of systems for ships participating in battlespace operations.
DCNS will use the event to present not only its expertise in naval shipbuilding, but also the Gowind family of OPV/corvettes to help coast guards and navies deal with emerging threats.
OPV/corvettes from the Gowind family range from 1,000 to 2,500 tonnes and can be tailored to customer needs regarding size, equipment and weapons. The family is designed to offer navies state-of-the-art assets for emerging missions from counter-piracy operations to sea control and denial, counter-terrorism, drug interdiction and anti-smuggling missions. They are also ideal for offshore platform protection, search and rescue, fisheries and environmental protection, and humanitarian missions.
The DCNS Group is also organising guided tours of its Lorient shipyard which specialises in the design and construction of corvettes and frigates with displacements from 1,000 to 6,500 tonnes.
