Naval and coast guard vessels

Surveillance and security

We build naval and coast guard vessels that secure and monitor seas and coastal waters. Vessels that are capable of enduring the most challenging environmental conditions, from the tropical to polar waters.

The tailor-made vessels are developed for worldwide operations in all weather and sea conditions, both inshore and offshore. Specially designed to withstand operations in demanding arctic areas, the new coast guard vessels will have ice-strengthened hull and ice-class notation, and will be built according to the latest requirements for such specialized vessels.
