Official French Navy Statement on the Sale of a FREMM Multi-Mission Frigate to Egypt
 
The French Navy (Marine Nationale) issued the following statement today regarding the sale of a FREMM Frigate to Egypt: (translated from French by Navy Recognition)


The sale of a multimission frigate (FREMM) by DCNS to Egypt has been formalized. To respond to the request formulated by Egypt, the sale transaction took shape in a very short time, not compatible with the usual procedures and the construction from scratch of a new vessel. The only solution to ensure on-time delivery iss therefore to deliver to Egypt one of the FREMM originally intended for the French Navy: The Normandie frigate currently in final systems fitting out in Lorient and property of DCNS.

In practical terms, the sale of FREMM Normandie to Egypt has a strong impact on the French Navy. This sale implies a complete reorganization of the crews of the current Normandie and Provence frigates both finalizing their trial periods.

Specifically the current crew of Normandie will be transferred to Provence upon signature of the contract. The homeport of Provence will be Brest naval base to ensure the rise to power of anti-submarine warfare capabilities on the Atlantic coast as originally planned. The current crew of Provence will be reallocated for its part to Languedoc currently nearing completion.

This sale will result in the postponed arrival (for several months) of a FREMM in the naval forces and induce a one-year life extension of the Montcalm and Jean de Vienne ASW Frigates [ed.note Georges Leygues class]. Their decommissioning is now expected for 2017 and 2018 respectively to enable the French Navy to continue to ensure operational needs on all oceans, 24/7, 365 days a year.

Beyond the human impacts and reorganizations that the sale of the FREMM Normandie implies for the French Navy, this sale is the recognition of the expertise of the French shipbuilding industry. It also reflects the operational credibility of the French Navy and the daily high professionalism of its crews.

New Success in Egypt for DCNS and its FREMM Frigate (plus some technical details)
 
On Monday 16 February, DCNS signed a contract with the Ministry of Defence of the Arab Republic of Egypt for the supply of a FREMM multi-mission frigate. This agreement strengthens the strategic relations initiated by DCNS last July with the signing of a contract to supply four Gowind® 2500 corvettes. Egypt becomes the second export customer of the FREMM after Morocco.

Hervé Guillou, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of DCNS, declared: “I would like to thank the Egyptian authorities for the trust they have once again placed in us, for the participation in the modernization of their defence system. DCNS will be keen to demonstrate that this trust is justified. The Group will do its utmost to ensure that this program is completed successfully.”

The frigate, the current Normandie, will be delivered mid-2015 after some outfitting work, and the first phase of the training programme. The logistics and support services provided to the Egyptian Navy will then continue over several years.

For Hervé Guillou, “With this historical agreement, DCNS is pursuing a policy of long-term partnership with the Egyptian Navy and its shipyards, with whom we plan to invest in the long-term to develop their skills and industrial facilities. In addition, strengthening our relations opens new perspectives for the sale of vessels.”

The FREMM delivered to the Egyptian Navy will be taken from the series currently under construction for the French Navy. To ensure that the operational capacities of the French Navy will not be affected, DCNS will speed up the rate of production of subsequent ships.

“I would like to stress that this success would not have been possible without a close-knit team in France and the tireless support of the French state services, in particular the French defence procurement agency (DGA) and the French Navy, who accepted the postponement of delivery of its second frigate.”

FREMM technical characteristics

Multi-mission frigates are versatile vessels able to respond to all types of air, marine, submarine or land threats. FREMM frigates are at the cutting edge of technology and are perfectly suited to ensuring that client navies are able to respond to current threats and the growing needs of maritime security.

Overall length: 142 metres
Width: 20 metres
Displacement: 6,000 tonnes
Maximum speed: 27 knots
Crew: 108 persons (helicopter detachment included)
Accommodation capacity: 145 men and women
Range: 6,000 nautical miles at 15 knots

Comment and additional details
Egypt is reinforcing its naval capabilities in prevision of the new Suez Canal opening planned for this summer. Navy Recognition learned that DCI will be in charge of the formation of the Egyptian sailors. The Normandie Frigate was originally expected to be commissioned with the French Navy at the end of 2014. The same frigate was supposed to conduct the first live firing test of MBDA's Naval Cruise Missile (NCM) late last year or early this year. A source from the French defense industry explained to Navy Recognition the NCM mission computers would be taken off board because the Egyptian Navy won't be getting the cruise missiles (because of export restriction). It is not clear whether or not other equipment will be taken off, such as the 16x Sylver A70 vertical launch systems (strike length VLS used to accommodate the NCM), the two Nexter Narwhal remote weapon systems and the two SIGEN R ECM Electronic Warfare systems. DCNS, MBDA, Thales and Nexter didn't wish to comment on these technical aspects.

It has to be noted that the above systems are not present on the Mohammed VI Frigate sold to the Royal Moroccan Navy and this FREMM is only fitted with 16x Sylver A50 vertical launch systems for 16x ASTER 15 missiles. The current Normandie will probably end up looking like the Mohammed VI once delivered to Egypt unless:
» The Egyptian Navy could have made the request to replace the 16x Sylver A70 with a second row of A50 model in order to deploy up to 32x ASTER 15 SAM.
» For commonality with its four future Gowind corvettes, the Egyptian Navy may have requested to replace the A70 VLS with A43 model: The FREMM would then be fitted with 16x VLS cells similar to those fitted on its corvettes and would therefore be able to launch up to 16x VL MICA missiles in addition to the 16x ASTER 15.
» An even cheaper alternative of course would be to leave the 16x A70 cells in place since they can launch ASTER 15 missiles as well. The Egyptian Navy FREMM would then be able to deploy up to 32x ASTER 15.

Another unknown is the helicopter. FREMM Frigates are very potent anti-submarine warfare designed from the start to operate with a dedicated ASW helicopter, an NH90 NFH in the case of the French Navy. An helicopter was not part of the deal. Egypt will probably use one of its Kaman SH-2G Super Seasprites until they procure NH90 or Panther maritime helicopters from Airbus Helicopters. The possibilities are many and we will have to wait to find out the final configuration of the future Egyptian Navy FREMM, the current Normandie.

DCNS Transfered the FREMM Frigate Tahya Misr to the Egyptian Navy
 
France handed over the FREMM Multi-Missions frigate Tahya Misr (meaning Long Live Egypt) with hull number 1001 to the Egyptian Navy during a ceremony held June 23rd at the DCNS shipyard of Lorient in Brittany. Egypt becomes the second FREMM export customer for DCNS following Morocco which commissioned the Mohammed VI frigate in 2014.


The Chief of Staff of the French Navy (left), French Defense Minister (center) and Egyptian Defense Minister attended the ceremony.
          
The ceremony took place in presence of General Sedki Sobhy, the Ministry of Defense of the Arab Republic of Egypt, Jean-Yves Le Drian, the French Ministry of Defense, Admiral Osama Rabie, Commander in Chief of the Egyptian Navy, Admiral Bernard Rogel, the French Chief of Navy and Hervé Guillou, Chairman & CEO of DCNS. This important event marked the transfer of ownership of the FREMM Tahya Misr from DCNS to the Egyptian Navy.

Originally named Normandie, the Frigate was intended for the French Navy (second Aquitaine class frigate for the French Navy). On Monday 16 February 2015 however, DCNS signed a contract with the Ministry of Defence of the Arab Republic of Egypt for the supply of the FREMM Normandie multi-mission frigate. This agreement strengthened the strategic relations initiated by DCNS last July with the signing of a contract to supply four Gowind 2500 corvettes. Egypt becomes the second export customer of the FREMM after Morocco and second customer of the Gowind 2500 after Malaysia.

In addition to the vessel, the contract includes support and through life support services for five years as well as training by DCI NAVCO acting as contractor to DCNS.

As was the case for the Royal Morrocan Navy’s Mohammed VI FREMM, the former Normandie saw its second row of vertical launch system (SYLVER A70, used to launch MBDA’s naval cruise missiles) and the two SIGEN R-ECM electronic warfare and jammer systems removed because of export limitations for these sensitive equipments. The SATCOM antenna for the Syracuse system was also taken down because it can only be used by the French Navy. The crew of the Tahya Misr will be around 126 sailors (compared to 108 in the French Navy)

All other weapons, systems and equipments remains similar to French Navy’s Aquitaine class, including the two Nexter Narwhal 20B remote weapon stations (contrary to the Mohammed VI where they are not installed).

Acquired (at a expedited pace) for the Suez Canal commemoration ceremony to be held in early August, the Tahya Misr is set to become one of the most powerful surface combatant in the MENA region.

"A year ago, DCNS wrote the first lines of a strategic partnership bringing together the Group and the Egyptian Navy. Today, this privileged tie has taken on a new dimension. This event constitutes an important step in the crew taking on the FREMM", stated Hervé Guillou, Chairman & CEO of the DCNS Group. "The supply of this latest-generation frigate comes on top of the contract for four GOWIND 2500 corvettes signed in 2014. We are very proud to supply the Egyptian Navy with high-tech ships which will contribute towards the renewal of their surface-ship fleet" he added.

Since the signature of the contract on 16 February of this year with the Ministry of Defense of the Arab Republic of Egypt, for the supply of a FREMM multimission frigate, DCNS has carried out the adaptation and outfitting work required for the Egyptian Navy to take on the ship. Furthermore, from March 2015, DCNS has been training the Egyptian crew. In order to operate such a highly-automated ship safely, DCNS and its partners accompany the crew for a period of 15 months. The program is composed of several phases: theoretical modules, on-land training using platforms and simulators and then onboard training both at the quayside and at sea.

Egypt is About to Procure an NH90 NFH Maritime Helicopter for its New FREMM Multi-Mission Frigate
 
According to several Middle Eastern news outlets, Egypt is about to procure an NH90 NFH Maritime Helicopter for its newly acquired FREMM multi-mission frigate Tahya Misr (originally intended for the French Navy and formerly nammed Normandie). The NH90 NFH (for NATO Frigate Helicopter) is fully operational with the French Navy. According to many, the FREMM/NH90 combo is one of the most potent anti-submarine warfare tool available today.

Contacted by Navy Recognition, nobody at Airbus Helicopters or NHIndustries was available for comment.

Egypt may procure additional NH90 later as it is also set to receive four Gowind type corvettes from DCNS in addition to the FREMM frigate. Egypt today relies on a fleet of about 10 ageing SH-2G(E) Super Seasprite helicopters which were acquired from the US Navy and upgraded.

The French Navy currently uses all the capacities of the complex weapon system that is the NH90 NFH in operation, a weapon system embodying an acoustic suite, a sonar, an ESM sensor, a Chaff and Flare system, an Electro Optic suite, a multimode naval radar, as well as a new generation MU90 Torpedo.

The NH90 is the optimal choice for modern operations thanks to its large full composite airframe, its excellent power to weight ratio; and its wide range of rôle equipment. It features a redundant Fly-by-Wire flight control system for reduced Pilot’s workload and enhanced flight characteristics.

The NH90 is proposed in two main variants, one dedicated to naval operations, the NH90 NFH (Nato Frigate Helicopter) and a Tactical Transport Variant for land based operations. As of today, around 245 helicopters have been delivered in Naval and Tactical transport variants. They are in service in Germany, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Greece, Oman, Belgium, Australia and New Zealand. Qatar signed a letter of intent with Airbus Helicopters for 12 NH90 TTH and 10 NH90 NFH.

DCNS salutes the departure from France of the FREMM Tahya Misr of the Egyptian navy, for its home port in Alexandria
 
On 22 July 2015 the FREMM Tahya Misr of the Egyptian navy left the Brest naval base for its home port in Alexandria, Egypt. The Egyptian navy is now the third navy to operate this exceptional latest-generation warship. With the FREMM developed and built by DCNS, the Egyptian navy has the most modern front-line ship of the 21st century.




On Wednesday 22 July, the FREMM FFG-1001 Tahya Misr of the Egyptian navy left the Brest military port to join its home port in Alexandria, Egypt, six months after the contract for the supply of a multi-mission frigate was signed between DCNS and the Ministry of Defence of the Arab Republic of Egypt.

DCNS quickly initiated the required adaptation and outfitting work and the training of seamen to permit the Egyptian navy to take on the ship. As early as March 2015 DCNS trained the Egyptian seamen making up this frigate's crew. In order to operate such a highly-automated ship safely, DCNS and its partners accompany the crew for a period of 15 months. The programme includes several phases: theoretical modules, on-land training using platforms and simulators and then onboard training both at the quayside and at sea.

On 23 June of this year, the FREMM Tahya Misr was transferred from DCNS to the Egyptian navy during a ceremony attended by the Egyptian and French Defence Ministers. On 22 July, the Egyptian FREMM cast off from Brest and headed to Alexandria, its home port.

The partnership with DCNS does not, however, stop with the FREMM Tahya Misr leaving France: the contract also includes DCNS providing support services and through life support in Egypt for the next five years.

Second international success for the FREMM

The most technologically advanced and most competitive ship on the market, the FREMM meets the operational requirements of numerous navies due to its versatility and its manoeuvrability. Capitalising on its unprecedented success in Europe for the firing of the naval cruise missile on board the FREMM Aquitaine on 19 May 2015, DCNS offers its clients vessels that are global references in terms of their design and construction as well as for the integration of innovative systems.

In addition, the updating of the Military Planning Law will permit DCNS to continue developing its range of ships and services and to accelerate its international development. With the kick-off of the intermediate-size frigate program, DCNS is going to propose a product which meets the needs of the French Navy and will meet a growing international demand for front-line frigates of approximately 4,000 tons.

Currently, in the surface ship market, DCNS counts among its customers, the Royal Moroccan Navy with the delivery in January 2014 of the FREMM Mohammed VI and the Egyptian Navy with the delivery of the FREMM Tahya Misr and four GOWIND corvettes. Moreover, DCNS is building six GOWIND corvettes for the Malaysian Navy. These contracts show the success of DCNS’ products in the international market.

FREMM Tahya Misr took part in the celebration of the inauguration of the Suez Canal expansion
 
On the occasion of the inauguration ceremony of the new Suez Canal on August 6th, the FREMM frigate Tahya Misr, delivered by DCNS to Egypt on June 23rd, has joined a large part of the naval fleet around Marechal Abdel Fattah al-Sissi, President of the Arab Republic of Egypt. Benefiting from the latest developed technologies, the multimission frigate, now operational, contributes to the modernization of the Egyptian forces’ defence mechanisms.


During the ceremony, the Egyptian military released a new banner to celebrate the new Suez canal, with Rafale fighters & FREMM Frigate Tahya Misr produced by the French defense industry
          
François Hollande, President of the French Republic, and Jean-Yves Le Drian, the French Ministry of Defence, have attended the passage of the first ships through the new Suez Canal from the Mediterranean Sea heading to the Red Sea, led by FREMM Tahya Misr, in the presence of industry representatives, including Hervé Guillou, Chairman & CEO of DCNS. The participation of the frigate, the first of the five Combat ships ordered by Egypt to be operational, is a new page in the shared history with France.

“I am proud and moved, in this particular inauguration day of the expansion of the Suez Canal, to see one of the most modern frigates of the 21st century, under the Egyptian flag, entering the history of one of the greatest civilizations in the world, stated Hervé Guillou, I thank the Egyptian authorities for the confidence they have once again granted us. Thanks to this strategic partnership, DCNS contributes to the sovereignty of Egypt and to its industrial and naval autonomy.”

An ambitious calendar to meet the needs of the Egyptian Navy
Thanks to its performing industrial tool, its team expertise and the support of the French Navy, DCNS was able to propose a first rate ship in a short timeframe.

Moreover, a year ago, DCNS won a contract to supply the Egyptian Navy with four Gowind® corvettes. Slated in 2017, the delivery of the first corvette, which is developed and realized at the DCNS Shipyard in Lorient, will occur less than four years after the signature of the contract. DCNS started cutting metal for the very first unit on April 16th 2015.

On June 23rd 2015, DCNS delivered FREMM Tahya Misr after four months of intensive adaptation and outfitting work. The Group will now ensure the support and through-life support services for five years.
