The Norwegian Ministry of Defence’s Directorate of Material Acquisition (NDMA) has just congratulated Navantia for the excellent execution of the contract for the configuration audit of the Fridtjof Nansen class frigates (F-310), concluded this year 2023.

This work, contracted in January 2022, consisted of carrying out the corresponding configuration audits of the Nansen frigates in order to integrate into the design documentation all the modifications introduced by NDMA in the frigates since they were delivered. This work, carried out under full coordination between Navantia and NDMA, allows to facilitate the start of the modernisation phase of the frigates and for which Navantia is in permanent contact with NDMA.

This congratulation from NDMA joins the current strengthening of the relationship between the Norwegian Ministry of Defence and Navantia as evidenced by additional contracts such as the Feasibility Phase of the Modernisation Programme and the Major Modifications (I-Mods) on the Nansen frigates.
