All major ship systems including information and communication, navigation, electric power and distribution, combat and the propulsion system will be tested before the sea trails.
The company is currently constructing 12 such ships, of which 11 FREMMs are for the French Navy while the other is for the Moroccan Navy.
The FREMM family of frigates are being designed with technically advanced features to be able to counter threats coming from air, sea and land.
