The Danish Acquisition and Logistics Organisation (DALO) has placed an order with TenCate Advanced Armour for the delivery of armour systems, which will be integrated onto the Royal Danish Navy’s Iver Huitfeldt-class frigates and Absalon-class support ships.
Aimed at protecting mission-critical areas of navy ships, the modular armour kits will be supplied and installed over the following months.
TenCate Advanced Armour managing director Helle Specht said: "TenCate has previously supplied large quantities of armour protection during the build-up phase of the ships, and we regard the latest order as an important next step in securing the best protection at the best price for the Danish Navy personnel."
Designed to fit the individual geometry of vessels, TenCate Advanced Armour comes with modular configuration and can withstand a range of threats encountered in mission areas.
