DCNS in 2015
A PARTNERSHIP WITH EGYPT TO DRIVE GROWTH
The DCNS group finds growth opportunities on international markets
On ships using advanced technologies, training also has a vital role to play. For example, the crew of the Tahya Misr is following an intensive fifteen-month programme, implemented by DCNS and its partners. Launched in March 2015, this programme consists of theoretical modules, training on land in simulators, exercises, manoeuvres and practical instruction at sea. At the same time, the Group has designed a long-term training programme for the crews who will be manning the four Gowind® 2500 corvettes and the two LHDs. This will include hosting 400 Egyptian sailors at SaintNazaire on board the two ships so that they can become fully familiar with operating them. Generating work and jobs for the French naval defence sec tor, the par tnership w ith the Egy ptian Nav y consolidates and accelerates DCNS’ international growth. It offers a new illustration of the Group’s capacity to operate beyond its frontiers and take on all aspects of a major contract. This includes an in-depth understanding of the issues and needs clients must
address, implementing customised suppor t and services, setting up the teams as close as possible to the production or maintenance centres, etc. All of which imply essential investments to be met when navigating in international waters.
