Wolgast: billions of order: proportion of the Peene shipyard for Marine unclear

the extent to which the Peene river is not a shipyard involved in Wolgast on the construction of four multi-purpose combat ships for the German Navy, is not yet clear. A spokesman for the Dutch Damen shipyard as the General contractor, would not comment on Thursday on this. "We will be able to start in the first place (...) after the signing of the agreement with further consultation and implementation planning," he said. In the almost six billion Euro cost of the project is the largest marine order of this kind in the history of the Bundeswehr. The budget Committee of the Bundestag approved the project on Wednesday.

From the invitation to tender was to the beginning of the year, the women's group as a winner emerged. The yard had declared, that approximately 80 percent of the entire net would remain investment as the value added in Germany. The construction of the ships success at Blohm+Voss in Hamburg, with the inclusion of other shipyard locations of the North German Lürssen group and, thus, completely in Germany. These statements remain valid, as the company spokesman assured on Thursday.

The budget policy spokesman of the CDU/CSU parliamentary group, Eckhardt Rehberg, assumes that the Lürssen group includes Peene-Werft, which belongs to her. "This is going to work, I am convinced," said Rehberg, the German press Agency. "That would be a good fit as a follow-up order from corvettes of K 130 class." The 89-metre vessels will be built by a shipyard consortium in Bremen, Germany, Wolgast, Kiel and Hamburg.

The Peene-Werft Wolgast is specialized vessels for the construction of Marine. She was advised after the 2018 imposed arms export ban to Saudi Arabia in trouble because of a large order for patrol boats could not be completed. As compensation, orders for naval ships and government ships or repair orders should be to Wolgast directed.
