Nederland levert geen marineschip voor antipiraterijmissie

DEN HELDER – Nederland zal dit jaar geen marineschip leveren aan de Europese antipiraterijmissie Atalanta voor de kust van Somalië. Dat is het gevolg van problemen met de inzetbaarheid van patrouilleschepen in combinatie met personeelstekorten en reeds aangegane NAVO-verplichtingen, schrijft minister Ank Bijleveld (Defensie) aan de Tweede Kamer.

Vorig najaar werd Zr. Ms. Rotterdam uit Den Helder nog drie maanden ingezet om de piraterij in het gebied te bestrijden. Nederland heeft sinds 2009 actief deelgenomen aan Atalanta.

France to push for more submarines under Navy’s $8-b ‘Project 75 India’

France will be making a strong and fresh pitch for building additional submarines under the Navy’s P-75(I) or ‘Project 75 India’ programme for $8 billion after the successful induction of first Scorpene-class submarine into the Indian Navy in December last year.

Securing additional orders for French defence conglomerate Naval Group (formerly DCNS) is going to be the topmost agenda of their Defence Minister Florence Parly, who is accompanying President Emmanuel Macron in his maiden India visit starting on Saturday, sources told BusinessLine on condition of anonymity.

Parly is going to raise this issue with her Indian counterpart Nirmala Sitharaman during a meeting on Saturday after the summit-level bilateral talks between Macron and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, sources said.

‘Betaalimpasse voor groen doorbreken’

‘Te vaak is de return on investment onvoldoende of zelfs compleet ontbrekend. Op dit moment is er vanuit de klanten van de binnenvaart een minimale “willingness to pay” voor groen. Deze impasse moet worden doorbroken.’ Dat staat in één van de 26 concrete projecten in het nieuwe werkprogramma Maritieme Strategie en Zeehavens voor de periode 2018-2021 van minister Cora van Nieuwenhuizen (Infrastructuur en Waterstaat) en de maritieme cluster.

EU defence ministers push ahead with military projects

A group of European defence ministers are pushing ahead with joint defence projects as part of broader effort at deeper military cooperation.

Federica Mogherini, the EU’s foreign policy chief, described the meeting among the ministers in Brussels on Tuesday (7 March) as “historic”.

The ministers signed off on some 17 collaborative projects, part financed by the EU budget, to create a so-called Permanent Structured Cooperation pact.

Ministers from 25 EU states had last December agreed to move forward on the plans with an overall aim to develop defence capabilities for EU military operations.

Tuesday’s get together in Brussels was the first such formal defence meeting. The United Kingdom, Denmark, and Malta are not taking part.

Interview: Fincantieri CEO on unifying Europe’s splintered naval industry

TRIESTE, Italy ― Giuseppe Bono, 73, is one of the longest serving CEOs in the defense business, having served 16 years at the helm of Italian state shipyard Fincantieri.

The expansion has been swift. He has kept a balance of cruise, ludockxury, offshore and naval vessels, recently booking a huge order for new Italian Navy ships, including so-called PPA multipurpose ships, a logistics vessel and a landing helicopter dock. In 2008, Fincantieri paid $120 million to buy four U.S. yards, including Marinette Marine in Wisconsin, which was picked by Lockheed Martin to build its Freedom-class littoral combat ships for the U.S. Navy.

Working with France’s Naval Group, Fincantieri developed the FREMM class of frigate which has been bought by Italy and France. This month the Navy named the FREMM design as one of five it was interested in for its FFG(X) program and handed Fincantieri a $15 million contract for conceptual designs.
