The Brazilian Navy has issued a ‘consultation call’ for building corvettes, a procedure open to Brazilian and foreign shipbuilders and companies organised into a consortium.
The effort is meant to obtain four ships forming the Tamandaré class, according to the basic project developed by the navy.
Companies interested in learning more about the construction and acquisition process were invited to view from 10-11 April the initial documentation with preliminary programme information, so they can later draft commercial proposals.
The Tamandaré class is one of Brazilian Navy’s top priorities.
Brazil’s Ships Projects Center (CPN) has been working to establish the project, receiving assistance from Fincantieri’s VARD.
