March 22, 2017: On March 17th, 2017, DCNS is proud to announce the success of the first sea trials of the firstof-class Gowind® 2500 corvette under construction in Lorient, France by DCNS. Ten Gowind® 2500 corvette, aimed at supplementing DCNS surface vessel product range, has been ordered so far by international navies.

The first sea trials of the first Gowind® 2500 corvette designed and built in Lorient by DCNS underline the quality of the conception and production of this new range of vessels. “It is a very important moment for DCNS: the Gowind® corvette designed especially for the international market is now sea proven,” explains Eric Chaplet, DCNS Marketing Vice-President. “We are very proud to announce that, with the Gowind® 2500 corvette, DCNS now has the last generation vessel to strengthen its product line geared to the international naval defence market.

“The sea trials of the Gowind® 2500 corvette once again illustrate DCNS’ industrial capacity to manage and realize major programs with products meeting the needs of our customers”, adds Pierre Legros, DCNS Senior Vice-President Programs. The first Gowind® 2500 corvette is being built on the DCNS site in Lorient, France, one of the most modern naval shipyards in Europe. Nine other corvettes are to be built in Egypt and Malaysia, on the basis of technology transfer realized by DCNS.

An international success for DCNS
