PT Pal selects corvette upgrade team [INDODEF16-D1]

01 November 2016

A Spanish industry team of Indra and Navantia has been contracted by Indonesian shipyard PT PAL for the upgrade of the Indonesian Navy (TNI-AL) Fatahillah-class corvette KRI Malahayati.

Under the terms of the €15.7 million ($18 million) contract, the two companies will upgrade the combat system on board Malahayati with new command, fire control and electronic warfare systems. The overall scope of supply includes Indra’s Rigel electronic support measures outfit, Navantia’s Dorna fire control director, and a variant of Navantia’s SCOMBA combat management system.

The PT PAL contract award is part of a business partnership initiative under which Indra and Navantia are working increasingly closely on both domestic and export pursuits.

The two companies are already partnered on a number of programmes for the Spanish Navy’s future F110 frigate programme.
