Four new Gowind multirole corvettes for the Romanian Navy will be built locally at Constanţa Shipyard (Santierul Naval Constanta – SNC), after Romanian defence minister Gabriel Leş confirmed the winning bid on 3 July.

France-based Naval Group was selected for the programme ahead of Damen Schelde of the Netherlands and Italy-based Fincantieri, having submitted the lowest bid – EUR1.2 billion (USD1.355 billion) – of the three. The three bidders were downselected for the final stage of the tender on the promise to partner with Romanian shipyards.

“SNC will receive the necessary know-how to support the complete lifecycle of the corvettes, from building to maintenance and modernisation,” Naval Group announced on 3 July.
