France’s Naval Group launched the first Gowind Corvette warship built in Egypt yesterday in Alexandria shipyard.

Along with the first ever delivered Gowind corvette, Elfateh, already deployed by Egyptian Navy on many operational theatres, it will contribute to increase the Egyptian Navy Power.

The corvette is part of a strategic and long-term partnership with Egypt. It is the fifth ship designed by Naval Group, operated by the Egyptian Navy, after the already delivered FREMM frigate Tahya Misr in 2015, the two Landing Helicopter Docks Nasser and Sadat in 2016 and the first Gowind corvette, Elfateh, in 2017.

Hervé Guillou, Naval Group’s CEO declared: “Naval Group is very proud to be part of this long-term partnership with the Egyptian authorities and industry.”

In addition, Naval Group will participate in the maintenance and modernisation of this fleet.
