La Spezia, Italy (PortSEurope) January 12, 2022 – Fincantieri has started production activities for the first of two new-generation submarines, as part of the U212NFS (Near Future Submarine) acquisition program of the Italian Navy at the Muggiano shipyard in La Spezia. The program is led by OCCAR (Organisation Conjointe de Cooperation en matiere d’Armement, the international organization for joint armament cooperation). The project is an evolution
of the U212A program carried out in cooperation with the German thyssenkrupp Marine Systems. The new submarines will be highly innovative, with significant design modifications which will all be developed independently by Fincantieri. The submarines carry out many different tasks for the benefit of the community on a daily basis, preserving national interests and collective defense within the framework of the most important alliances in which the Italy participates, NATO and the EU.
