 iXblue to Supply Nav Systems for Argentine OPVs

: Dec 20, 2019 - : 5:36 am

iXblue navigation solutions have been selected by Kership, to equip the three new offshore patrol vessels (OPV 87 type) being built for the Argentine Navy. This is the first time that iXblue navigation systems have been selected by shipbuilder Kership.

Kership is a joint venture founded by Naval Group and Piriou, and has selected iXblue’s Marins inertial navigation systems and Netans data distribution units (DDU) for these three future ships.

“Kership’s choice of iXblue solutions for the navigation systems of the three new patrol vessels currently under construction is a source of pride for our group. These ships will join the Drummond-class corvettes (A69 type), Intrepida-class guided-missile patrol boats and MEKO-class Rosales frigate of the Argentine Navy which are already equipped with our technology,” says Jean-Marc Binois, Sales Director. “This contract is an endorsement of the reliability and performance of our technology, already adopted by more than 40 navies around the world.”

iXblue is already a partner of Naval Group and Piriou on various naval programs such as the future defence and intervention frigates (FDI) and multi-mission ships (B2M) of the French Navy.

The company’s Marins navigation systems and Netans data distribution & processing units are onboard more than 650 surface vessels and submarine platforms
