We are thyssenkrupp Marine Systems. We have a history of over 180 years and have been building submarines for over 160 of those.
We have given ourselves the goal to help the Netherlands build the submarines that replace the current Walrus submarines of the Royal Netherlands Navy (RNLN). Our wealth of submarine building experience enables us to deliver proven technology within budget, 100% to specification, and within the contracted time schedule.
Should we receive the assignment from the Ministry of Defense to deliver the new submarines, we will partner with the Naval Maintenance and Sustainment Agency (DMI, Directie Materiële Instandhouding), the RNLN arsenal in Den Helder, ensuring submarine expertise falls into government-owned hands. With this, we hope to restore the long Dutch submarine tradition and create up to 500 direct and 1,500 indirect jobs in the province of North-Holland.
We therefore invite the Netherlands to become part of our European submarine family.
