We are thyssenkrupp Marine Systems. We have a history of over 180 years and have been building submarines for over 160 of those.
We've given ourselves the goal to help the Netherlands to build submarines to replace the current Walrus submarines of the Royal Netherlands Navy. Our wealth of submarine building experience enables us to deliver proven technology on budget and on time.
Should we receive the assignment from the Ministry of Defense to deliver the new submarines, we will partner with the Den Helder-based, navy-owned Arsenal, ensuring the vessels are built in the Netherlands and the expertise falls into government-owned hands. With this, we hope to restore a long tradition of Dutch submarine manufacturing 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.
