The design and construction of modern, non-nuclear submarines with Air-Independent Propulsion (AIP) is a complex, time-consuming, and cost-intensive business. As the most experienced designer and builder of non-nuclear submarines in the world, thyssenkrupp Marine Systems has made many valuable contributions to the development of the newest technologies.
Over the past 60 years, we have been contracted to deliver more than 160 submarines and are the world leader in non-nuclear submarines: 70% of NATO's non-nuclear submarine fleet was constructed by thyssenkrupp Marine Systems.
We are the only supplier of this type of submarine to NATO partners who do not have such design capabilities in their own country. This valuable experience enables us to deliver proven technology within budget, 100% to specification, and within the contracted time schedule. We therefore believe that thyssenkrupp Marine Systems is a safe and reliable choice for the Netherlands.
As a naval system house with 6,000 employees, we continuously strive for excellence in the submarine enterprise, which results in sound and reliable production, maintenance and innovation of our products. Our engineers and technicians work continuously in the field of submarine design, development, production, and maintenance and we constantly improve ourselves by investing heavily in upgrading our facilities, processes and staff.
We invest in and develop new and future-oriented technologies. The continuous design and construction of submarines allows us to be at the forefront of technology without having to start from scratch when building the new submarines for the Netherlands. Some internationally recognized examples:
These technologies enable us to provide navies with a flexible and versatile submarine that is ready for the most diverse mission profiles.
We offer our customers a design tailored to their requirements with the latest technologies as well as providing the information, tools and support required for sustainment. In this way, we help navies to prepare their industries for sovereignty sustainment. For example, we believe in the concept of "Transfer of Technology" in which we share the latest technological knowledge and expertise with our customers, as we intend to do for the Netherlands.
With the extensive experience in building submarines for customers worldwide, thyssenkrupp Marine Systems is well equipped to offer submarines for the Netherlands with their own unique set of technical specifications, dimensions and options. We are therefore confident to be able to meet the exact requirements of the Royal Netherlands Navy.
