The European maritime sector, and the naval defence industry in particular, is a strategic asset for Europe.
European naval integrators are the cornerstones of EU strategic autonomy in the naval domain by designing, integrating and building the most complex and expensive assets in service. They provide the platforms that ensure Europe’s maritime Lines of Communication, its global naval force projection and the protection of Europe’s coastlines. Hence, they are key contributors to the defence capabilities of Europe.
European naval yards have proven to be world leaders in functionality, quality and value in terms of exports volume in international naval markets.
