The �guas Azuis Consortium, formed by thyssenkrupp Marine Systems, Embraer Defense & Security and Atech, was selected by the Brazilian Navy for the construction of four defense ships in the Tamandaré Corvettes Class Program (CCT) as preferred bidder. The result was announced today (March 28th) and represents a new milestone for the country's maritime defense and naval industry.

With thyssenkrupp Marine Systems' leadership and its naval systems expertise, the �guas Azuis Consortium companies will now form a SPC (Specific Purpose Company) for the implementation phase of the program. Based on a long-term relationship and strong presence in Brazil, companies and their subsidiaries have built a solid national partnership with proven capability to retain technology and ensure its development not only for the CCT Program, but also for future strategic defense projects in the country.

"We are very honored by the Brazilian Navy to entrust us with the mission to build the Tamandaré Corvettes Class. Being part of the CCT Program reinforces our leadership position and the proven technologies we have offered to the naval defense industry around the world for almost two centuries", said Dr. Rolf Wirtz, CEO of thyssenkrupp Marine Systems. "This partnership will bring high-skilled jobs and technology to Brazil, strengthening its defense industry", Wirtz adds.

"In this consortium with thyssenkrupp Marine Systems we offer a solid national partnership model with proven capability to retain the transfer of technology, ensuring its development for future strategic defense projects in Brazil. We have always been confident and the today's result demonstrates that our proposal has truly addressed the operational needs of the Brazilian Navy", said Jackson Schneider, President and CEO of Embraer Defense & Security.

National Sovereignty

With the CCT Program, the Brazilian Navy will expand and modernize its fleet. With four corvettes scheduled for delivery between 2024 and 2028, the Navy will now have new Escort Ships to counter possible threats, ensure the protection of maritime traffic, and control the Brazilian jurisdictional waters and exclusive economic zone, which together form the so-called Blue Amazon, totaling over 4.5 million km�. The escort ships will also play an important role in peace and humanitarian aid missions, in contribution to the Brazilian Diplomacy.
