Naval Group is proud to have delivered on Friday 22 September 2017 its first Gowind® 2500 corvette to the Egyptian Navy. The ceremony took place in Lorient in the presence of Admiral Ahmed Khaled, commander in chief of the Egyptian Navy, Hervé Guillou, President and CEO of Naval Group and senior officials of the French Navy and the French armament procurement agency.

A programme conducted in record time
Delivered just 36 months after the order was placed, the corvette ENS ELFATEH will take to the seas on 23 September to sail to its home port in Egypt. This vessel is the first of the four units ordered by the Egyptian Navy.
Hervé Guillou, President and CEO of Naval Group states that: "Naval Group is particularly proud to announce today's delivery of the first Gowind® corvette for Egypt, a strategic client and partner of the group. Design, build and testing have been achieved in a record of 3 years. Naval Group and its industrial partners are mobilized to assist Egypt in the local construction in technology transfer of the three following corvettes. Once again I would like to enhance the exceptional professionalism of the Egyptian crew members and engineers.
