“We are delighted that we are now entering the final phase,” says Jörg Herwig, Managing Director of GERMAN NAVAL YARDS KIEL. “We are extremely motivated and are working flat out to make the best possible offer for the German Navy and our soldiers. The project is of immense importance for German industry, because the decision to award the contract for the MKS 180 also determines whether the German naval industry can remain the technology leader in surface shipbuilding in the long term.”
