The bow section of the 2nd LSS for Chantiers de l’Atlantique launched

- The Group is building the bow sections of the logistic support units as part of an Italian-French program led by OCCAR

The bow section of the second LSS (Logistic Support Ship) unit ordered from Fincantieri by Chantiers de l’Atlantique under the FLOTLOG (“Flotte logistique”) program was launched at the Castellammare di Stabia shipyard.

The FLOTLOG program envisages the construction of four Logistic Support Vessels (LSS) for the French Navy by the temporary consortium formed by Chantiers de l’Atlantique and Naval Group under the French-Italian LSS program led by OCCAR (Organization for the joint armaments cooperation) on behalf of DGA, the French Directorate-General for Armaments, and its Italian counterpart NAVARM.

The LSS project, like that of the other units of the multi-year program for the renewal of the fleet of our Navy, is characterized by a very high level of innovation which makes the ship extremely flexible in the different profiles of use and with a high degree of efficiency .

The LSS combines the ability to transport and transfer liquid cargo (diesel, aviation fuel, fresh water) and solid cargo (spare parts, food and ammunition) to other naval units. The first unit, “Vulcano”, was delivered by Fincantieri to the Navy at the beginning of 2021.
