DCNS floated the FREMM multi-mission frigate Languedoc in Lorient, France ordered by OCCAri on behalf of the French Directorate General and the French Navy on12 July 2014.

“Over the coming months, the Group’s teams alongside the teams of its subcontractors will pursue the assembly and integration of the different systems on the FREMM Languedoc” explains Anne Bianchi, Director of the FREMM Program at DCNS.

“The next major step will be the installation of the mast structures with the vessel’s main sensors (radars, antennas, cameras, radar jammers). They will then be integrated into the latest-generation SETIS combat management system, developed by the Group.”

DCNS started the construction of the FREMM Languedoc, in September 2011. This new-generation frigate will be operated by a crew half the number required for frigates of the earlier generation. The FREMM is capable of executing anti-aircraft as well as anti-surface and anti-submarine warfare missions.

The first multi-mission FREMM frigate, the Aquitaine, built for the French Navy, was accepted by OCCAr on 23 November 2012. The second FREMM frigate, the Normandie, will be delivered at the end of 2014.

The FREMM program represents twelve units, with eleven for the French Navy and one for the Royal Moroccan Navy.  DCNS is currently building five other multi-mission frigates in Lorient, all at different stages of advancement. Two other FREMMs are currently under construction.
