Fincantieri announced Tuesday that it has delivered the frigate Carabiniere within the international Italian-French program to Italian Navy.

The frigate is the fourth vessel of the FREMM program Multi Mission European Frigates.  Orizzonte Sistemi Navali (51% Fincantieri and 49% Finmeccanica) is the Italian prime contractor for the FREMM program, which has planned to build 10 units, all already ordered.

“Carabiniere” is the fourth FREMM unit which Fincantieri builds and delivers to the Italian Navy completed with a combat system (the third with the ASW – Anti Submarine Warfare configuration), that has ability of silent navigation speed in significant anti-submarine hunting.

The FREMM frigates are 144 meters long and displace at full load of approximately 6,700 tonnes and they are designed to reach a maximum speed of 27 knots. The frigates also can accommodate 200 people (crew and staff). The vessels are able to always guarantee a high degree of flexibility and to operate in a wide range of scenarios and tactical situations.

The program ensures the fleet renewal needs of the Italian Navy frigates of the Lupo (retired in 2003) and Maestrale (close to reaching its operational life limit) classes. It is coordinated by OCCAR, the Organisation for Joint Armament Cooperation.
