DCI has trained the first crew for Tahya Misr FREMM multi-mission frigate and the first two crews for the Gamal Abdel Nasser and Anouar-El-Sadat amphibious assault ships of Egyptian navy.
The DCI group assumed responsibility for training the Egyptian crews of the multi-mission frigate and the two amphibious assault ships acquired by Cairo in 2015. These ships are modern but complex. DCI, in cooperation with the French Navy, supported the Egyptian Navy for several months as the crews underwent familiarization with the ships and learned how to operate them safely.
“This activity further reinforces the close links that exist between DCI and DCNS in training crews for first-rate ships or submarines and which have come into play on several occasions in the past.” DCI Chairman and CEO Jean-Michel Palagos said in a statement today.
