Navantia has signed a service contract with the US Navy for four destroyers, which will be deployed during 2014 and 2015 in the Naval Base of Rota, as part of the BMDl, according to the agreement reached between both governments in 2011 and signed in 2012. The contract includes the maintenance of these units in the periods of immobilization in Rota, and has a duration of one year, plus six optional years.
Navantia's experience in the design, construction and maintenance of the ships, as well as its excellent infrastructure and workforce skill capacity, have been decisive for the adjudication of this contract.
Likewise, the attainment of this contract with the US Navy, with the highest level of requirements, gives Navantia substantial international prestige, guaranteeing its leading position in naval military construction.
