NDSQ to Build Vessels for Qatar Armed Forces

Nakilat Damen Shipyards Qatar (NDSQ) has signed two Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) worth approx. $851 million to build seven vessels for Qatar Armed Forces.

The MoUs were signed on Thursday 27th March during the DIMDEX event at Qatar National Convention Center (QNCC). Once all the necessary agreements are finalized, the vessels mentioned in the MoUs will be constructed in the State of Qatar by NDSQ at its shipbuilding facility at Erhama Bin Jaber Al Jalahma Shipyard in Ras Laffan.

The MoUs signed by NDSQ and Qatar Armed Forces concern six 50m-long axe-bow high-speed patrol vessels and one 52m-long diving support vessel for the Qatar Armed Forces.

All vessels are highly sophisticated state-of-the-art naval ships built based on proven designs providing unparalleled seaworthiness. The diving support vessel includes decompression capabilities. A large Integrated Logistic Support package is also mentioned in the MoUs.
