Thyssenkrupp Marine has been selected to provide replacement battery monitoring equipment for German class 212A submarines.
Thyssenkrupp Marine has been selected to provide replacement battery monitoring equipment for four Type 212A submarines by the Federal Office for Equipment, Technology and In-Service Support of the Bundeswehr.
The amount of the contract was not disclosed.
This is the only offer received for the contract and the contract notice has not been published.
Indeed, the provision of services requires detailed knowledge of the design documents, to which only Thyssenkrupp Marine has access.
If the contract was awarded to another company, it may endanger the life of the crew due to a lack of technical knowledge of the design.
The contract will likely be subcontracted by Thyssenkrupp Marine, which will provide the required technical information.
According to Shephard Defense Insight, the Type 212A was designed with an X-shaped rudder for better shallow water maneuvering. The rudder is optimized for operations in the Baltic Sea and the Mediterranean Sea.
The 212 are equipped with an MSI-91 combat system and have 11 tactical data links, the FL 1800U suite for electronic warfare, the TAU 2000 torpedo countermeasures system and are equipped with the DM2A4 torpedo.
