    Primer corte de acero para submarino Scorpene brasileño

    First Steel Cut for Brazilian Submarine Programme

    DCNS begins work on first or four Brazilian conventional submarines

    09:15 GMT, June 2, 2010 | Last week, the French naval manufacturer DCNS has begun with the work on the first conventional attack submarine for the Brazilian Navy by celebrating the first steel cut at a ceremony at the company’s Cherbourg centre. In an effort to modernise the South American country’s submarine fleet, DCNS had been awarded a major contracts package by the Brazilian Navy back in December 2008 for the design and construction of four conventional-propulsion submarines under a technology transfer agreement, the technical assistance for the design and construction of the non-nuclear part of the first Brazilian nuclear-powered submarine, and the support services for the construction of a naval base and a shipyard in Itaguai (Rio de Janeiro state). The order is DCNS’ biggest contract ever for an international customer and will be performed by a Joint Venture, established in co-operation with the French company’s Brazilian partner Odebrecht.

    Based upon the Scorpene-class submarines and incorporating the specific requirements of the Brazilian Navy, the submarines will represent a new, enlarged class, named SSK. The first boat of this new class is scheduled to enter active service in 2017. All four submarines use conventional or diesel-electric propulsion and will be manned by a crew of between 30 and 45 submariners. For a length overall of 75 meters the design offers a surface displacement of less than 2,000 tons.

    Pierre Quinchon, head of DCNS's Submarine division said on the occasion of the steel-cut ceremony in Cherbourg, where the forward part of the boat will be built: “This programme confirms the Group’s expertise in setting up innovative partnerships based on well-managed technology transfers in favour of international client navies. We are proud to offer Brazil the opportunity to acquire advanced naval technologies. The design and construction of these submarines represent a significant workload for both DCNS and the Brazilian naval shipbuilding industry, beginning with our benchmark partner Odebrecht.”

    With a contract value of $9.3 billion for the entire naval contracts package, reportedly clinched at the President’s level between Nicolas Sarkozy and Ignacio Lula da Silva and largely financed by loans totalling €6.1 billion extended by a pool of French banks, it gives DCNS a significant stand in South America. DCNS will act as prime contractor for the four conventional-propulsion submarines to be built by the Joint Venture. In the further process of the co-operation, DCNS will provide design assistance under the Brazilian Navy’s design authority - for the non-nuclear part of the Navy‘s first nuclear submarine which will equally be built by the Joint Venture. The entire nuclear power plant will be designed and built in Brazil, based upon an $880 million investment programme.

    The first steel cut marks the start of the industrial production phase of the programme. It will be followed by the arrival of some 130 Brazilian engineers and technicians that will participate in the technology transfer programme for the construction of those submarines in Brazil.

      Brasil e submarinos

      O Brasil é um país desarmado e quem está nessa situação estará sempre sujeito a chantagens dos países melhor armados, particularmente daqueles que possuem armas atómicas.

      Agora com a compra dos Scorpene e do submarino atómico (que entendo será construído no Brasil) e dos aviões franceses se inicía um tímido programa de atualização do arsenal brasileiro.

      A título de comparação, se o Brasil gastasse em armas na mesma proporção que o Chile faz, estaria se aparelhando com 40 submarinos, 400 caças de última geração e uns 2000 tanques.
