Algeria Adds New MCMV to Fleet Modernisation
Algeria has signed a contract for a new mine countermeasures vessel (MCMV), with an option for a
second, as it continues a major fleet modernisation effort.
As part of its undertaking the country has introduced a new landing platform dock (LPD) vessel from
Italy's Fincantieri, and ordered two frigates from Germany's ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems and
corvettes from China. The corvettes are to be outfitted with Western combat systems locally.
Italy's Intermarine was reported to be in negotiations with Algeria regarding the MCMV in the second
half of 2013, with senior officials of holding company Immsi indicating that a contract was close to
being finalised. Intermarine revealed at Euronaval 2014 in Paris that it had started work on an MCMV
for an unidentified customer. Several industry sources - speaking to IHS Jane's on condition of
anonymity - have since confirmed the vessel is for Algeria.
Orizzonte Sistemi Navali is acting as prime contractor for the programme, with Intermarine carrying out
most of the work as subcontractor. Construction commenced at Intermarine in early 2014, with launch
expected in mid-2015 and delivery estimated for around 2017. Negotiations for the second vessel are
understood to be ongoing.
The ship is expected to be based on the monocoque single-skin glass-reinforced plastic 52 m hull that
has provided the basis for many Intermarine MCMVs. It will, however, feature an updated interior
layout as applied to the Katanpää-class vessels built recently for the Finnish Navy. System details and
main suppliers have yet to be confirmed.
