+++ tkMS hands over third submarine to Egypt – with GABLER systems on board
Eleven months after its christening in May 2019 “S43” was now officially handed over to the Navy of the Arab Republic of Egypt, represented by Vice Admiral Ahmed Khaled Hassan Said. And this despite the difficult conditions due to the Coronavirus. Dr. Rolf Wirtz, CEO of thyssenkrupp Marine Systems (tkMS), expressed his delight in his address to the project managers. “S43″ is the third of four submarines of the HDW209/1400 mod class for Egypt, which are equipped with innovative and reliable mast systems from our valued partner GABLER.” The program will end with the handover of the fourth submarine in 2021.
