Naval Group and Saudi Arabia, a 30-year history
Naval Group has been present in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for 30 years. With its subsidiary based in the Kingdom, Naval Group is working to improve the Saudi fleet’s availability.
Naval Group is keen to adapt its offer to Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 policy to develop further cooperation with local partners, to procure assistance and to transfer know-how through its subsidiary Naval Group Arabia.
A key milestone was completed with the signing in October 2015 of an agreement with the King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST), to enhance research and development partnerships dedicated to the naval and maritime sectors.
