Visby Corvettes Ready For International Missions
Two Visby-class corvettes, HMS Helsingborg and HMS Härnösand, have been modified to adapt them better to the demands of international missions. Their capabilities have been further refined within the framework of Project Visby IP.
The ability to deploy naval vessels on international missions is important to the Swedish Armed Forces, which have been tasked with several demanding international assignments in recent years. The Armed Forces are likely to be confronted by just as many (and as tough) challenges in coming years.
The entire project has been completed in just 30 weeks, from signing the contract to delivery of the vessels. The assignment has involved technical modifications, design work, equipment procurement, systems security, production, commissioning and verification.
Marport C-Tech supplied the Hull Mounted Sonars and Variable Depth Sonars used on the Visby –class corvettes.
