Naval Group, a global leader in naval defense and marine renewable energy, has reached a significant milestone in its ongoing partnership with Greece.

In a grand ceremony at their shipyard in Lorient, France, they proudly unveiled the first Belharra-class medium-sized frigate for the Hellenic Navy.

This monumental development is part of a crucial contract initiated in September 2021, aimed at providing Greece with three state-of-the-art warships to enhance its maritime capabilities, support national security, and contribute to European Union (EU) defense efforts.

As part of this contract, the Hellenic Navy will receive the HS Kimon, a powerful frigate with an array of advanced features and weaponry. The arrival of these frigates is eagerly anticipated, as they will significantly bolster the Hellenic Navy’s capabilities.
