The Type 26 Frigate built for the UK Royal Navy, is a 21st century warship that will undertake the Royal Navy’s three core roles: war fighting, maritime security, and international engagement on the world stage.
“We are very proud and honored that we have been selected as whole ship pump integrator on board the new Type 26 Frigate”, says Henrik Sørensen, CEO at DESMI A/S.
“Our team has been working very closely together with the designers and the project team of Type 26 and together we have found the best solution making sure the ship can operate to its very best with our pump solutions and equipment for naval applications on board”.
