Submarine replacement programme Royal Netherlands Navy
In 2019, Royal IHC signed a partnership with Naval Group, that is competing in the tender for the replacement of the Walrus-class submarines. If Naval Group is awarded this contract, Royal IHC will play a substantial role in this project.
Temporary reinforcement Dutch Defence Material Organisation
The Dutch Defence Materiel Organisation (DMO) has a large number of maritime projects that are either being prepared or implemented. As it requires extra capacity for these projects on a temporary basis, Royal IHC’s highly experienced maritime engineers offer support and help to draw up navy vessel requirements.
Maritime Capacity Alliance (MCA)
As a partner of the MCA, IHC Defence was able to contribute with engineering and production in the summer of 2020 to the recovery operation of the crashed NH90 helicopter in the Caribbean. The MCA is a collective of national and international (civil) companies that share knowledge, innovate and collaborate with Defence in the context of the adaptive armed forces.
