The first SIGMA frigate was transferred to the Royal Moroccan Navy on 10th September 2011.

The second 98 meters long SIGMA class frigate is scheduled to be delivered in February 2012 while the third frigate is still under construction at the Damen yard in Vlissingen and is scheduled for Sea Acceptance Trials in May 2012.
