The Mohammed VI Frigate during sea trials
The French FREMM programme calls for 12 ships – 11 for the French Navy and one for the Royal Moroccan Navy.
DCNS delivered the Aquitaine, the first FREMM multimission frigate, to the French Navy in November 2012.
In accordance the contractual provisions, the second-of-type is scheduled for delivery to the Royal Moroccan Navy by the end of this year. The ship will be named the Mohammed VI.
DCNS is currently working on four FREMM frigates at different stages of completion:
- third-of-type FREMM frigate Normandie will begin sea trials later this year and is scheduled for delivery to the French Navy in 2014
- fourth-of-type FREMM frigate Provence is approaching completion and scheduled to be floated out of her building dock later this year
- the fifth and sixth of type are at earlier stages of construction.
