According to Le Marin, the information was made official, Monday, August 24, by the French shipyard's management team during a staff meeting.

Plascoa, the military and security branch of Couach, enjoys a good reputation in the Middle East with vessels designed to sustain extreme temperatures in the summer: The shipyard already delivered over 60 naval vessels to KSA between 2001 and 2005, and more recently, it has delivered two patrol boats to the Yemen Coast Guard.

The subcontract awarded by Lürssen is linked to the large contract awarded by KSA Ministry of Interior estimated at 1.4 billion Euros for over 100 vessels, first rumored in the German press in Fenruary last year.

According to Le Marin, Couach will be in charge of the "Interceptor" part of the contract from A to Z: They will design, build and deliver the vessels. The interceptor design will be based on a 15-meters interceptor already delivered to KSA.
