In April 2014, the two companies signed a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding on the acquisition of the Swedish shipyard, which has generated substantial losses for years. ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions has been pursuing the sale in line with the Swedish government’s publicly stated preference for national naval shipbuilding programs.

ThyssenKrupp is focusing its naval shipbuilding activities in Kiel, Hamburg and Emden. These activities are highly cash generative and contribute reliably to the company’s earnings. With its proprietary air-independent HDW fuel cell propulsion system, ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems is the clear world market leader in the field of non-nuclear submarines.
