Baliño, from the Emenasa Group, will supply the complete lines of axes and new propellers to the Belgian-Dutch MCMV program
The proposal of the company will provide with robust equipment to the 12 Mine Fighters (MCMV) for the Belgian Navy and the Royal Netherlands Navy
Naval Group and Kership, a joint venture between Piriou and Naval Group, have selected the proposal and design of Baliño to supply the new lines of tail shafts and main propellers for the 12 Fighter Ships (MCMV) for the Belgian Navy and the Royal Netherlands Navy.
The new MCMV vessels will have robust state-of-the-art equipment to combat several threats such as mines, piracy, terrorism and perform missions such as interdiction of maritime traffic and surveillance of territorial waters. These vessels equipped with drone systems are paramount to the future operations of the Belgian and Dutch Navy to protect maritime routes and contribute to safer seas around the world.
The main axle lines and components have been designed by BALIÑO and will be produced at the factory in Vigo (Spain). In addition, the propellers, designed by VICUS DT engineering company of the Emenasa Group, will be merged into FUNDIVISA in Vilagarcía de Arousa (Spain), a company that also belongs to the Group. Thanks to the experience of BALIÑO and VICUS DT and its modern facilities, we have met all the requirements of Naval Group and Kership.
Baliño with more than 60 years of experience in high-end propulsion systems for the naval and military industry has supplied more than a thousand propulsion systems throughout the world. "We are proud to equip the 12 ships of the Belgian and Dutch Navies with our propulsion system, this contract is an additional strategic opportunity for Baliño and the entire Emenasa Group to be part of this important European project and consolidate our position in the market." Carlos Alonso, General Director of the Emenasa Group
