MTG-Dolphin is the first shipyard from Bulgaria ever to exhibit at Euronaval. It is taking the opportunity of being at Le Bourget this week to showcase its new cost-efficient K-90 multi-purpose corvette design.
Configurable for anti-surface, anti-submarine and anti-air warfare roles, the K-90 will be classed for unrestricted navigation by Bureau Veritas, according to the company. In the run up to Euronaval this year the organisers highlighted the expected market growth in the area of acquisition of corvettes, multi-purpose vessels and ocean patrol vessels (OPVs): the K-90 addresses precisely this market segment.
Aimed at navies and maritime security forces operating with limited budgets, the K-90 gives MTG Dolphin a viable product to attract delegates at Euronaval, which gives the company, “an unparalleled opportunity to present robust solutions, to establish contacts with national delegations, and touch base with potential industry partners. Our partnership with leading suppliers and integrators gives us ample ground to offer the K-90 as a competitive and highly capable ship, equipped with cutting-edge armament and systems,” said Svetlin Stoyanov, company CEO. A company of some 700 employees, MTG Dolphin has made significant headway in partnering with companies at every level of the supply chain in recent years. Thales, Leonardo and Diehl Defence, for example, are among the naval systems companies with whom the Bulgarian company has recently inked agreements.
