The Israeli Navy has recently contracted with Israel Shipyards Limited (ISL) via the Ministry of Defence (MoD) for the supply of a floating dock and a 10-year maintenance support agreement.
The dock allows for greater operational mobility and flexibility in the installation of all Israeli combat systems on the SA'AR 6-class corvettes ass they arrive. It enables adaptation and upgrade of the various vessels to withstand evolving challenges and is designed for the maintenance and repair of the SA'AR 6s and the submarines in Israeli Navy service.
“We welcome this order from the Israeli MoD and Navy to supply out floating dock,” says Eitan Zucker, ISL Managing Director. “This is the optimal solution for their needs, providing both operative mobility and the flexibility to be adapted to the changing needs of the corps. We shall also provide dock support and maintenance services over the next ten years.”
