Fincantieri and C.A.B.I. Cattaneo, an Italian military underwater vehicle manufacturer for Naval Special Forces, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the assessment of commercial and industrial cooperation in the field of underwater vehicles and their integration with larger vessels.
The MoU will allow underwater vehicles to be integrated with Fincantieri surface and underwater vessels, improving the products on offer in the target global markets.
Fincantieri, as the Design Authority, will lead the design, construction, fit-out and setting to work of the main vessels, whilst CABI will assume identical responsibility for the underwater vehicles.
The agreement was signed by Pierroberto Folgiero and Alberto Villa, CEO of Fincantieri and CABI, respectively, overseen by Admiral Enrico Credendino, Chief of the Italian Navy.
