German steelmaker ThyssenKrupp is to provide the Algerian navy
with two frigates.
The Essen-based manufacturer's marine division will supply the
North African country's naval service with two Meko A200
warships, according to Algerian press reports.
The two frigates are worth a combined €400 million ($523
million) and will be delivery this year.
ThyssenKrupp told Metal Bulletin on Tuesday April 10 that it
would not comment further on the order.
The deal, according to the reports, is the outcome of
negotiations with the Algerian ministry of defence, which is
attempting to modernise its naval forces.
