Reducing the environmental impact of naval ships

FGS AUDAZCourtesy Navantia

As naval expansion continues worldwide, countries are reinforcing their fleets through newbuilds and retrofitting. In 2018, Navantia delivered ships Audaz and Furor to the Spanish navy. These are the fifth and sixth vessels in a series of 93-meter, 2,500-ton Buque de Acción Marítima ships. Lighter than the first four, these MARPOL-compliant vessels feature diesel-alternating engines and sewage treatment plants, lessening their environmental impact.
