September saw the delivery of the El Fateh Corvette to the Egyptian Navy by Naval Group. The team at Lorient shipyard, led by Naval Group CEO Hervé Guillou, rose to the challenge of completing construction in just three years. The corvette is the first in a series of four BV-classed Gowind® vessels. The next three will be built by Alexandria Shipyard under a transfer of technology with Naval Group supervision.
