EMGEPRON signs contract with Águas Azuis Consortium

The Naval Projects Management Company (EMGEPRON) signed a contract with the Águas Azuis Consortium, comprising the following companies: Thyssenkrupp Marine Systems, Embraer Defense & Security and Atech, to manage the construction of 4 (four) “Tamandaré” Class frigates, which make part of one of the Strategic Programs of the Brazilian Navy (MB).

The Program aims to modernize the Naval Power Nucleus to guarantee the country's sovereignty and encourage the growth of the National Defense Industry. The ships will control Brazilian jurisdictional waters and the exclusive economic zone, which totals more than 4.5 million square kilometers and is known as "Blue Amazon", including the pre-salt fields. In addition, they will carry out search, rescue, peacekeeping and humanitarian aid operations.



The Naval Project Management Company (EMGEPRON) will present an autonomous vessel project during Operation MINEX-2023, which will take place from October 23rd to 27th.

The ceremony, traditionally called “Keel Laying”, which marks the ship construction process, will begin the materialization of the project for the future Polar Ship “Almirante Saldanha”.

Com o intuito de promover a atividade de controle interno no âmbito do Ministério da Defesa (MD), no dia 04 de outubro foi realizada, em Brasília-DF, a quinta edição do Simpósio Conjunto de Controle Interno do MD.
