The Turkish Navy’s Preveze-class submarine mid-life modernisation mission (Preveze-YÖM) has reached a brand new milestone. These trials have been carried out earlier than the completion of the design levels as per the contract. The ocean acceptance trials of the inertial navigation system, CTD probes, chilled water system and static inverters have been concluded as a part of the mission, which is being accomplished beneath the steerage of the Presidency of Defence Industries (SSB). SBB additionally authorized the mission’s vital design part. In the meantime, the Turkish Navy labored on the completion of the platform incorporation of the MÜREN fight administration system.

The Preveze-Class Submarines Mid-Life Modernisation Venture (PMMP) contains the improve of 4 Preveze-class submarines, TCG Preveze (S-353), TCG Sakarya (S-354), TCG 18 Mart (S-355) and TCG Anafartalar (S-356). Beneath this improve mission, inertial navigation system, salinity-depth-density measurement system, floating antenna, satellite tv for pc communication mast, assault and navigation periscope system shall be acquired by SBB. Improve work is being carried out by STM-ASELSAN-HAVELSAN, in collaboration with ASFAT. The procurement actions can even cowl cooled water system, emergency underwater communication system, static converter and air freshening system.

Within the modernisation course of, it’s deliberate to hold out the procurement actions of Inertial Navigation System, Salinity-Depth-Density Measurement System, Floating Antenna, Satellite tv for pc Communication Mast, Assault and Navigation Periscope System, Emergency Underwater Communication System, Cooled Water System, Static Converter and Air Freshening System by us, as STM. Along with procurement actions, platform integration actions of all merchandise equipped by STM-ASELSAN-HAVELSAN and ASFAT Partnership are additionally carried out by us.

The biggest operator of the Kind 209 is the Turkish Navy which operates six Kind 209/1200 submarines (commissioned between 1976 and 1989) and eight Kind 209/1400 submarines (commissioned between 1994 and 2007). At current, the Turkish Navy can be the biggest operator of German designed submarines on the planet. The Kind 209 is a category of diesel-electric assault submarine developed completely for export by Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft of Germany.The category is completely designed for export market. Regardless of not being operated by the German Navy, 5 variants of the category (209/1100, 209/1200, 209/1300, 209/1400 and 209/1500) have been efficiently exported to 13 international locations, with 61 submarines being constructed and commissioned between 1971 and 2008.
