Australian submarine tender narrows to Japanese and French bids, Germans lose ground-sources
Citat:The competition for a A$50 billion ($34.55 billion) contract to build Australia's next submarine fleet is narrowing to a race between Japan and France as a bid from Germany's ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems (TKAG.DE) (TKMS) loses ground over technical concerns, multiple sources said.
Australci su otvorili tender za nove podmornice, oko $34.55 miljardi dolara.
Citat:TKMS is proposing to scale up its 2,000-tonne Type 214 class vessel, while Japan is offering a variant of its 4,000-tonne Soryu boats made by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (7011.T) and Kawasaki Heavy Industries (7012.T).
France's state-controlled naval contractor DCNS has proposed a diesel-electric version of its 5,000-tonne Barracuda nuclear-powered submarine.
Prijavili se TKMS-Nemci sa 2,000 tona Type 214, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries sa 4,000-tona Soryu i DCNS-Francuzi sa dizel verzijom Baraccuda podmornicom.
Citat:Japan was slow to commit to build all vessels at South Australian shipyards, a politically significant pledge that both DCNS and TKMS made quickly.
At the same time, DCNS and TKMS pledged to share sensitive technology with the Australian government and promised packages of economic incentives.
Japan je praktično bez iskustva, šta je izvoz vojne tehnologije, Nemci i Francuzi nude prenos tehnologije i radna mesta.
