On 22 February 2022, Naval Group started the first sea trials of the FREMM DA LORRAINE, the company writes in a press release. LORRAINE is the eighth FREMM to be delivered to the French Navy and second with enhanced air defence capabilities (FREMM DA) and has been built on order to the Organisation for Joint Armament Cooperation (OCCAR), on behalf of the French Procurement Agency (DGA) and the French Navy. The initial sea trials are expected to enable the performance of the ship’s propulsion and navigation systems to be tested. Several campaigns will then be carried out to test all the systems. FREMM DA LORRAINE will then be delivered by the end of the year.
