Friday, June 01, 2007
Navantia has commissioned on May 21, 2007, in the Ferrol shipyard, the F-311 frigate, Roald Amundsen to the Royal Norwegian Navy, presided by the Norwegian Chief of Navy, Admiral Jan E. Finseth, and the President of Navantia, Juan Pedro Gómez Jaén. The delivery protocol has been signed by the Director of the shipyard, Ángel Recamán, and the Director of NDLO, General Trond Karlsen. Previous to the start of the ceremony, a minute of silence has been kept, as honor in memory of 4 workers died on board the frigate on May 11, 2005, while preparing it for the launching.

After the signature of the protocol and the change of flags, the Chief of Navy has inspected the crew, and the crew has marched on board. Afterwards the guests have had the opportunity to go on board the Roald Amundsen. The F-311 frigate is the second of the five F-310 frigates contracted by the Royal Norwegian Navy to Navantia.
