Hatteland Display Chosen for UAE Corvettes

Monday, April 06, 2009

Hatteland Display will supply 19 inch Series 1 displays for the MTU engine consoles aboard six new high speed corvettes being built for the UAE. The Baynunah Class Multipurpose Missile Corvettes are sophisticated 236 ft vessels that have a cruising speed of 15 knts and can reach a maximum speed of over 30 knts, which is achieved through the use of four MTU 12V595 TE90 engines.

The Series 1 family of displays range from 10 to 27 inches (widescreen) and are used in automation and navigation systems aboard naval and commercial vessels. MTU supplies over 70 navies worldwide and is a major supplier of engines for Corvettes and Frigates. Five of the six new Corvettes, which are named after the Baynunah region of Abu Dhabi, are being built by the prime contractor Abu Dhabi Ship Building, while one is under construction at major contractor Constructions Mecaniques de Normandie's shipyard in Cherbourg, France. The French built vessel is due for launch in summer 2009 and the other vessels are under construction in Abu Dhabi.
