The 25th Euronaval exhibition closed its doors on Friday 21st October in Paris-Le Bourget with very positive results for all those involved in the naval sector; industrialists, delegations, international organisation, visitors and journalists. Created in 1968 , this biennial event continues to confirm its position as world leader of naval defence exhibitions, with again this year a particularly promising offer.

Euronaval director Hugues d'Argentré :

“Despite the particularly demanding security requirements implemented this year, participation levels are comparable to those of the last edition, and according to the exhibitors themselves, there is progression in terms of the quality of professional visitors. On the whole the results are highly positive for this 25th edition, with the presence of close to 130 official delegations from 65 countries and more than 20 chiefs of staff from foreign Navies. One of its kind in the naval defence sector, this exhibition displaying vessels, submarines and naval equipment has established its position as leader with decision makers and contractors in this dynamic sector. In 2016, all the « Majors » were present!”


For the 2016 edition, 129 delegations were welcomed at the exhibition, including 89 foreign military delegations representing 64 coutnries on the 5 continents. Among the French and European delegations, there were ministerial and parliametary delegations, as well as representatives from the Court of Auditors, the MEDEF, CNI, the Military School, IHEDN (Institute of Advanced Studies in National Defence)…

Announcement by the Minister of Defence

On Tuesday 18th October, at the Ministry of Defence stand, the Minister of Defence Jean-Yves Le Drian chose Euronaval to reveal the model of the future intermediate-size frigates (FTI) made in France. The launch of the FTI programme was decided upon in mid-2015 on the occasion of the legislation update for military programming. The objective is ambitious, as delivery of the first frigate is set for 2023. With a tonnage of 4,200 tonnes, the FTI will be implemented by a crew of 125 staff. For 2030, these 5 new first-line frigates will complement the French Navy's order of battle of the 8 multimission frigates (FREMM) and the 2 Horizon-type air defence frigates.
