Fincantieri Delivers Second Falaj 2 Stealth Patrol Vessel For the UAE Navy: The “Salahah”

April 22nd at Fincantieri Muggiano (La Spezia) shipyard there was the delivery ceremony of the "Salahah" patrol vessel for the United Arab Emirates Navy. Her sister ship, the “Ghantut”, was delivered last January together with an "Abu Dhabi Class" corvette. The two patrol vessels – whose names come from an area of the Emirates near Abu Dhabi – were ordered in 2010 within the “Falaj 2” program. The contract provides for an option for a further two vessels in addition to technology transfer to a local shipyard for the construction of further sister ships.
