At Fincantieri the maintenance program of the US Navy's “Avenger” fleet

(To Fincantieri)

Fincantieri Marine Systems North America (FMSNA), a company specialized in the marketing of naval systems, services and components headed by the American subsidiary Fincantieri Marine Group (FMG), has been awarded the maintenance contract for the US Navy's "Avenger" class minesweeper units .

The program has a combined value of over $ 78 million. Thanks to the after-sales services tool, Fincantieri will further retain a top-tier customer such as the US Navy, allowing it to keep its ships running at a high level of performance. The Group is also engaged in the construction of the US Navy of tomorrow, with the “Constellation” class of frigates.

The US Navy's “Avenger” class fleet is made up of 8 ships, based in Bahrain and Japan, all equipped with Isotta Fraschini Motori diesel engines, also a subsidiary of Fincantieri, of which the FMSNA technicians are experts. The units, in fact, were built in Wisconsin, in Marinette and Sturgeon Bay, where today Fincantieri owns some of the largest and most active factories in the Great Lakes region.

Fincantieri Marine Systems recently opened a repair yard in Jacksonville, Florida to support the US Navy's Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) fleet, built by Fincantieri in Marinette, and other units based at nearby Mayport Naval Station.
