The layout of the bow section of "Jacques Chevallier" took place at the Castellammare di Stabia plant, the first of four LSS (Logistic Support Ship) units ordered from Fincantieri by Chantiers de l'Atlantique as part of the program FLOTLOG (“Flotte logistique”).
The sections will all be built at the Castellammare di Stabia shipyard, with deliveries to Chantiers de l'Atlantique scheduled between 2021 and 2027.
The FLOTLOG program envisages the construction of four logistical support vessels (LSS) for the French Navy by the temporary consortium formed by Chantiers de l'Atlantique and Naval Group as part of the Franco-Italian LSS program led by OCCAR (Organization for the joint armaments cooperation) on behalf of DGA, the French Directorate General for Armaments, and its Italian counterpart NAVARM.
The LSS project, like that of the other units of the multi-year program for the renewal of the fleet of our Navy, is characterized by a very high level of innovation that makes the ship extremely flexible in the different profiles of use and with a high degree of efficiency. .
