Navantia has announced that it will invest a total of 43 million euros in the Puerto Real (Cádiz) shipyard to increase its competitiveness and optimize its facilities for the shipbuilding and offshore wind energy programs that will begin in the coming months. The company has indicated in a statement that this investment will soon be approved by the State Company for Industrial Participations (SEPI), as reported this Friday by the Minister of Finance and Public Function, María Jesús Montero.

Specifically, the flat block workshop will be modernized with an automated flat panel manufacturing line that will save quality and efficiency in the projects in which the shipyard participates, both those for offshore wind energy and shipbuilding: corvettes, BAM -IS and Fleet Solid Support (FSS) program for the United Kingdom.

The one in Puerto Real “will be destroyed in one of the most advanced shipyards of its kind and will have an important community with the other two Navantia shipyards that build surface ships, those in Ferrol (A Coruña) and San Fernando (Cádiz), which which will make it possible to adopt similar construction solutions and advance in the transformation of Navantia towards Shipyard 4.0”, explains the note.

This project “adds to those that are underway in other Navantia production centers, such as the digital block factory to be built in Ferrol, the flat panel workshop in San Fernando and the adaptation of Fene to meet the demand for structures for offshore wind power. In Puerto Real, the shipbuilding and offshore wind energy programs ensure full occupancy of the shipyard from 2025, with peaks of more than 2,000 jobs including those of collaborating industries.
