DESIGNED FOR ENHANCED SURVIVABILITY
Precisely customisable to your requirements, NVL Corvettes can be constructed to comply with national or classification society naval rules. We build sturdy and resilient ships using steel hulls that incorporate tested and proven hull forms. These are combined with steel or aluminium superstructures, depending on specific design priorities. Displacements range from 600 to 2,500 tonnes whilst lengths are between 60 and 120 metres.
We pay particular attention to achieving high levels of survivability. Integration of NBC protection and provision of full redundancy for critical ship systems are important design priorities. Stability, another critical consideration, is maintained even in extreme situations. We also focus on signature reduction to mitigate a broad spectrum of emissions.
Our corvettes are designed to be agile and manoeuvrable. Multiple diesel engines are linked to twin shaft lines fitted with controllable pitch propellers. This arrangement permits fuel-efficient, single-shaft operation. Economy can be further enhanced by optional electrical propulsion. Maximum range is up to 10,000 nautical miles whilst endurance can extend to 30 days. Extensive automation and high standards of accommodation help to maintain crew efficiency, even during lengthy deployments.
