German Naval Yards forms partnership for German Navy tender bid

German Naval Yards (GNYK) has joined with ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems (TKMS) to bid on a tender from the German Navy for the construction of a news series of MKS180 ships.

GNYK is the only remaining German main contractor in the EU-wide tender.
