Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) has been awarded a contract for the construction of three additional Improved Chang Bogo-class submarines for the Indonesian Navy.
The contract has an estimated value of ₩1.16 trillion (US$1.02 billion) and calls for Indonesian state-owned shipbuilder PAL to collaborate with DSME on the construction of the ships, which are known in Indonesia as the Nagapasa-class.
Each submarine will have a displacement of 1,270 tonnes, a length of 61 metres, and a crew of 40.
The contract for three additional submarines was awarded on Friday, April 12. It comes one day after the launch of the future KRI Alugoro, the first Improved Chang Bogo-class/Nagapasa-class submarine to be built entirely in Indonesia.
