Three Damen SIGMA-Class Frigates
The three SIGMA-class frigates for the Royal Moroccan Navy have been designed according to Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding’s revolutionary Ship Integrated Geometrical Modularity Approach (SIGMA) and are a further development of the SIGMA-corvettes for the Moroccan Navy. The SIGMA approach applies modularity in many areas, which offers the user great flexibility at reduced costs.
The frigates are also known as “FMMM”, which stands for Frégates Multi-Missions Marocaines. The first frigate is longer than numbers two and three, to accommodate a VIP-crew and command facilities. The vessels are built according to Lloyds Register Class for unrestricted service and are enhanced by proven naval principles.
