Key developments continue in Germany's F 125 frigate programme

FGS Baden-Wuerttemberg (F222)The German Navy has christened its second F 125 frigate, the next phase in a number of key recent developments in the frigate programme.

Nordrhein-Westfalen (F 223) was christened by TKMS on 16 April at the Blohm + Voss shipyard in Hamburg.

In June 2007 under a EUR2 billion (USD2.25 billion) contract, Germany ordered four F 125 frigates from the ARGE F 125 industry consortium, consisting of TKMS and Lürssen Werft Shipyard.
