Sea Trial for Italian Navy FREMM Frigate Carabiniere
On 25 June 2014, the Italian FREMM frigate “Carabiniere”
had her first sea going, successfully reaching this important milestone
three months earlier than her predecessor the “Carlo Margottini”.
Carabiniere will be specialize for anti-submarine warfare, like FREMM
Virginio Fasan and Carlo Margottini. The first ship of the class Carlo
Bergamini is in "general purpose" configuration.

The overall level of readiness of the sub-systems
is comparable to that found on the “Carlo Margottini” nine
months ago and has been achieved under considerable pressure, with two
important ship deliveries in December 2013 and February 2014. This clearly
demonstrates the synergy between the Participating States, OCCAR-EA
FREMM Programme Division and Industry.
In July the “Carabiniere” will undergo further sea testing,
and it is planned that the sea trials will be completed by the beginning
of December 2014, at least two months ahead of schedule. The accomplishment
of this will be further proof of the continuous improvement sought and
found in the FREMM production process.
