PESCO: Romania joins European Patrol Corvette project

By Defence Industry Europe

Romania has joined the European Patrol Corvette (EPC) project, becoming the newest member alongside France, Greece, Italy, and Spain. The Romanian flag now appears alongside these countries on the official website of the Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO) of the European Union.

The European Patrol Corvette (EPC) project aims to develop a vessel of approximately 110 meters in length and around 3,000 tons in displacement. It will feature a modular design and the capability for flexible integration of sensors and weapons, allowing it to fulfill a wide range of roles according to user requirements.

Details about Romania’s level of participation have not been disclosed yet. However, the Romanian Navy currently operates a series of aging corvettes and frigates, making the European Patrol Corvette a potential candidate for their replacement.
