    Last Sunday, 12th November, the programme Fantástico, from Globo TV, featured a report about the work being developed by the Brazilian Navy for the construction of the first national submarine powered by nuclear energy.

    Reporter Carlos de Lannoy visited the Itaguaí Naval Complex, in the metropolitan region of Rio de Janeiro, where he interviewed military personnel responsible for PROSUB – the Submarine Development Program and members of ICN (Itaguaí Construções Navais), a partnership between Novonor and the French Naval Group, which is leading the construction of four conventional submarines and one nuclear-powered submarine.

    The journalist had the opportunity to explore the interior of “Riachuelo”, the first of the new generation of conventional submarines, already delivered and in operation. The report also highlighted the work of the teams that take turns testing and building the “Humaitá”, “Tonelero” and “Angostura”, the other conventional submarines planned in the program.

    OEC is the company responsible for building the infrastructure necessary to enable the manufacturing, assembly, and maintenance of the submarines. To check out the full report, click here.
