Ecuador has selected the MPV70 MKII design of Germany’s Fassmer for the Ecuadorian Navy’s new Multipurpose Combat Vessel program. The MPV70 MKII is a part of the family of new Fassmer naval vessels focusing on the combination of support and patrol roles. It provides fleet-level asset optimization as well as enhanced capabilities for disaster relief and humanitarian aid. So far, a single ship has been ordered. The ship will be built by Ecuador’s ASTINAVE EP in Guayaquil with design, engineering, technical support and material packages from Fassmer.
