A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed by the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine and the Ministry of Defense of the Kingdom of Denmark on cooperation in developing and strengthening Ukraine's maritime potential. The signing took place during the official visit of the Minister of Defense of Denmark Trine Bramsen to Ukraine.


In particular, a project for the construction of multi-purpose vessels is planned within the framework of the Memorandum. Production will be fully localized in Ukraine, and more than 50% of orders will be fulfilled by Ukrainian companies.

Ukraine has great potential for the development of shipbuilding - it is access to the largest navigable rivers in Eastern Europe, and formed port infrastructure, and most importantly - the existing shipbuilding capacity.

The project will be implemented with the Government of Denmark and the Danish Export Credit Agency (EKF). Danish companies will design the vessels according to the customer's requirements.
