TenCate Advanced Armour has booked a three year contract with a Singapore-based shipyard to design, develop and manufacture lightweight ballistic protection for crew and mission critical equipment on a number of large maritime vessels for a Middle Eastern end-user, ensuring increased survivability for the crew on board the vessels without impairing speed or performance. 
 
With this new order among a number of other recent commercial successes TenCate Advanced Armour further strengthens its position in the EMEA and APAC maritime markets. 
 
At the beginning of 2012 TenCate Advanced Armour opened a new marketing and sales office in Singapore and has since then been validated with new orders coming in from Asian shipyards and Asian vehicle manufacturers. 
 
Currently, there is substantial growth in this maritime market with considerable new orders for a wide variety of armour solutions for all maritime platforms including large patrol vessels, crew boats, raiding craft and Rigid Hull Inflatable Boats.
 
'Over the years, TenCate Advanced Armour has gained much experience from maritime projects in Europe and we apply this experience to a growing number of projects in Asia Pacific now. The TenCate Advanced Armour team in Singapore offers fully engineered and proven solutions and they understand the local requirements in Asia Pacific' says Steen Tanderup, Managing Director of TenCate Advanced Armour EMEA & APAC. 
 
'We are globally leading in the design and production of lightweight armour solutions for a wide range of vehicles, from light patrol vehicles to heavy transport vehicles and main battle tanks, as well as for naval vessels, aircraft and personnel. TenCate Advanced Armour also designs and manufactures armour solutions for civil security and policing applications', he adds.
