CT, a strategic partner in Engineering, Production and lifecycle Integrated Logistic Support (ILS) of the S-80 Program.

As a strategic partner in Engineering, Production and lifecycle Integrated Logistic Support (ILS) of the S-80 Program, CT is part of the last issue of "PerfilesIDS" range of publications by Infodefensa, exlusively dedicated to Navantia's "S-80 Plus Program, the World's most Advanced Submarine". The exhaustive monographic is carried out in collaboration with Navantia and with the help of the cabinet of the Spain's Admiral Chief of Staff of the Navy and of the General Director of the Office of Armament and Materiel from the Ministry of Defence. Todate, CT has invested 200,000 engineering hours in developing the S-80 Plus Submarine. Currently, as well as providing engineering support, CT is in charge of managing production and is key in various areas of supporting the S-80 Program lifecycle. 

CT has been one of the main strategic partners in the S-80 Program from the very beginning, with over a decade of experience participating in the project. This successful collaboration has been possible thanks to the know-how provided by the members of our team, who, on average have over 10 years of experience working on different submarine programs since 2000.

The most notable work carried out by CT in for the S-80 Program includes:

Engineering: spanning all of the core disciplines of naval engineering – structures, outfitting, piping, Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) and electrical – CT’s team has carried out activities involved with design, manufacturing and assembly plans, equipment layout, piping and cable routing supports, among others.

Our engineering work has been focused on the submarine’s first construction unit, but currently we are already working on engineering projects for the second construction unit.

Production Management: our work is structured in two main areas: Production Planning, where we are in charge of planning and control the manufacturing orders in the workshop and Subcontracting, where we take charge of the supply chain, manage providers and order requests to the auxiliary industry to cover production needs and the technical specifications of the supplies.

Lifecycle Support: highlighting CT’s experience in this area, and not just in the naval sector, for the S80 Program we are carrying out various activities that include defining maintenance tasks, managing spare parts, providing support for the configuration or identification of critical safety elements (known as SAFETY).
