Combat supply ship "CSS Cantabria"
New ship concept
Navantia has designed a new type of Combat Supply Ship (CSS), integrating military and civilian concepts. It has a greater capacity to supply liquids and solids (5 stations), has a flight deck and hangar and can also act as a hospital ship and to combat marine pollution.
Its modern combat system SCOMBA, of national production, facilitates its integration into a Naval Force and its Integrated Platform Control System, 100% Spanish development and high degree of automation, allows to reduce the needs of personnel to operate the ship.
Commitment to the environment
This vessel is a clean and ecological product (Green Ship) and meets all the MARPOL-SOLAS criteria of international agreements, being certified by the LLOYD’S REGISTER GROUP Classification Society for the first time in Naval Military construction.
It should be noted its double hull in the area of cargo tanks, a wastewater treatment plant, water-oil separators and equipment necessary for the treatment of garbage (crusher, compactor and incinerator).
Reinforcing the national Navy
The Council of Ministers authorized in May 2005 the contract for the construction of CSS Cantabria. Two years later it was put on the stand and on July 21, 2008 it was launched in Puerto Real. The delivery of the Cantabria to the Navy took place on July 29, 2010 at the Naval Base of Rota.
Due to its size, it is the second largest ship in the Spanish Navy and the first of its kind to have a double hull in the fuel storage area, complying with all environmental regulations and regulations for merchant ships.
