Navantia Ferrol: first European shipyard with 5G network

Navantia Ferrol: first European shipyard with 5G network

  3/25/2021

The shipyard that Navantia, the Global Partner of FEINDEF 2021, has in Ferrol is the first in Europe to have a 5G network infrastructure, both for the repair and construction of ships.

This initiative has been possible thanks to the collaboration of such important companies as Telefónica España, Ericsson, Cinfo and Idronia, in charge of applying resources based on this technology.

It is, therefore, a public-private collaboration collected within the framework of the first call for grants to promote the implementation of 5G granted by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation through Red.es and thanks to Feder funds.

The implementation of this technology will allow the Ferrol shipyard to process information in real time with very low latency. The three solutions will allow remote technical assistance through augmented reality, the virtual visualization of parts and the assembly of blocks that will allow the construction of ships in a modular way.
