The Norwegian naval program and the Dutch shipyards interested in building submarines for Norway in 1960

The former Dutch vice admiral Burghard (1) visited accompanied by a representative of the Dutch shipyard Kon.Mij. De Schelde, Vlissingen on 14 October 1960 Oslo, Norway for a meeting with the Norwegian commodore Th. Pettersen Chief Logistics of the Royal Norwegian Navy. Pettersen supplied some global details about the Norwegian naval shipbuilding program. There were some small submarines to be built for coastal defence purposes especially for the North area of Norway. Further more some smaller escort vessels of the Dealey-design with engines, some smaller patrol vessels of around 600 tons and motor torpedo boats of Norwegian design. All ships were to be built in Norway partially financed by the USA.

The German built Norwegian submarine Kobben

For the building of their own submarines investigated the Norwegian navy the existing models abroad.(2) They waited for the results of the trials of the 350 tons German submarine intended to order one if the results were well. (3) Further more were they interested in the French Daphne design which had as objection that the calibre of torpedoes and tubes was larger as other navies used. This could result in problems with supplying. The Swedish submarine had as objection that Sweden was no member of the NATO. The Norwegian naval constructor engineer Heggestad designed a somehow larger submarine. If this design was accepted by Norway were according to Pettersen possibilities for the NEVESBU to produce the necessary drawings. This was the only opportunity for the NEVESBU while the submarines were to be built in Norway using an existing design of which all drawings were already available.

Delivery of parts was another issue. Already spoke Norway with other counties for the manufacturing of the necessary engine room equipment included the Dutch firm Werkspoor.

They have to wait for the decision of the Norwegian cabinet to expect within six weeks. The Naval budget was now discussed in the parliament. In the meantime advices Pettersen Burghard to contact captain B.G. Lislegard, chief of Bureau Ships. Payment for possible orders would consist of military stores like guns, ammunition and clothes and not cash.

Dominican Republic interested in Dutch patrol vessels in 1958-1959

The former Dutch vice-admiral Burghard (1) reported to the Dutch firm N.V. Nederlandsche Vereenigde Scheepsbouw Bureaux (NEVESBU)about his visit to Ciudad Trujillo, Dominican Republic between 27 December 1958 and 9 January 1959.(2) Although the bid of NEVESBU with interest was received by the authorities, was none order for new building given. The problems in Cuba forced the Dominical Republic to acquire as soon as possible three second hand patrol vessels en to fit out their aged patrol vessels with new engines. NEVESBU supplied on 24 January a bid for the building of six ships, three second hand ships and engines of three aged ships. The Royal Netherlands Navy was willing to sell the Batjan (3), Boeroe (4) en Ceram (5) to the Dominican Republic is replacement by new building was allowed.(3) Those three vessels were examined and the conclusion was that they were in a good condition of maintenance. On 2 February was a bid sent for project 219 consisting of 4-1450hp engines for each ship. Nine days later was again an artist impression of the patrol vessel sent. Burghard visited again Ciudad Trujillo between 30 January and 5 February and spoke there admiral Admiral Facundo Esteva and staff members. The Dutch bid was considered to be the cheapest and the best. The Dutch department for economic affairs pointed out that paying with products with coffee, cacao, sugar and so on by the Dominican Republic was somehow problematic. Payment in dollars was however none problem.

In March however it became clear that the Dominican Republic no longer was interested in the Dutch bid. All available (financial) resources were to be used for strengthening/fitting out of the army. Apparently the navy was of secondary interest. The Dutch firm Mantel en Korting was informed that the sale of the frigate Batjan was no longer restricted. On 24 June however was again a meeting with the representative of the Dominican Republic to which a new bid for 3-550 tons with 4 engines (project number 2128) included an artist impression was supplied. On 16 July was after an discussion with the Kon.Mij. De Schelde a bid sent for 3 patrol vessels fitted out with 2 diesel engines (project 2127). Strangely enough was the delivery time for project 217 three months longer.
