Astilleros Españoles SA had been created in 1967 by merging of the shipyards of Euskalduna, La Naval de Sestao and Astilleros de Cádiz. In July 2000 it merged with the public naval shipyards, Empresa Nacional Bazán, to form IZAR.[2] In March 2005 Sociedad Estatal de Participaciones Industriales (SEPI) merged the naval wing of IZAR into Navantia.


Navantia, the Spanish shipbuilder, 100% owned by SEPI, the Spanish government industrial holding, is engaged in the design, construction and integration of warships, as well as ship repairs & modernizations.

In March 2016 Navantia was selected as the "preferred bidder" to build two logistics support ships for the Royal Australian Navy.[3]
