HS KOUNTOURIOTIS - F462

The Hellenic Navy's contribution to SNMG2 is currently provided by KOUNTOURIOTIS, a frigate built in the Netherlands in 1978 and which was transferred from the Dutch Navy to Greece, and recommissioned in 1997. Originally named KORTENAER, her full load displacement is 3,630 tonnes and she is 130.5 metres in length. Powered by COGOG machinery, with two pairs of Rolls Royce Olympus and two pairs of Rolls Royce Tyne gas turbines, she can achieve 30 knots. She completed a major refit of her weapons and other systems in September 2006.
