Koninklijke Ten Cate NV : TenCate Books Asian Order For Advanced Naval Armour Systems

ALMELO, Netherlands, Sept. 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
TenCate Advanced Armour has booked a three year contract with a Singapore-based
shipyard to design, develop and manufacture lightweight ballistic protection for
crew and mission critical equipment on a number of large maritime vessels for a
Middle Eastern end-user, ensuring increased survivability for the crew on board
the vessels without impairing speed or performance. With this new order among a
number of other recent commercial successes TenCate Advanced Armour further
strengthens its position in the EMEA and APAC maritime markets. The amount of
the order will not be published.

At the beginning of 2012 TenCate Advanced Armour opened a new marketing and
sales office in Singapore and has since then been validated with new orders
coming in from Asian shipyards and Asian vehicle manufacturers. Currently, there
is substantial growth in this maritime market with considerable new orders for a
wide variety of armour solutions for all maritime platforms including large
patrol vessels, crew boats, raiding craft and Rigid Hull Inflatable Boats.

'Over the years, TenCate Advanced Armour has gained much experience from
maritime projects in Europe and we apply this experience to a growing number of
projects in Asia Pacific now. The TenCate Advanced Armour team in Singapore
offers fully engineered and proven solutions and they understand the local
requirements in Asia Pacific' says Steen Tanderup, Managing Director of TenCate
Advanced Armour EMEA & APAC. 'We are globally leading in the design and
production of lightweight armour solutions for a wide range of vehicles, from
light patrol vehicles to heavy transport vehicles and main battle tanks, as well
as for naval vessels, aircraft and personnel. TenCate Advanced Armour also
