Previously, Egypt had exploratory contacts with Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) and Japanese company Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) for the procurement of Soryu class submarines.

The Soryu is built by MHI in collaboration with Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI).

Alexandria Shipyard is in talks with Japan’s Kawasaki Shipbuilding Corporation (KSC) for transfer of technology (TOT) and license agreements concerning the export and local production of Soryu class submarines.

KSC is the shipbuilding subsidiary of KHI.
