In 2013 Nuclebrás Equipamentos Pesados S / A - NUCLEP was accredited by the Ministry of Defense as one of the first Strategic Defense Companies (EEDs) in the country. It is a mechanism that guarantees to the accredited national industries the access to special tax regimes and financing, with the objective of making them more competitive, both in the internal and external markets. In shipbuilding, NUCLEP stood out with the manufacture of resistant hulls to four IKL submarines to the Brazilian Navy, which are now already incorporated into the naval fleet, including Brazil in the select group of countries that have the manufacturing technology of this type of vessel. Currently, NUCLEP has a contract to the manufacture of resistant helmets for four submarines, of the Scorpène class, of French technology, for the Brazilian Navy.
