An engineering error caused the submarine to be 75 tons overweight, making it unable to resurface if it submerged, a Spanish industrial source said.

To tackle the weight problem, Electric Boat — owned by General Dynamics — was brought in by Navantia to help nail down the problems and find a solution.

EB, long the lead design shipyard for US submarines, is familiar with the S-80 program through a foreign military sales contract from the US Navy in support of the Spanish Defense Ministry. It also provided extensive assistance to BAE Systems a decade ago during construction and design problems with Britain’s Astute-class nuclear submarines.
