The frigate was launched and named by King Frederik IX, 20 May 1965.

 

The Frigate is designed by a Danish project group from the Navy and built at the then Helsingør Shipyard and Machine Builder A/S as new-building no. 370. The Frigate had its name approved by royal resolution dated January 15th 1964. The keel was laid on September 25th 1964 and it was launched and named by King Frederik IX on May 20th 1965. The Frigate was commissioned and accepted into the Navy on May 25th 1966. It was fully financed by the US as a part of the then Weapons Aid Program.

 

Before the project was agreed on, the Navy had considered various types of design. Originally, the two units of the type had been classified as destroyers as their size and armament corresponded to the destroyers of that time. However, a less offensive designation was decided upon - frigate.

 

For Helsingør Shipyard the construction had far-reaching effects - economic as well as technical. The shipyard in cooperation with the Navy and the main sub-contractors solved some extraordinarily complicated problems. Unfortunately, the shipyard used the same high quality requirements when afterwards building conventional merchant vessels, thus resulting in the price level being unacceptably high. That combined with the competition from foreign yards in 1983 caused the shipyard to go bankrupt. 

 

When launched HDMS Peder Skram caused considerable international attention by being the first warship featuring combined gas turbine and diesel machinery as well as pitch control propellers. That is why one of the first voyages was a visit to the United States to present itself.
