EID has been awarded a contract worth $5.4 million to equip the Portuguese Navy’s Tejo-class coastal patrol vessels with integrated communication systems, the company announced on 1 August.

Under the terms of the contract, EID will supply radio equipment, integrated communications control systems (ICCS), engineering and logistic services.

The contract also includes supply of additional systems for the second batch of Viana do Castelo patrol ships, which are currently under construction at West Sea shipyard in Viana do Castelo, Portugal.

António Marcos Lopes, managing director, EID, said: ‘We have been supplying communications systems to the Portuguese Navy ships since 1985. Their performance has helped to grow the export market for these systems, which are now in use in several parts of the world.

‘We are grateful to the Portuguese Navy for showing the confidence in our skills and capabilities, enabling the international success of ICCS. This new contract demonstrates that the Portuguese Navy, one of our most important customers, is happy with our global, positive and responsive performance.’
