ECA Group to supply steering consoles for ROKN submarine

8th June 2020 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


ECA Group has won a contract worth approximately €4 million ($4.53 million) to supply steering and diving consoles (SNDCs) to a Republic of Korea Navy’s Dosan Ahn Chang-Ho-class (Batch II) submarine.

The company previously delivered equipment to other South Korean submarines in 2016, 2018 and 2019. This latest delivery is expected to be made by 2023 with operational testing completed by 2027.

Alongside the consoles, ECA Group will be responsible for the delivery of two steering and diving simulators which will be used to train South Korean naval officers and operators.

These simulators will accurately recreate SNDC behaviour in underwater conditions and will provide training opportunities for maintenance crews on Dosan Ahn Chang-Ho-class boats, by creating potential breakdown scenarios.
