ECA Group wins new naval mine countermeasures deal

5th May 2020 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


ECA Group announced on 4 May that it has secured a new two-year contract worth €20 million ($21.7 million) to modernise the mine clearance capabilities of an undisclosed naval customer.

The company stated: ‘This new modernisation contract confirms ECA Group’s capacity to push forward existing underwater mine clearance systems and bring them closer to the performance of the most recent ones.’

It added that the customer has operated ‘ECA Group drones for several decades.'

In 2019, the Belgian and Dutch navies awarded contracts to the group which seek to modernise their mine countermeasure capabilities using drone systems, whilst in March 2020, the Lithuanian Navy received a delivery of K-STER ROVs (pictured) for mine clearance.
