ECA to supply consumables for PAP demining ROVs

17th July 2017 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


ECA Group has been awarded a five-year contract by the French armed forces to supply consumables and spares for the French Navy's PAP demining remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), the company announced on 12 July.

The value of the contract is over $4.5 million.

Originally delivered to the navy in 1977, the Pap mine disposal vehicles will remain in service until the mid-2020s, when they will be progressively replaced by the systems being developed under the French/UK MMCM programme.

In its latest configuration, PAP MK6 is a self-propelled ROV deployed to carry out mine warfare activities. The ROV’s robust and reliable design with high powered propulsion allows it to manoeuver in strong current and withstand harsh environmental conditions.
