The supply of 16 units of static converters on four type-U209 v.1200 Peruvian submarines is part of a project of modernization, staggered over almost seven years.
The end goal of the contract ist to allow the Peruvian Navy to keep for another fifteen years its current submarine force, in view of a project of acquisition of new generation submarines around 2035.
ECA Group’s submarine applications activities have significantly increased over the past 18 months.
In 2017, ECA Group has been awarded two contracts to equip two South East Asian navies with Static Converters. With this new contract from the Peruvian Navy, nine submarines (with an option for two more) from various submarines building companies, will be equipped with upgraded ECA Group’s solutions combining high technical level and competitiveness.
The three contracts worth around €6 million in total, the latest being the largest. The delivery of these converters is scheduled across the four upcoming years.
