TechnicAtome contracts with ECA Group for power conversion solutions for next generation French Submarine (SSBN)

Friday, July 29 2022
In February 2021, France initiated the renewal of its deterrent force by launching the design of its future 3rd generation ballistic missile submarines (SSBN), intended to replace the Le Triomphant class submarines currently in service with the French Navy's Strategic Oceanic Force as of 2035.

This month, TechnicAtome and ECA Group signed a major contract for the design, development, qualification and production of the electrical systems. Those systems  will ensure the primary functions of the nuclear propulsion boiler room while complying with the high levels of nuclear safety requirements.

TechnicAtome selected ECA Group for its experience in energy conversion with innovative technologies in power electronics, as well as its ability to offer modular solutions allowing mutualisation on different equipment. All developments will be conducted in France, contributing to the nation’s sovereign capabilities.

ECA Group is a recognised player in power conversion and control/command solutions in highly constrained environments and with high levels of performances.

ECA Group’s submarine systems already equip many navies worldwide, including the French Navy’s Barracuda-class and Le Triomphant-class submarines. ECA Group’ solutions comply with the expectations of such a major program: reliability, safety, performance and durability.

ECA Group's sea proven propulsion and energy conversion are compatible with any type of submarine design, either nuclear or conventional platforms. It offers high level of performance in acoustic and magnetic discretion, leveraging on ECA Group’s expertise in signature management, as well as a capability to withstand harsh environments (shock resistance, high temperatures etc.). The integration of complex electrical networks and use of the latest technologies guarantee unparalleled performances.

 


“I would like to thank TechnicAtome for selecting ECA Group on this flagship defence program for France. This is a start of a long partnership that will last for the whole duration of the submarine program, with state of the art power conversion solutions in a highly demanding environment. This is a token to our team’s expertise and we are fully committed to the success of this program.”
