This contract, worth around € 20 million will last over 48 months and will allow to modernize the mine clearance capacities of an undisclosed Navy.

The evolution of the mine threat in maritime areas is a current and growing concern for many countries.

For 50 years, ECA Group has been supplying navies all around the world with unmanned systems for underwater mine clearance.

Also, the contract from 2019 by the Belgian and Netherlands navies has confirmed ECA Group’s innovation capacity over the decades.

This new modernization contract further boosts Group’s capacity to push forward existing underwater mine clearance systems and bring them closer to the performance of the most recent ones.

The company highlighted the trust placed in its expertise and solutions by navies worldwide.

A trust renewed by this client already equipped with ECA Group drones for several decades,” the company said.
