ECA Group to retrofit 16 static converters on 4 Peruvian submarines

Thursday, May 17 2018
ECA Group will supply 16 units of static converters to the shipyard SIMA and Peruvian Navy to be replaced on four type-U209 v.1200 submarines.

ECA Group has just signed a contract with the shipyard SIMA and Peruvian Navy for the replacement of the 16 units of static converters 115V / 400Hz and 115V / 60Hz aboard their four type-U209 v.1200 submarines:

  • BAP Angamos (SS 31)
  • BAP Antofagasta (SS 32)
  • BAP Pisagua (SS 33)
  • BAP Chipana (SS 34).

This project of modernization, staggered over almost seven years for the four submarines, will allow Peruvian Navy to keep for another fifteen years its current submarine force, particularly in the expectation of a project of acquisition of new generation submarines around 2035.

This strategic contract for ECA Group strengthens its market position for the retrofit of submarines particularly in South America. After the successes obtained in Asia in 2017, ECA Group confirms its position as a main player for the conversion of energy for submarines. 

About ECA Group's Static converters

ECA Group provides static converters as a suitable energy conversion solutions for harsh environments such as inside submarines while ensuring a safety conditions for equipment and operators. ECA Group static converters equip several French submarines and were also successfully supplied to other navies in South East Asia. 

Our converters provide local and remote control and monitoring. They have been designed with electrical and thermal protections for equipment and operator safety.

ECA Group designs Static Converter 20KVA-400 HZ and 60HZ for submarines, which are an advanced technological solution to replace existing rotary converters.
