ECA Group has received a contract from an South East Asian navy to supply static frequency converters to equip two U209 class submarines, the company announced on 30 May.
The customer already operates two U209 class submarines outfitted with ECA Group's static frequency converters. This contract is meant to equip the rest of the fleet.
The Static Converter 20KVA-400 HZ and 60HZ provided by ECA Group will replace the submarines' existing rotary converters. The converter produces whether120V/400HZ network or 60Hz depending on the version. It fits in existing submarine interfaces and can be dismantled into various sub-assemblies for easier integration.
ECA has also supplied its static frequency converters to The French Navy and other navies in South East Asia have already been supplied with ECA Group's static converters.
