Support & Maintenance of French Navy's Work class ROV H2000 by ECA Group

After being awarded in 2011 by DGA (French Defense Procurement Agency) the supply of a work class ROV for 2000 meters depth underwater interventions, ECA Group has been awarded a contract for ISS (In Service Support) by the French Navy Fleet Support Service (SSF).

ECA Group was awarded a  contract by SSF (Fleet Support Service), a service of the French Navy, the corrective and preventive maintenance contract of the H2000 "Diomede" ROV used by CEPHISMER (Diving and Intervention Unit), initially supplied by ECA Group in 2011. 

This service contract aims to guarantee the complete availability of CEPHISMER equipment, as it can be deployed anytime according to the needs of the French Navy. A high availablity (HA) contract states that any dysfunction shall be corrected within 48h.

Through this 2-year-long maintenance contract, the "Diomede" H2000 Remotely Operated Vehicle will undergo:

  • Major component replacement to ensure an extended lifespan of the product 
  • Minor upgrades

This awarding was the result of an invitation to bid lead by SSF and now confirms the trust placed by CEPHISMER in the efficiency and reliability of ECA Group' robotic systems.

ECA Group aims to support its clients all along the life cycle of its products and systems.
