Submarines: Factory Acceptance Test of ECA Group’s converters for two Indian Scorpene
As it had been done before in May 2015 for Indian Scorpene submarines 3 and 4, DCNS experts carried out the FAT of 8 ECA Group converters (2 x Static converter 60 kVA + 2 x Static converter 5 kVA per submarine), designed to be installed onboard Indian Scorpene submarines 5 and 6.
During the FAT procedure, ECA Group teams enabled our customer, DCNS, to control and validate the good running of each equipment.
The FAT resulted to be accepted for the whole equipment, thus allowing the shipping of the converters for the fifth submarine.
The delivery took place on March 31st at DCNS Cherbourg, whereas the converters for the 6th submarine will remain in ECA Group premises as training support within the framework of on-board crew training.
ECA Group has been partnering DCNS in all of its submarines programs for 80 years. ECA Group congratulates DCNS for the Australian submarines designation and is ready to take part in this new adventure.
