Resulting from contracts successfully completed for the first four submarines of the program (Suffren, Duguay-Trouin, Tourville and De Grasse), this contract reinforces the position of ECA Group as supplier of electrical solutions for submarines and secures the supply of important equipment for the Barracuda program.

ECA Group's recent commercial successes in this sector, both in France and abroad (see press release of 06/18/2018) position ECA Group for next tenders of the future  3rd generation nuclear ballistic missile submarines and the Australian submarines programs.
