The French Ministry of Armed Forces has awarded ECA Group a new five-year contract for the supply of consumables for the French Navy’s PAP demining remotely operated vehicles (ROVs). 

According to the company, the contract will amount to over €4 million up to a maximum of €8 million depending on utilization frequency.

In 1977, ECA Group delivered the very first mine disposal vehicles PAP to the French Navy. In 2017, forty years later, they are still in service with support from ECA Group.

The French demining PAPs will remain in activity till the mid 2020’s. They will be progressively replaced with the delivery of the future demining systems that the French Navy will order in the coming years after the results of MMCM FR/UK evaluation program.
