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.
