Following a call for tenders launched in the summer of 2018, Belgium has just selected the Belgium Naval & Robotics consortium, bringing together Naval Group and ECA Robotics, for the supply of twelve mine-hunting vessels and their toolbox (payloads). Six ships are for the Belgian navy, the other six will be delivered to the Dutch navy. The contract, for which a budget of nearly two billion euros is planned, will last 10 years. The final notification of the contract should take place in the coming weeks.
The Belgium Naval & Robotics consortium and the Naval Group and ECA Group teams are honored by the trust of the Belgian and Dutch navies and look forward to this next collaboration.
