French company, ECA Group presented its brand-new Belgian subsidiary, ECA Robotics Belgium, at an event in Brussels.
ECA Group comes to Belgium with the ambition and in partnership with Naval Group, to provide ships equipped with drones. This decision has been made in response to a consultation launched by the Belgian government as part of a Belgian-Dutch cooperation for the supply of twelve mine hunters.
A consortium between Naval Group and ECA Robotics, known as Belgium Naval & Robotics, has been specifically set up to participate in the tender. ECA Robotics Belgium will carry out and coordinate all ECA Group activities in Belgium related to unmanned systems to be deployed by mine hunters, as part of the Belgian government programme.
