Electric Motors from ECA Group Power Nuclear Attack Subs for French Navy
The Barracuda-class submarines are nuclear attack submarines
designed by the French shipbuilder Naval Group. Over a 10-yearlong period started in 2017, they are progressively replacing older
subs in the fleet, representing a renewal of France's naval forces.
At the beginning of the program, ECA was entrusted with the design and supply of cutting-edge technology energy conversion
and propulsion systems. After successfully supplying equipment
for the first three submarines of the program, the company was selected to equip additional subs in the program. Its fourth set of the
electric propulsion motor successfully passed the factory acceptance test in December 2019. All the tests carried out confirmed
the expected performances have been reached, including the
most sensitive one, related to the low level of acoustic signature
required for the equipment, reports ECA. Since then, the company
has been engaged in systems for the fifth and sixth Barracudas
while commissioning for the completed craft began in 2020.

As the French navy upgrades its fleet with new Barracuda submarines, more advanced electric propulsion motors from French
defense contractor ECA Group are proving their mettle beneath
the surface of the Atlantic. Specially designed for demanding applications such as silent propulsion, ECA Group builds propulsion
electrical motors up to 1MW for submarines that can be comprised
of DC, asynchronous, synchronous, permanent-magnet motors.
