Saab Kockums names Jeumont Electric supplier of the year

19 January 2018

On December 12 Jeumont Electric received the Saab Kockums “Supplier of the Year” award for 2017. Saab Kockums is a long-standing Jeumont Electric customer—Jeumont supplied equipment for the propulsion and generator systems of the company’s Gotland- and Collins-class submarines.

In July 2015 Jeumont Electric was selected to supply two propulsion motors as well as converter cabinets (including the integration of circuit-breaker cabinets provided by Schneider Electric, one of Jeumont Electric’s oldest partners) for the Swedish Navy’s A26 submarines. The project marked the start of an exciting new chapter for Kockums after its acquisition by Saab in 2014.
Jeumont Electric completed the preliminary design review and critical design review for the project in 2016 and all documents were delivered on schedule. Acceptance of the cabinets was completed with the customer and Jeumont Electric partner Schneider Electric.

Saab Kockums also chose Jeumont Electric for additional engineering and consulting services for the propulsion and generator systems for a Gotland A19-type submarine.
