Subcontractor to URO Vehiculos Especiales
EID, a Cohort plc company, has won a contract from the Portuguese Army to supply communications equipment to the VAMTAC 4×4 Light Armoured Tactical Vehicle programme.
Valued at €4.8 million, the contract calls for 139 vehicles to be equipped over the next two years. It follows an International Competitive Tender issued by the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) on behalf of the Portuguese Ministry of Defence. The competition was won by the Spanish vehicle manufacturer URO Vehiculos Especiales S.A., with EID as subcontractor.
“This win represents another addition to EID’s long record of success in providing military communication equipment to domestic and export customers. The contract award, together with other recent wins, enhances the visibility of future Group revenue,” commented Cohort’s Chief Executive, Andy Thomis.
