The contract, which furthers ACI's participation in a long-established programme, reflects demand in the global submarine market. Recent reports indicate that more than 80 boats will be launched in the Asia Pacific region over the next 10 years.

Phil Cartmell, Chairman of Corac said: "This order represents a good start to the year for ACI, and confirms our confidence that the combined current order book places Corac in a good position.

"Long term supply relationships are a key feature of the ACI business and this order demonstrates how the company can benefit from building business in expanding markets. Encouraging signs from global programmes offer ACI an increasing pipeline of opportunities for 2013 and beyond."
