BAE Systems announced it signed a new support, sustainment, and readiness agreement with the Norwegian Army for its fleet of 144 CV90 Infantry Fighting Vehicles, securing a new contract model to support the availability and continuous modernization of the fleet.
The seven-year agreement with the Norwegian Defence Logistics Organisation governs the purchase of components and equipment, as well as management and engineering work. It includes maintenance of the System Integration Lab, which ensures that both the customer and BAE Systems can monitor vehicles’ current conditions and state of readiness to optimize vehicle performance and capabilities across the fleet.
This incremental upgrades and continuous improvements model will be carried out as a combined effort between the Norwegian Army, local industry, and BAE Systems Hägglunds.
BAE Systems Hägglunds, based in Örnsköldsvik, Sweden, is currently working closely with its Norwegian industry hub, including small and medium-sized businesses, to deliver 20 additional new CV90s to the Norwegian Army. The order includes engineering and multi-carrier variants as part of its effort to grow and modernize in the face of evolving threats.
