BAE Systems has signed a new 7-year support, sustainment, and readiness agreement with the Norwegian Army for its fleet of 144 CV90 Infantry Fighting Vehicles.

The contract covers component and equipment purchases, as well as management and engineering tasks.

It also includes the upkeep of the System Integration Lab, which ensures that both the customer and BAE Systems can monitor the present state and readiness of vehicles in order to improve fleet performance and capabilities.

“We are pleased to sign this contract to further secure the CV90 fleet for the future, both for ongoing sustainment and incremental capability upgrades,” said Major General Lars Christian Aamodt, Head of the Norwegian Defence Logistics Organisation.

“We have today one of the world’s most modern Infantry Fighting Vehicles able to advance combined arms with air and sea systems. With this contract we aim to stay in this position for many years to come.”

BAE Systems Hägglunds, situated in Örnsköldsvik, Sweden, is currently collaborating with its Norwegian industry centre to deliver 20 more CV90s to the Norwegian Army.

“We look forward to strengthening the trust and cooperation we have with our Norwegian customer, and building on the positive experiences with our Norwegian industry partners who are an essential part of this contract,” said Tommy Gustafsson-Rask, Managing Director of BAE Systems Hägglunds.

“We are committed to going the extra mile to serve our Norwegian customer, along with other countries who operate the vehicle, who all benefit from being part of the CV90 User Club.”

The CV90 is used by seven European countries: Norway, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Switzerland, Sweden, and the Netherlands.
