BAE Systems has received an order from the Norwegian Army for the delivery of a further 20 CV90 infantry combat vehicles valued at 50 million euros. The Norwegian Defense Materials Agency carried out the additional order to increase the fleet to 164 vehicles.
The order is divided into 12 technical vehicles and eight transport vehicles. Norway is the third customer after Switzerland and the Netherlands to announce improvements to its CV90 fleet. Deliveries for Norway are planned for 2023.
The main contractor for the Norwegian order will be BAE Systems Hgglunds, based in Sweden, in cooperation with the Norwegian specialist Ritek. Up to 30 Norwegian companies will be involved in the construction of the new armor by providing components and subsystems. Previously, BAE Systems Hgglunds in Norway set an industrial fee for 100% of the contract value.
Along with Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Switzerland, Sweden and the Netherlands, Norway is one of the CV90’s seven European customers. With nearly 1,300 vehicles in various configurations, it’s a battle-tested vehicle with great potential for future growth. (Jos M Navarro Garca)
