Patria Helicopters AB has received an order for Hkp16 (Black Hawk) maintenance taking place in Linköping, Sweden as the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration FMV was realising their option.
Patria and the FMV signed an agreement in 2014 on the support of the Swedish Armed Forces Hkp16 Black Hawk helicopters’ maintenance in Linköping. The agreement covered the period 2015-2017 with an option for extension through 2020. Estimated value of the agreement, including options, was approximately 25 MEUR.
“This follow-on order is an important milestone for Patria not only in Sweden, but also wider as it shows Patria's capability in supporting military programs with cost effective solutions in long-term and is a sign of trust from the customer,” says Jukka Holkeri, President of International Support Partnerships business unit at Patria.
