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 optimise vehicle performance and capabilities across the fleet.
 
“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.”
 
This incremental upgrades and continuous improvements model, carried out as a combined effort between the Norwegian Army, local industry and BAE Systems Hägglunds, will keep the combat-proven CV90 among the world’s most advanced Infantry Fighting Vehicles in service.
 
“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, which manufactures the CV90. “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.”
 
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 modernise in the face of evolving threats.
 
Norway is one of seven European users operating the CV90. The others are Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Switzerland, Sweden and the Netherlands. With close to 1,300 vehicles in service in multiple variants, the vehicle is designed to accommodate future growth to meet evolving missions.
