27th December 2016 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Kongsberg Defence and Aerospace will provide maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) of dynamic components on NH90 and AW101 helicopters under agreements signed with Leonardo on 22 December.

The agreements cover components including gear boxes on a fleet of over 100 designated helicopters flying in Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Canada.

Key elements of the agreements are related to the establishment of advanced test equipment, including a multi-purpose test bench, which will enable full functional testing of gear boxes for different helicopter types at Kongsberg’s facilities in Norway.

Terje Bråthen, executive vice president aerostructures, Kongsberg Defence Systems, said: ‘We are excited that we can grow our helicopter MRO business together with Leonardo as a valued partner and that we now will establish extensive gear box testing capabilities at Kongsberg for Norway and international customers.’
