19th January 2012 - 17:43 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Patria has announced that it has been selected by the Swedish Armed Forces to provide technical systems and maintenance support for the Swedish Armed Forces’ helicopters. The three year contract award was announced 19 January 2012.

The contract will see Patria provide a broad spectrum of support services for all the helicopter systems currently in operation and systems coming into operation in the Swedish Armed Forces. Patria provides support for various helicopter models such as HKP10 (Super Puma), HKP14 (NH90), HKP15 (Agusta 109) and HKP16 (Black Hawk), as well as the models to be phased out such as HKP4 (Boeing Vertol) and HKP9 (Bo105).

The agreement complements the Swedish Armed Forces’ own operations in main operating bases as well as in forward operating bases. The wide-ranging services provided by Patria vary from administration to sales of spare parts and special services within the military helicopter support.

The contract is an expansion of the current technical services and support agreement with the Swedish Armed Forces, and includes options for two years.
