Saab, PGZ sign Polish market MoU

28th October 2016 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Saab and Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa (PGZ) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to collaborate on Polish naval programmes, Saab announced on 26 October.

The companies will cooperate in the planning and delivery of Polish programmes, including surface ship and submarine construction. Potential customers will include the Polish Navy and export customers.

The MoU follows the signing of a letter of intent earlier this year under which the companies will cooperate on a range of projects related to Poland’s defence modernisation in the naval, air and land domains. 

PGZ is a leading manufacturer of equipment for the Polish defence forces and will play a key role in Polish defence projects.

The Polish armed forces are currently seeking to develop modern defence capabilities under 15 modernisation programmes, including plans for the purchase of modern submarines and surface ships to boost the capabilities of the Polish Navy.

Gunnar Wieslander, head of Saab Kockums, said: ‘Saab sees the Polish market as very important and aims at developing an even stronger partnership. We share the same security challenges in the Baltic Sea and together we can work to deepen defence projects partnership and offer an unbeatable industrial offering to the Polish end customer.’
