Patria’s subsidiary Milrem LCM has signed a framework agreement with the Logistics Command of the Latvian National Armed Forces for the maintenance and repair of its Bv206 tracked vehicles, Patria announced on 12 April.

Under the eight-year agreement, Milrem will perform maintenance work with Patria’s Finnish subsidiary, Millog.

Latvia currently has around a hundred Bv206 vehicles in different configurations.

Ugis Romanovs, managing director of Milrem SIA in Latvia, said: ‘We are looking forward to a close cooperation with the Latvian armed forces and to grow it further. We have a solid know-how of partnerships with defence forces in lifecycle support services, particularly in northern Europe. And we believe that this agreement is a good basis for us to grow further in the Baltic countries.’

Patria owns 60% of Milrem LCM and 40% is owned by Mootor Grupp.
