Kongsberg and NDLO sign two defence support agreements
Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace and the Norwegian Defence Logistics Organisation (NDLO) have signed two cooperation agreements.
This first is a letter of intent for possible cooperation and readiness, and the second a strategic cooperative agreement for airborne platform support.
The two entities say they will further explore the potential for more work in the future to provide support for the Norwegian armed forces’ emergency readiness needs.
The first milestone in this collaboration is a cooperation agreement for the support of the airborne platforms portfolio between Kongsberg Aviation Maintenance Services (previously AIM Norway) and NDLO.
This could include engine maintenance for the new F-35 Joint Strike Fighter and support for Norway’s new AW101 SAR helicopters.
‘It is important for us to reinforce cooperation with the Norwegian industry in order to cover the armed forces' need for maintenance and service in the future,’ Petter Jansen, CEO of the NDLO, said.
‘With the acquisition of AIM, now Kongsberg Aviation Maintenance Services, we are well prepared to support the Norwegian armed forces with these types of maintenance tasks,’ Eirik Lie, president of Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace, added.
‘This agreement continues the excellent cooperation we have with NDLO, as well as securing our highly competent workforce in Kongsberg Aviation Maintenance Services.’
The two parties have established a steering group that will lead to the development of this cooperation, they noted.
