Deal also includes new training facility in the north of Norway

Saab is providing service and maintenance support for the Norwegian Combat Training Centre until October 2024 at the earliest, under a new contract worth approximately SEK200 million ($22.9 million).

The contract, announced on 23 October, also includes optional extensions for up to three years. Saab has provided training support to Norway in a series of deals since 2004.

Saab will not only provide operational system support for the Norwegian Defence Forces but it will also establish an additional combat training facility in northern Norway.

‘The Norwegian Defence Forces will remain the capability of training with up to brigade sized units in-country and abroad,’ Saab noted. ‘The interoperability with NATO and other countries are and will be an important capability in multinational live exercises with simulators, as example with training partners such as US, Sweden, Finland and Netherlands.’
