Saab Area Support and Services has received an SEK154 million order from the Swedish Ministry of Defence armament procurement arm (FMV) to provide support and maintenance for Gripen C/D fighter jet during 2016 on behalf of the Swedish Air Force.
In 2012 Saab signed a contract with FMV for performance-based support and maintenance of the combat aircraft. This latest order for services in 2016 is confirmation of an option held under that 2012 contract. The order includes support and maintenance operations with a focus on technical support, publications and component maintenance to support the continued operation of Gripen C/Ds.
The original June 2012 contract with FMV includes options for additional orders up to a maximum value of SEK1.37 billion to the period ending in December 2016. With this order, a total of SEK1.23 billion of the available options has been exercised.
