Investigating Methods of Strengthening Existing Collaboration
Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace and Navantia have signed an MoU to explore potential collaboration in supporting future modernisation for the Royal Norwegian Navy’s F-310 Nansen-class frigates, the companies announced on 17 March.
Delivered 2006-2011, the Nansen-class vessels were designed and built by Navantia, which has supported their sustainment and maintenance since 2013. Kongsberg was a major subcontractor to the original programme, supplying parts of the vessels’ combat management and navigation systems, and has supported the maintenance programme for many years since.
The companies will now investigate methods of joint collaboration in future support of modernisation of the class, with the ultimate goal of offering optimal solutions to the Norwegian armed forces.
