Milrem and BAE Systems Agreement for CV90 Maintenance

Lifecycle Management for Estonian IFV Fleet

Milrem LCM, an Estonian specialist in vehicle lifecycle management and a subsidiary of Finland’s Patria (60%) and Mootor Grupp (40%), has signed a contract with BAE Systems to support Estonia’s fleet of CV9035 infantry fighting vehicles (IFV).

The agreement is part of BAE Systems’ wider contract with the Estonian government to maintain and sustain 44 CV9035 vehicles acquired from the Netherlands in 2014. The first batch arrived in October 2016 and a second in December 2017: Milrem will provide maintenance and repair services for the fleet from its Estonian facilities. This co-operation will provide long-term benefits to the Estonian Defense Forces by sustaining and developing these vehicles for years to come.

“We are proud to work with BAE Systems’ as its preferred maintenance support partner in Estonia. Milrem LCM is committed to providing the most reliable framework for the Estonian Defense Forces as the country seeks to increase the combat capability of its land forces, now and in the future,” commented Milrem’s CEO, Kuldar Väärsi.

BAE Systems is also teaming with Milrem in the pursuit of the CV90 Support Vehicles re-build programme. The requirements, expected from the Estonian Centre for Defense Investment later this year, are predicted to cover the maintenance, repair and rebuild of an additional 37 CV90 MkI vehicles procured from Norway. Once outfitted, the support vehicles will form part of the same mechanised battalion as the CV9035.

Estonia is one of seven user nations operating CV90 IFV. There are more than 1,280 vehicles in 15 variants in service with Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and The Netherlands.
