KONGSBERG signed a contract for the maintenance of gearboxes for the Norwegian Sea King helicopters.
Kongsberg Defence Systems (KONGSBERG) and the Norwegian Defence Logistics Organisation signed an agreement that will see KONGSBERG responsible for the maintenance of gearboxes for the Norwegian Sea King helicopters until 2020, with an option for a three-year extension.
“This framework agreement secures a continued operation of the Norwegian Sea King helicopters until the new AW101 search and rescue helicopters are fully operative, and entail an important continuity for KONGSBERG in a period where the organisation is being built up to maintain gearboxes on the NH-90 and AW101 helicopters,” says Terje Bråthen, Executive Vice President Aerostructures, Kongsberg Defence Systems.
The value of the framework agreement has the potential to reach NOK300million (approximately $38million).
