Saab Receives Orders from FMV Regarding Submarine Upgrades

Saab has received new orders from FMV regarding submarine upgrades. The orders include a life-time extension of HMS Södermanland, as well as new batteries and battery development. The total order value is SEK 470 million.

The life-time extension means that the submarine HMS Södermanland will receive around 50 modifications, prolonging and enhancing her operability for a further six years. The orders also include an exchange of batteries for the Swedish Navy’s current submarine fleet, as well as a project focusing on battery development, to ensure capabilities both at present and long-term.

“We are proud to be a trusted partner to FMV in securing submarine capabilities for the Swedish Navy. These orders give us the opportunity to continuously plan for the best way forward together with the customer,” said Lars Tossman, head of business area Kockums.
