Denmark Awards Contract for CV90 and BV206 Sustainment

BAE Systems Hägglunds announced on 22 September that it has signed an agreement with the Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organisation (DALO) to provide systems integration, capability upgrades and support for the long-term sustainment of Denmark’s fleet of 44 CV90 infantry fighting vehicles. The agreement, which also covers the BV206 all-terrain vehicle, covers prototyping, integration of government-furnished equipment and systems safety, as well as maintenance, overhaul and repair.

Since 2009 BAE Systems has contributed close to €300 million to the Danish economy as part of its commitment to use Danish companies to support the CV90 fleet. The new agreement envisions comprehensive industrial cooperation between BAE Systems and industrial partners in Denmark, paving the way for job creation and potential technology transfer and investment, contributing to national economic development and growth.

This is a strategically important contract that further underpins good relations with the Danish customer,” said Peter Nygren, director of business development at BAE Systems Hägglunds. “We recognise the importance of this contract to our Danish customer and we are looking forward to meeting our commitments.”
 
This agreement with BAE Systems Hägglunds is a very important milestone for DALO and the Danish Army,” Colonel Anders Maerkedahl Pedersen, head of Land Division at DALO, said. “With this partnership, we will sustain and develop these highly advanced platforms during the many years to come.”

Over 1,280 CV90s in nine separate variants are in service, operated by seven European nations, including four NATO members.
