Finland has chosen Saab as the combat system provider and integrator for the Finnish Navy’s four new Pohjanmaa-class corvettes within the Squadron 2020 programme.

The Squadron 2020 contract due to be signed this week has an order value of €412 million.

The contract period will be 2019-2027 and the scope will include a range of solutions, including Saab’s 9LV Combat Management System, related sensors and other systems.

All of the Finnish Navy’s current vessels feature at least one system from Saab, with the majority of vessels operating several systems from Saab.

Anders Carp, Senior Vice President and head of Saab business area Surveillance, said: “This announcement marks a major milestone in Saab’s relationship with Finland and we look forward to continuing to support the Finnish Navy’s capabilities with our world-leading combat system expertise.”
