Saab has con a $17.9 million contract from the Swedish Defense Materiel Administration to overhaul the HMS Halland, a Gotland-class submarine commissioned in 1997.

Saab said the overhaul will include all the necessary measures to ensure the submarine's operational availability. The company will also define future needs for the ship's maintenance, which could result in additional work being contracted separately during the period.

"Maintenance of Swedish surface vessels and submarines is an important part of our ongoing business," said Gunilla Fransson, head of Saab's Security and Defense Solutions business area. "It is also important to ensure the customer's long-term operational capability."

Work based on the submarine will be carried during 2014 and 2015 at the Saab Kockums shipyard in Karlskrona.
