The MoU are a part and parcel of PZL-Świdnik’s (its subsidiary) offer within the tender for the supply of 70 multirole helicopters for the Polish Armed Forces, for which the company offers the AW149 helicopter.
AgustaWestland’s proposal for the Polish industry provides for the implementation of over 50 offset projects involving nearly 25 foreign partners, who will cooperate with close to 20 Polish enterprises representing 60% of Polish defence industry, within the AW149 program performed for the Polish MoD. The total of AgustaWestland’s offset obligations amounts to billions of EUR.
AgustaWestland signed MoU on offset contracts with four key Polish Armaments industries like Fabryka Broni Radom (Radom Arms Factory), Military Aviation Works no. 1 in Łódź, Military Aviation Works no. 2 in Bydgoszcz and ZM Tarnów.
