Saab has redelivered one of the Swedish Navy’s Gotland-class submarines to Swedish Navy (FMV) after general overhaul and upgrades.
On 29 September 2014 Saab was contracted to perform overhaul and upgrade work on one of Sweden’s Gotland-class submarines. That work has now been completed. All necessary measures have been taken to ensure the submarine's operational availability. The upgrade includes new sensors and navigation systems, giving the vessel enhanced capabilities, the company said in a statement Thursday.
This submarine is one of three in the Gotland class (HMS Gotland, HMS Halland and HMS Uppland) commissioned in the late 1990s.
Maintenance and overhaul are important parts of the ongoing business at Saab Kockums. Another Gotland-class submarine will be subject to a mid-time upgrade, receiving all the improvements necessary to meet future operational requirements in the near future.
“Saab Kockums is now building the A26 next-generation submarine for the Swedish Navy. It is future-proofed vessel with a design that allows for faster and easier upgrades,” says Gunnar Wieslander, head of business unit Saab Kockums.
Saab has won a contract with the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) for a service life extension of the RBS 97 air defence missile system. The RBS 97 (Hawk) is a surface-to-air missile system that is part of Swedens national defences
