“We are proud that Poland has selected Saab as a partner in naval intelligence ship systems. We will contribute with our capabilities by building advanced platforms with world-leading sensors, fully integrating complete mission systems, where we have long experience,” said Saab’s President and CEO Micael Johansson.
The effectiveness of the contract is subject to the fulfilment of certain financial conditions. All conditions are expected to be fulfilled by the end of 2022.
The total order value corresponds to approximately EUR 620 million with deliveries planned during 2027. The order is expected to be booked by Saab before year end.
