Deliveries should have been completed in 2008, but as of 2012 only one aicraft have been delivered and Norway has warned NH Industries that if performance and capability are not resolved could face the cancellation of its order.
As of 2017 only six (in CG configuration) have been delivered. The rest are expected through 2020 with a full operational capability by 2022.
Norwegian NH90s (as all export naval aircraft) are built by Leonardo in Vergiate, Italy.
