Sweden signs the contract for 25 NH90


Swedish Air Force signed the purchase contract for 25 NH90 helicopters (including 7 in option)

NHIndustries, September 26, 2001 - Stockholm, Sweden - Today at the FMV office, the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration in Stockholm, Brigadier General Mats Westin, of the Swedish Air Force and Mr. Philippe Stuckelberger, General Manager of NHIndustries, signed the purchase contract for 25 NH90 helicopters (including 7 in option).

After two year's competition, this follows the NSHP committee recommendation and the Swedish Minister of Defence selection of the NH90, announced on 18 September 2001.

The 18 helicopter's firm order includes 13 TTT/SAR and 5 ASW variants to be operated by the Swedish Air Force. The TTT/SAR and the ASW, derived from the NAHEMA TTH version, will be equipped with a complete new mission tactical system (MTS) developed by SAAB in collaboration with NHIndustries.

All the Swedish NH90 are equipped with the Rolls-Royce Turbomeca RRTM322-01/9 engine.

First NH90 TTT helicopter will be delivered to Swedish Air Force early 2005, and the series will be completed within the year 2009.


NHIndustries, together with its Partner Companies, is very proud to announce this new success of the NH90 in particular to the five NH90 Programme participating Countries, which have largely contributed to the design, development, and qualification of this excellent helicopter system.
