Saab delivers medical care system to the Swedish Armed Forces

: 28 May, 2009  (Company News)
Saab has received an order from FMV (the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration) for a modular medical care system. The contract is valued to approximately SEK 120 million, with options continuing up to and including 2013. The system will be used in international operations and for training.
FMV has earlier this year ordered parts of the modular medical care system from Saab to supply Nordic Battlegroup 2011. The new contract gives the Swedish Armed Forces additional medical capabilities such as patient reception, trauma unit, surgery, intensive care, dental care, radiology, laboratory, sterilisation and oxygen production. These capabilities mean that the Swedish Armed Forces now have a system with all the medical modules and all the equipment that is required. The contract also includes training and systems for testing and calibrating the equipment.

- We are very pleased that we now will supply the Swedish Armed Forces with a complete medical care system that has the same high levels of quality as those found in civilian health care facilities. The contract is a confirmation that Saabís turn key solution for Medical Care is both flexible and cost effective. This will certainly lead to more business opportunities for this system internationally as well, says Bo Petersson, Head of Ground Support Services, Saab Aerotech.

The basic order is worth approximately SEK 120 million and will be delivered to the customer in 2010 for use in international operations and for training of personnel. The contract also contains options giving FMV possibilities to make continual orders up to and including 2013.
