Kongsberg Naval Services AS (KONGSBERG), has been awarded a strategic framework agreement with the Norwegian Defence Materiel Agency for operational support, maintenance and life extension services on Norway’s Nansen-class frigates. The contract has a total value of up to 17 billion kroner for services delivered throughout the lifetime - assumed until 2040.

KONGSBERG is chosen as the main supplier with overall responsibility for implementing management and ship technical maintenance, modifications, and possible life extension of the Nansen-class frigates.

KONGSBERG will coordinate and contract activities with the partners through integrated and long-term cooperation with the Armed Forces. The company has formed a constellation consisting of the shipyards Westcon Yards and Coast Center Base (CCB), as well as WilNor Governmental Services (WGS) and Wilhelmsen Ship Management (WSM). KONGSBERG also has a cooperation agreement with Navantia that ensures support services from the shipyard that built the ships.

Westcon’s role will be to perform docking and ship technical maintenance and conversions in Florø. With a perspective until 2040,we have secured a solid activity base for our employees and can develop the shipyard and our suppliers in the region in a long-term perspective.

We are humble and grateful that Kongsberg and the Armed Forces have chosen to invest in Westcon Florø and we look forward to agood cooperation.
