Under the agreement with the Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organisation (DALO), the company will upgrade and support a fleet of 44 CV90s.
The deal covers prototyping, government-furnished equipment integration, systems safety, and maintenance, repairs, and overhaul.
BAE Systems Hägglunds business development director Peter Nygren said: “This is a strategically important contract that further underpins good relations with the Danish customer.
“We recognise the importance of this contract to our Danish customer and we are looking forward to meeting our commitments.”
The CV90 is said to provide interoperability, high tactical and strategic mobility, air defence, anti-tank capability, and survivability in any terrain or tactical environment.
DALO land division head colonel Anders Maerkedahl Pedersen said: “This agreement with BAE Systems Hägglunds is a very important milestone for DALO and the Danish Army.
“With this partnership, we will sustain and develop these highly advanced platforms during the many years to come.”
