The Swedish Defence Material Administration (Försvarets materielverk – FMV) has delivered the first batch of new container tents to the Swedish Armed Forces, marking a significant upgrade in their field equipment.  

In autumn 2022, the FMV entered into a framework agreement to procure new containers to replace the Swedish Armed Forces’ older container tent version. 

The latest milestone marks the first delivery of tents to units under the same agreement.  

FMV highlighted that the new tents were purchased in response to the Swedish Armed Forces’ requirement for new version of tents that can be more functional and used for a wide variety of purposes.   

The new tents, which are attached to the long side of a 20ft container, provide an additional 15m² of covered space.  

These tents feature a metal frame which is associated with tent fabric, complete with necessary accessories such as anchoring materials as well as guy lines.

According to FMV, the new tents can withstand snowstorms, wind, and rain, which makes them compatible for use with Sweden’s multi-domain forces. 

Prior to the delivery of the first batch of tents, FMV in collaboration with the supplier conducted product training for the Swedish Armed Forces in autumn last year.  

Delivery of these tents will continue over the next few years. 

The procurement of these tents is part of a broader effort to enhance the technical service capabilities of the armed forces.  

FMV General Maintenance Equipment head Caroline Genfors said: “We are proud to be able to deliver these tents, as they help to quickly create a weather-protected environment for, for example, for the equipment maintenance and storage.” 

In December 2023, FMV also entered a framework agreement with Svekon for the design and production of staff tents.  

This collaboration, which includes Tekonf, will result in the delivery of the first 300 out of a potential 1,300 tents by the second quarter of 2025.
