6 January 2022 – Kongsberg Aviation Maintenance Services (KAMS) has entered into contracts with Leonardo for maintenance support for Norway’s fleet of SAR Queen / AW101 rescue helicopters for the period 2022-2026.
The agreements apply to logistics services to be delivered from KAMS’ headquarters at Kjeller, as well as maintenance services to be delivered to the Rescue Service’s bases at Sola, Ørland, Bodø, Banak, Florø and Rygge as SAR Queen takes over after the Sea King helicopters to be phased out in during the contract period.
The agreements have a value of approximately 260 MNOK and represent an extension of the framework agreement for maintenance services entered into in 2016.
“We are very pleased with the renewed trust from Leonardo and that we will continue to contribute to the Rescue Service’s helicopters having high operational availability, as we have done for the past 50 years. We look forward to further developing the collaboration with Leonardo and the Rescue Service in the years to come,” says Atle Wøllo, CEO of KAMS.
