The contract is among the largest for Nammo’s Raufoss facility, and stems from orders announced by the Norwegian government earlier this year. Specifically, the agreement entails the procurement of a significant quantity of 155mm IM HE-ER shells, with a range of some 40 kilometers, Nammo said in a statement.
To facilitate production, Nammo has committed investment in new infrastructure, machinery, production hardware, and raw materials in Raufoss.
“This is an important contract for Nammo, which will bring more activity at Raufoss ahead. I am extremely proud of the hard work all our colleagues do at Raufoss, and in all of the 11 countries where Nammo has a presence. The war in Ukraine serves as a constant reminder of the challenging times we face, and underlines the importance of Nammo’s mission – to provide armed forces with what they need and improve their capabilities,” said Vegard Sande, Executive Vice President of Large Caliber Systems at Nammo.
