Norway's Kongsberg secures RM600m missile job from Malaysian navy

KUALA LUMPUR: Norway's Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace AS has secured a 124mil euros (RM597.23mil) from the Malaysian navy to deliver naval strike missile (NSM) to the latter's six new littoral combat ships.

According to  Kongsberg's website on Wednesday, Boustead Naval Shipyard Sdn Bhd is building the ships based on naval group’s Gowind Class design. 

Kongsberg president Eirik Lie said this contract is a follow-on to the agreement announced on April 9, 2015 for NSM shipboard equipment.

“The NSM will be deck mounted and integrated to the SETIS combat management system provided by naval group,” he said.

Lie said the contract provides the navy with an important surface-to-surface-missile capability and confirms NSM’s very strong position in the international market. 
He added NSM is currently chosen by Norway, Poland, Germany and Malaysia.

Kongsberg is an international, knowledge-based group that supplies high-technology systems and solutions to customers engaged in the oil and gas industry, the merchant marine, and the defence and aerospace industries.
