The Slovenian Ministry of Defence has on 12 June, 2006 announced that Patria AMV
has been selected as the preferred vehicle for the Slovenian armored vehicle
program. Final contract negotiations will start immediately.
The scope of the deal covers 136 wheeled armored personnel carriers in 4
different versions. The vehicles will be manufactured in Finland and in Slovenia
together with Slovenian co-operation partners. The deliveries are scheduled for
2007 - 2011.
By choosing Patria AMV the customer will get the technologically most advanced
product that is already in serial production and with over 100 AMVs delivered up
to date. In the longer term co-operation with Patria will offer new working
opportunities for local partners and create success and new possibilities for
the Slovenian industry.
Patria has already fulfilled 100% of its technology transfer in Poland. Polish
partner WZM delivered its first Polish made AMV to the customer in the end of
2005 and local production is going on. In March the first two of the altogether
24 AMV/AMOS mortar vehicles were delivered to the Finnish Defence Forces.
