We advised Saab AB on the delivery of airborne early warning aircraft to the Polish Armed Forces

BSJP | bnt law firm has once again provided legal support to Saab AB in finalizing a contract for the supply of military equipment to Poland. The contract is for the delivery of two Saab 340 AEW&C (Airborne Early Warning and Control) aircraft and ground equipment as well as logistical and training support to the Polish Armed Forces.

Valued at approx. SEK 600 million (PLN 230 million), the contract includes the delivery of complete solutions to integrate the aircraft into Poland’s air defence system as well as in-country logistics and support services. The duration of the contract spans from 2023 to 2025, with an additional two-year support period.

On behalf of BSJP | bnt the project was led by Partner Dag Nilsson. Working alongside him was Associate Michał Nowodworski.

The Saab 340 AEW order enhances the Polish Armed Forces with innovative solutions and vital training capabilities, reinforcing territorial integrity and national security. With advanced situational awareness, including aerial surveillance and rescue operations, the aircraft and associated ground equipment can detect low-flying or fast-moving objects from vast distances, significantly enhancing Poland’s airspace security.The first of the two aircraft arrived in Poland in early March 2024.

BSJP | bnt’s team provided comprehensive legal services to Saab AB regarding negotiations of the transactional documents, closing and post-closing activities. This marks another contract where we have had the pleasure of collaborating with Saab AB. Back in 2023, we assisted the Swedish manufacturer in finalizing a contract for the delivery of signal intelligence ships to the Polish Navy.
