Saab has signed a contract with the Australian Department of Defence to deliver deployable health modules for the Australian Government’s Deployable Health Capability Program, Joint Project 2060.
The order value is 337 MAUD (2,150 MSEK) for the years 2020-2027, including 5 years of support.
Saab has partnered with Aspen Medical, Philips Healthcare Australia & NZ, Broadspectrum and Marshall Land Systems to deliver more than 550 deployable medical modules.
“Saab is a strategic and long-term partner for Australian Defence and as a result of this contract, we will relocate our global deployable health centre of excellence from Sweden to Australia,” says Andy Keough, Managing Director at Saab Australia.
Saab delivers health modules which includes a surgical theatre, mobile computed tomography (CT) scanner, x-ray and ultrasound equipment along with trauma, intensive care and ward units and can be ready for national or international deployment within 24hours.
The program will ultimately see a purpose-built warehouse located in South East Queensland to meet the storage, training and maintenance requirements.
