Saab and Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa (PGZ) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to increase cooperation in building and delivering surface ships and submarines to the Polish Navy and export customers.

Both companies signed a letter of intent earlier this year to cooperate on projects for Poland’s defence modernisation programme.

PGZ CEO Arkadiusz Siwko said: “I am convinced that the cooperation between Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa and Saab will be beneficial both for our partner and for the Polish Navy.

“Ensuring Polish security, also at sea, is one of the most important tasks for PGZ arising from the technical modernisation plan.

“The signing of this agreement opens the door for the Polish defence and shipbuilding industries to a wide range of technological cooperation, while for the Polish Navy, it is an opportunity to procure the most modern ships.”

As part of plans to upgrade its military forces through 15 priority modernisation programmes, the Polish Navy’s defence capabilities are expected to be boosted by acquiring modern submarines and surface ships.
