The contract is a continuation of a contract signed in 2002, and the latest addition brings the total contract value to roughly MNOK 69.
The Spanish Navy is the first to use the Minesniper as a fully operational system. It has been deployed on all six of Spain's Segura Class mine clearing vessels, making the sale an important, international reference for KONGSBERG.
