Selex ES, a Finmeccanica company, has signed a contract worth around €5m with NAV Portugal, the Portuguese Air Navigation Service Provider, to deliver logistic support and maintenance for air traffic control radars. The radars were installed in Portugal by Selex ES starting in 1997.
Announced during the World ATM congress today, the agreement will be active for ten years, during which the company will provide technical assistance as well as innovative and advanced maintenance services. The latter were developed by Selex ES to ensure effective and prompt responses to customer needs during the life cycle of complex systems.
The contract also includes the creation of a centralised depot in Lisbon under NAV Portugal responsibility to speed up the management of spare parts.
Selex ES will also supply on-call repair services, assistance and the supply of spare parts.
Since 1997, Selex ES has supplied eight ATC radars systems to NAV Portugal. The radar systems, which are installed in Porto Santo, Porto, Lisbon (2), Montejunto, Foia, Faro and Santa Maria, are in line with the latest international safety standards and have monitored Portugal’s airspace, including the archipelagos of Madeira (Porto Santo) and the Azores (Santa Maria), for over 15 years.
