Svekon’s successful collaboration with the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) continues. In 2020, Svekon was commissioned to develop the Rubber Boat Patrol, a boat intended for the Navy and Army, complete with engine and accessories. In August 2023, the final delivery of a total of 48 boats to the Swedish Armed Forces took place.
The delivery: 48 boats with engines and 10 additional engines
The project involves the procurement of 48 Rubber Boat Patrols with engines and 10 additional outboard motors for dual mounting, along with options for the acquisition of an additional 42 Rubber Boat Patrols with engines and 10 extra motors. The delivery of the 48 boats with their corresponding engines took place in two partial deliveries, one in March and one in August 2023.
Training for technical personnel and users
Svekon’s delivery also includes training. This includes training for technical personnel on technology and maintenance, as well as training for storage personnel on handling and storage. Additionally, there is user-oriented training for the Swedish Armed Forces’ instructors, who then train soldiers and officers how to use the boat and its accessories.
A tailored team with several different specialized skills
In the project, Svekon has delivered according to the Svekon Team model, where various capabilities are handpicked for different roles and phases of the project. The majority are engineers with various types of specialized expertise. In the team, Svekon has provided a designer, simulation expert, systems safety expert, ILS engineers, technical writer, illustrator, systems developer, verification manager, and project manager.
Engine rig with integrated fire function
Both the boat and engines should be easily carried by the users. Therefore, an integrated system was developed with an engine rig that can be disassembled and used as a stretcher when the engine needs to be carried.
