Fredrik Joachim Eriksen, Head of Personal Protection at Hansen Protection, says: "I am happy we have landed this framework agreement with FLO. We see this as a recognition of our long-term commitment to the development of advanced personal rescue equipment and its specialized adaptation for users in task forces, by fire department teams and by other public rescue services. It makes us proud that we will be able to both deliver and further develop our full range of personal rescue equipment for the Norwegian Armed Forces. The agreement means the Forces can effectively source a wide range of specialized and necessary life jackets, buoyancy aids, and survival suits. Hansen Protection is not new to the Norwegian Armed Forces and has been a key supplier for many years, but with this broad framework agreement now in place we appreciate the trust the Forces show in us.
