The Finnish Defence Forces have signed a contract with Rauma Marine Constructions (RMC) for the design of the Finnish Navy’s four Squadron 2020 project multirole corvettes.

The 7.5 million euro design contract follows the Memorandum of Understanding that was signed between the Defence Forces and RMC in September 2016.

Under the contract, RMC will further define the vessel concept and produce the basic design material which is required for manufacturing the vessels. The contract to actually construct the vessels is scheduled to be signed in the course of 2018.

Earlier this month, Finland also announced the names of three shortlisted combat system bidders for the vessels.  German Atlas Elektronik GmbH, the Canadian Lockheed Martin Canada Inc and the Swedish Saab Ab were down-selected for further consideration.

Squadron 202 vessels are expected to be capable of surface warfare operations, naval mine and anti-submarine warfare, in addition to command and control capabilities and the ability to stay at sea for prolonged times in all weather and ice conditions.

In addition to minelayer, FNS Pohjanmaa, which has already been decommissioned, the vessels of the Squadron 2020 project will replace four fast attack missile craft of the Rauma class and two minelayers of the Hämeenmaa class. The total cost of the project has been estimated to be 1.2 billion euros. According to plan, the first vessels will be commissioned in 2021.

A Marinha Finlandesa vai mudar por completo a sua capacidade com a aquisição destas Corvetas. Felizmente para eles, os governos estão a apostar à anos na Defesa e enquanto que nós adquirimos 37 Leopards, eles adquiriram mais de 100!

Continuo a dizer que apesar de os NPO's serem uma boa plataforma para o mar Português, a substituição directa das corvetas por eles deixa um vazio muito grande em termos de tonelagem...

Visto que apenas vamos ficar com 2 (vergonha..) fragatas capazes e 3 para cenários de baixa intensidade não faria sentido termos pelo menos 2 corvetas (modernas e capazes) que conseguissem acompanhar as fragatas?

Ainda não reparaste que a marinha vai converter as fragatas Vasco da Gama em corvetas. A marinha já à  muito tempo que vem a reduzir o número de navios combatentes em 74 eram 4 fragatas joão belo, em 91 passou para três fragatas Vasco da Gama e em 2016 passamos para duas fragatas Bartolomeu dias. Por este andamento iremos ter em 2030, uma fragata.

Hamina-class Fast Attack Missile Crafts to Be Upgraded and Equipped with a Torpedo Weapon System
(Source: Finland Ministry of Defence; issued Dec 19, 2017)

 The Finnish Defence Forces' Logistics Command received a mandate, on 19.12.2017, from Defence Minister Jussi Niinistö to sign contracts on the upgrade of the Hamina-class fast attack missile crafts (FAC).

 The Finnish Defence Forces' Logistics Command received a mandate to sign a contract with Patria Aviation Ltd. which will bear the principle responsibility for the upgrade. As a part of the upgrade, a torpedo weapon system will be procured from Saab Dynamics Ab. The overall value of the upgrade is EUR 223 million. The upgrade process is expected to generate a domestic employment effect of about 300 man-years.

 To acquire capabilities in line with the Defence Policy Report is a part of the naval defence development programme; the upgrade of the Hamina-class FAC will ensure sufficient naval defence readiness in the 2020s after the decommissioning of Rauma class FAC and before the Squadron 2020 corvettes have been taken into use.

 The goal of the upgrade is to secure the service life of Hamina-class vessels until 2035, extend the independent operating time of vessels and improve anti-submarine warfare and self-protection capabilities. The ship class will be equipped with the Surface Warfare Missile 2020 system, to be chosen in 2018. The surface-to-surface missile batteries and Squadron 2020 corvettes will be equipped with the same type of missile.

 The lightweight torpedo weapon system to be purchased has been designed bearing in mind the coastal conditions of the Baltic Sea, rich in islands; it represents the most up-to-date technology for underwater surveillance and warfare. The procurement of the lightweight torpedo system has been coordinated with the similar procurement by the Swedish Försvarets Materielverket (FMV); their system deliveries are scheduled to take place in 2023-2025. A loan agreement on the torpedo systems will be concluded with the FMV for the years 2019-2023.

 Defence materiel cooperation is a way to implement the defence administration’s strategic goals regarding security of supply and to deepen Nordic cooperation. A user training which will be carried out by the Swedish Navy and the lending of sub-systems, delivered by the FMV, for practising purposes are included in the agreement; this will ensure that the vessels and personnel will be ready for operational activities without delay when the upgrade of the Hamina-class FAC is completed.

New Delays For Finland’ Squadron 2020 Pohjanmaa Corvette Program

Two years ago, the Finnish Defense Ministry selected Rauma Marine Constructions (RMC) and Saab for the building of four new Pohjanmaa-class corvettes within the Squadron 2020 program. It appears now that the program is facing a new, 6 to 12 months, delay because of extra design work.
Nathan Gain  04 Nov 2021

An initial small delay due to protracted contract negotiations was first announced in June 2019 but the program was back on track by mid-august of the same year.

In a new development, the Squadron 2020 Program Director, Major General Lauri Puranen, wrote on the Finnish Armed Forces official blog earlier this week:

“It has now been confirmed by the shipyard that the ship’s design work needs extra time. The estimate of the design delay notified by the yard to the customer is 6-12 months”

“We have always known that building the Pohjanmaa-class is a challenging project. The design work of any warship is a very demanding entity, especially when it is done from a clean sheet and involves several actors. In Finnish conditions, a high-performance warship that meets the requirements of future naval defense means a combination of efficient, partially tailored weapon and sensor and command systems, agility and combat resistance, and of course the ability to operate in year-round conditions”, he added.

The consequences for the construction and commissioning of the vessels are currently being investigated. While all parties will remain committed to managing schedule risks and the repercussions of the delay, the delay is also likely to shift to the completion and deployment schedule.

However, efforts will continue to be made to adhere strictly to the original deployment schedule so that the new squadron will be completed in 2028, the blog says. Of course, the Corona pandemic has brought its own challenges to all aspects of life and society and is certainly one of the factors behind the delay, it adds.

Precisely because of the challenge of the project, a lot of time was set aside for the design of the ship – more than two years. According to the original schedule, shipbuilding was scheduled to begin within 2022. In addition to the design work, during the last couple of years, numerous procurements have been prepared for the class of ships and implemented well in advance due to the long delivery times they require.

In addition to the previously decided procurement of a combat system and surface and anti-aircraft missiles, the German company RENK AG will supply ship’s gear units and power propulsion systems, General Electric (USA) will supply gas turbines and diesel generators will be supplied by MAN Energy Solutions SE (Germany). The Finnish company Koja Marine supplies air conditioning to the ship class and Furuno Finland Oy is responsible for the implementation of the Pohjanmaa-class navigation system.



For the defense administration, however, things appear to be such that a pandemic alone will not explain the prolongation of the planning phase. “We have repeatedly expressed our concern about the delay that has arisen. The design of a modern and technically advanced warship from large lines to details is undeniably a demanding entity, but from the customer’s perspective, the design delay should have been avoided with wider design shoulders“, Puranen comments.

From the point of view of the customer, the Finnish Defense Forces, the situation will become more difficult if the delay begins to affect the Navy’s plans to use and dispose of the fleet’s departing ships.

The Hämeenmaa-class and the Rauma-class are already at the end of their service life and their service life cannot be extended indefinitely. Extending service life is also a cost issue. Although the delay came already in the negotiation phase of the agreements, the current delay is manageable from a defense perspective, and even there is still some room for maneuver.

“From now on, it is absolutely vital that there is no further delay and that it can even be caught up. Close and transparent co-operation between the Defense Administration and the RMC and adherence to the agreed agreement will be key to achieving this goal. It is in the interests of all those involved in the project and, more broadly, national defense“, Puranen concludes.

About Pohjanmaa-Class Corvette



The Pohjanmaa-class corvettes (Squadron 2020 program) will be constructed in Finland. They will be multi role surface combatants with ice breaking capabilities. The construction contract (worth 647.6 million Euros) was awarded to Finnish shipbuilder Rauma Marine Constructions in September 2019. The construction of the four corvettes was set to start in 2022 and end in 2025. Sea trials are expected to begin in 2024. Full operational status of the entire Pohjanmaa-class with the Finnish Navy is expected to be achieved by 2028.

Saab was selected in September 2019 to provide and integrate the combat system and sensors of the corvettes. The vessels will be equipped with ESSM surface to air missiles, Gabriel V anti-ship missiles and Torpedo 47 torpedoes. Kongsberg will equip the vessels with its SS2030 and SD9500 sonars. Patria will supply the Sonac DTS variable depth sonar.

Saab will provide a wide range of systems and solutions for the  Pohjanmaa corvettes, including:

Trackfire Remote Weapon Station
TactiCall integrated communication system
Saab Lightweight Integrated Mast (SLIM)
Sea Giraffe 4A Fixed Face radar
Sea Giraffe 1X radar
Saab’s new lightweight torpedo
Ceros 200 radar and electro-optical director
Saab Naval Laser Warning System
Together with the existing four Hamina-class missile boats that are currently being modernized, the four new corvettes will form the backbone of the Finnish Navy from the mid-2020s. They will replace seven older vessels that have been or are due to be decommissioned: the single Pohjanmaa and two Hämeenmaa-class minelayers as wll as four Rauma-class missile boats.

Pohjanmaa-class Corvette main characteristics

Length: 114 m (374 ft)
Beam: 16 m (52 ft)
Displacement: 3,900 tonnes (3,800 long tons; 4,300 short tons)
Crew: 70 to 120 sailors
