IMP Aerospace has been awarded a contract by the Norwegian Defense Logistics Organization (NDLO) following an international competitive bidding process for the maintenance of the P-3 Orion Maritime Patrol Aircraft fleet operated by the Royal Norwegian Air Force (RNoAF). This multi-year contract includes additional In-Service Support (ISS) work beyond maintenance inspections and will be performed at IMP’s operations in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
The P-3 Orion aircraft perform strategic patrol missions for the RNoAF in the detection of submarine threats, search and rescue support, littoral surveillance, as well as economic zone and shipping lane protection off the coast of Norway.
“We are very pleased to be awarded this long-term contract for the Royal Norwegian Air Force for the heavy maintenance of their P-3 Orion fleet. IMP Aerospace has developed a close relationship with the RNoAF over the past decade and has a solid working knowledge of their P-3 aircraft maintenance requirements,” Tom Galley, IMP Aerospace Executive VP, stated. IMP says it provides innovative, high value solutions to a variety of domestic and international operators of maritime patrol and ISR capable aircraft, such as the P-3.
