Environics awarded contract to supply CBRN capabilities of the Finnish Navy’s Pohjanmaa class multi-role corvettes

Concept 3d rendering of the Finnish Navy's future Pohjanmaa-class corvettes

Posted on September 8, 2022

These new corvettes will be delivered to the Finnish Navy, a branch of The Finnish Defence Forces, from 2025 to 2027, and will serve anti-surface warfare, anti-air warfare, anti-submarine warfare, surveillance and mine-laying missions. They are expected to be in full operational status by 2029.

Pohjanmaa Class multi-role corvettes will have an overall length of approximately 114 m, beam of about 16 m, and the maximum draught will be about 5m making them the largest Finnish surface combatants since the 1930s coastal defence ships. Each vessel will have a crew of about 70.

The CMS (Combat Management System) Saab 9LV on board will incorporate weapons, associated systems, such as Environics’ EnviScreen Operix, and surveillance sensors, such as Environics’ CBRN monitoring devices ENVI BioScout and ChemProDM.

Together with the existing four Hamina-class missile boats, the four new Pohjanmaa Class Corvettes will form the backbone of the Finnish Navy from the mid-2020s onwards, replacing “…the Navy’s decommissioned and soon-to-be-decommissioned combat vessel capability with capabilities meeting the requirements of future operating environments.”
