Leonardo confirms Qatari NH90 order

21 August 2018

Leonardo announced on 20 August that the contract to supply Qatar with 28 NH90 helicopters had been “made effective” after it received an initial payment.

Qatar first announced the order during the DIMDEX show held in Doha in March 2014, saying it covered 12 tactical transport (TTH) and 10 naval (NFH) variants.

The order was announced again four years later during DIMDEX 2018, when Leonardo revealed that it covered 16 TTH and 12 NFH helicopters, with options for six more of each type.

Leonardo is acting as prime contractor for the project that it said was worth more than EUR3 billion (USD3.4 billion).
