Recent news

Åkers Krutbruk and FMV presents a new verification method

FMV have together with Åkers Krutbruk developed a small scale mine verification rig to test the impact of a mine blast on equipment inside a vehicle. Its purpose is to make sure equipment stays secure during a mine blast and don't come loose and injure personal inside the vehicle.

The method uses smaller amounts of explosives and together with not having to do a full scale test it becomes a very cost effective method.

You can read more about it in Swedish here.

 

Swedish Defence Minister, Karin Enström, visits Åkers Krutbruk

The Swedish defense minister took the initiative to visit Åkers Krutbruk during early summer. The minister and her team was presented to the latest protection technologies and how they are integrated into vehicles  used today, or tomorrow by Swedish soldiers.

 

The extreme protection capability of the 8x8 Pansarterrängbil 360 (AMV) but also how the thorough qualification and integration is done was presented as an example of protection. The combat vehicle 90 with latest  Add-on armor was used to illustrate the next step.

 

Additionally the status of the Swedish ADS (Active Defence Systsem) - program was presented. 

 

The minister was also updated of the future plans for Åkers Krutbruk as part of IBD Group by the owner of Åkers Krutbruk, Mr. Ulf Deisenroth. The minister had time to talk to and see part of the production team finalizing  deliveries.

 

Afterwards the minister and the CEO of Åkers Krutbruk, Peter Servin, sat down with local media, see attached files.

 

During the visit we also had time for straight forward discussions regarding the defense industry, its role today and the support provided by Swedish authorities.

 

Åkers Krutbruk appreciates the time spent by the Minster and we look forward to other key persons  visiting us.
