It goes steadily forward to obtain orders for Danish companies in the production of the new F-35 fighter aircraft, as Denmark buy 27 of.
It assesses Henrik Lundstein, who is head of Kampflykontoret under the department of defense Equipment and Indkøbsstyrelse (FMI).
- When I look at my colleagues around, so Denmark is full with. We get it, as we could expect at the present time, he says.
As a partner country in the development of the plane are Danish companies to compete for contracts on parts for production and maintenance of the more than 3000 F-35's, which is commissioned worldwide.
According to Henrik Lundstein has so far resulted in the Danish orders for about four million dollars, and he expects even more in the coming years.
That means hundreds of jobs and resulting tax revenues, which may be attached directly to the F-35 project.
But at least it is just as important, according to Henrik Lundstein, to the Danish defence industry with orders come with on a technological wave, which will be important in the future.
- It means going forward for Denmark, that we get the opportunity to bid on other high-tech areas, because we have built up the necessary knowledge in F-35 production, he says.
When you talk about the F-35 and the Danish defence industry, it is impossible not to mention Terma.
The middle of denmark radar - and våbendelsproducent account for the vast majority of the orders.
Executive vice president Steen Lynenskjold tells that the Terma has so far received orders for $ 3.7 billion in connection with the F-35-kampflyene.
- So it is a crucial business for us. It is a big part of our turnover today comes from the project, he says.
Terma has today in Grenaa and Aarhus 550 employees working on the orders, which relate to the kampflyet.
- in Addition, the next ten years expect to get additional revenues from the F-35 aircraft for about 800 million dollars per year - i.e. around 8 billion crowns, says Steen Lynenskjold.
Denmark pay a total of 16.4 billion dollars for the planes, if the total costs, however, is expected to run up about 60 billion dollars over the next 30 to 40 years.
the first of the Danish aircraft were originally scheduled to be delivered 4. april at a military base in Arizona, the UNITED states, but because of the coronaudbruddet will the delivery probably deferred, assess the FMI.
