The Defence Forces Logistics Command and the Finnish Navy, together with the Defence Forces' strategic partner Millog, started preparations for acquiring the capabilities needed to maintain and service Squadron 2020 vessels.

The Ministry of Defence authorised the Finnish Defence Forces to order project support from Millog Ltd to support the project group 20172021. The Millog experts in the project group will work under the guidance of Defence Forces personnel. The project support is connected to Squadron 2020's construction development and has a total value of 4.6 million euros. The support is included in the Squadron 2020 total budget.

Millog's support enables creating the necessary maintenance and service capabilities already in the squadron's planning and construction phases. The project ensures the transfer of knowledge from the planning phase to all the way through the life cycle of Squadron 2020. At the same time the experts are supporting the creation of the capability and for their their part ensure that the project advances.
