Embraer and the Netherlands Industries for Defence & Security (NIDV) signed Thursday a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) during the 34th NIDV Exhibition for Defense and Security (NEDS 2023). The signing of the MoU represents a key element in the strategic relationship developed between Embraer and the Netherlands, covering ongoing initiatives associated with the C-390 Millennium and A-29 Super Tucano.

The MoU between Embraer and NIDV adds to Embraer’s existing partnerships and strategic relationships in the Netherlands while structuring a joint framework aimed at exploring additional opportunities aligned with the priorities of the Netherlands’ Defense Industry Strategy.

These may include services and the development of new capabilities within Embraer's existing projects, further contributing to the development and application of military knowledge, technologies, and industrial capabilities in the country. Contributions from the Dutch ecosystem to the supply chain of the Embraer C-390 program for export markets will remain a central goal.

“The collaboration with Embraer is important for the NIDV and its members. Embraer is a forward-leaning OEM with a strong focus on innovation and new ideas to contribute to the operational readiness of their platforms. I am convinced that Embraer has added value for the Netherlands Defense Technical and Industrial Base,” said Hans Huigen, Director of the NIDV.

“We are pleased to deepen our partnership with NIDV. We are confident that the collaboration strategies under this MoU will bring further value to the Dutch defense and security ecosystem, including knowledge institutes, and the business community across different fields,” said Bosco da Costa Junior, President and CEO, Embraer Defense & Security.

NIDV’S contributions have deepened Embraer’s collaboration with the Netherlands defense, technical and industrial base, which are aligned with the policies of the Netherlands Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy. The partnership focuses on developing innovative solutions in defense and at supporting the C-390 Millennium multi-mission platform. This agreement follows in line with several other MoUs in place, involving technological and industrial partners like Fokker Services Group and MultiSIM, and research institutes such as the Royal Netherlands Aerospace Centre (Royal NLR) and the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO).
