HELSINKI (Reuters) - Finland will extend until 2023 an agreement with French defence electronics group Thales (TCFP.PA) for the maintenance of remote and centralized control of equipment fleets, the defence ministry said in a statement on Monday.

The agreement is part of a wider air defence maintenance framework, the ministry said, adding the total value for the contract stood at up to 20 million euros during 2018-2023.

The maintenance work will include KAVA, a stationary radar system for remote control and overhead elevation and KEVA2010, a radar system from Thales 2009, which constitutes the airborne control hull.
