BAE Systems Awarded Contract to Refurbish CV90 Vehicles for Sweden

via Press Release
The company’s work will include refurbishing the chassis and upgrading the vehicle’s survivability and turrets, as well as enhancing combat system performance. Together, these efforts will help increase the vehicles’ lifespan in support of Army capabilities.

“This is a very important program for BAE Systems and the Swedish Army,” said Lena Gillström, managing director of BAE Systems Weapons Systems in Karlskoga, which builds the turrets. “With this refurbishment and the introduction of the new Battlefield Management System, these vehicles will take a step into the era of digitized defense to strengthen the Army’s capability to meet future threats.”

BAE Systems will work closely with the customer throughout the program. Work starts immediately with deliveries beginning in 2018 and running through 2020.
So they're just doing a version of the USMC AAV survivability upgrade but only to newer vehicles.  Additionally they're getting rolling now.  Impressive.
