According to Spiegel Online http://www.spiegel.de/wirtschaft/untern ... 33056.html (German only) the Norwegian Navy ordered four Type 212 based submarines at ThyssenKrupp, which are supposed to be in service from 2025 on.
If I understand it correctly, the order is be placed for 2019, probably the year construction will start.

The deal is that The Norwegian submarine will be build together with German submarines, with the same systems/equipments, etc. but with an Norwegian twist to it.

A former commander of the Norwegian submarine force say:
"Negative with this, is the submarine limited missile capability. The French company are supposed to be able to give dedicated missile silo on the their submarine design. something that are a must have on a submarine. But overall the submarine is as good as it can get. With good internal space on a submarine that are in the correct size for"
