Troop production employs many

On an annual basis, the Nyland Brigade trains approximately 1500 conscripts, of which approximately one percent are women. The brigade employs just under 200 persons, including about thirty civilians. In addition to this, around sixty people work in different supporting tasks needed by the brigade, including e.g. catering, health care and maintenance of facilities and areas.  

The garrison area is situated in Dragsvik, 90 km west of Helsinki, within a stone’s throw of Ekenäs. Ekenäs is the administrative centre of the town of Raseborg. 

The Nyland Brigade is led by the Brigade Commander. The organization consists of a Headquarters, two Battalions and a Logistics Centre. The Battalions are the Vasa Coastal Jaeger Battalion and the Ekenäs Coastal Battalion.
