Perhaps this news release refers to it - it certainly looks like a Griffon 8000!
"The Swedish Defense Materiel Administration - Forsvarets Materielverk (FMV) - placed an order July 7 (2005) with Griffon Hovercraft of the United Kingdom for three Griffon 8000 Hovercraft. The hovercraft were procured for the Royal Swedish Navy's (RSN's) four amphibious battalions and will operate with the amphibious forces' Combatboat 90 squadrons as well as other international forces when deployed in an international environment."
