Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group (MADG) reached a hugely significant milestone with the on-schedule delivery of its 500th container-system to the Dutch Armed Forces.
MADG is developing and delivering 1,600 container systems as part of the Dutch Defensiebrede Vervanging Operationele Wielvoertuigen (DVOW) programme to update the Dutch Armed Forces with new vehicles, containers and support equipment. This is one of the largest programmes that MADG’s Land Systems Business Unit is supporting.
The 500th container was a sub-variant of a workshop maintenance system, designed to be integrated with Scania Gryphus vehicles and deployed operationally.
In total, the contract will see MADG deliver more than 1,600 container systems in a five year period, as well as providing in-country support for the systems via a maintenance control in their Netherlands office until the mid-2030s.
DVOW Senior Project Manager Ian Ray commented:
“We are so proud to deliver these systems for our Dutch customer. It’s been a massive team effort and our focus on keeping up deliveries through such a testing period has pulled us all together. All the way from our engineering team, supply chain and supply chain partners, operations, training, finance and commercial to our final quality checks we continue to perform and overcome significant challenges.”
