Dutch DMO extends Rheinmetall ammo partnership

19th June 2019 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Rheinmetall will continue to supply ammunition to the Dutch procurement authority, the Defence Materiel Organisation (DMO), under a renewed partnership agreement announced on 18 June.

The new agreement will run until the end of 2030. It will ensure that the Dutch military has a steady supply of safe, secure ammunition, including for weapons supplied by the company such as the CV9035 infantry fighting vehicle and the PzH2000 self-propelled howitzer.

Working closely with the DMO, Rheinmetall will optimise ammunition production planning, boosting economic efficiency. In turn, Rheinmetall will keep DMO actively informed concerning forthcoming production possibilities, resulting in cost savings and also facilitating the Dutch budget planning process.

The partnership also promotes ammunition enhancement as well as performance-oriented logistics, such as recycling or modification of existing ammunition, components and ammunition packaging.

As part of the partnership agreement, an extension of the existing framework contracts for the supply of 155mm ammunition, 35mm medium-calibre ammunition and 40mm ROSY cartridges to DMO will also be sought.
