Australia seeks engineering support vehicles
The Australian Department of Defence has issued a request for tender (RfT) for engineering support vehicles including earthmoving and material handling equipment.
Under Project Land 8120 Phase 1, the department is seeking a suite of modified commercial off-the-shelf solutions with maximum Australian industry involvement.
The new equipment will replace a wide range of existing engineering platforms including bulldozers, concrete batching plant, cranes, excavators, front-end loaders, graders, rock crushers, rollers, skid-steer loaders and telescopic handlers.
The equipment will be used to support multiple engineering activities, including earthworks, route development and maintenance, airfield construction and repair, port operations, supply and distribution and beach operations.
The RfT closes on 30 July 2019.
