Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group has despatched the first batch of container systems being supplied to the Dutch armed forces under a contract signed at the end of 2018.

The units will form part of the Netherlands’ Dutch Defensiebrede Vervanging Operationele Wielvoertuigen (DVOW) programme, which is delivering new vehicles, containers and support equipment.

The initial warehouse container units will be used to train operators in handling the containerised systems and to fulfil a training commitment for their vehicles.

These are the first of 1400 container systems to be delivered over the next five years. Other systems will include command and control and medical container systems, workshops, controlled atmosphere and basic stores units.

Marshall will also provide a ten year fully integrated availability support package for the containers.
