Marshall to supply containers to Netherlands

12th December 2018 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group has received a contract from the Dutch Defence Materiel Organisation to supply container systems for the Dutch armed forces, the company announced on 6 December.

The acquisition is part of the Netherlands' Defensiebrede Vervanging Operationele Wielvoertuigen programme to update its armed forces with new vehicles, containers and support equipment.

Under the contract worth over £100 million, Marshall will supply more than 1400 containers over the next five years. The contract comprises two main elements, the production of the various containers and a full support package, which includes a full availability-based fleet management package, together with a training package.

The container systems include C2 shelters, workshops, controlled atmosphere and basic stores units. As part of the design work, Marshall will provide a new expandable container which uses lighter materials but maintains the strength of its in-service Matrix Expandable products.

Marshall Aerospace Netherlands in Leiden will provide engineering and supply chain management for the contract.
