Saab has received a contract to deliver a mass field feeding capability to the South African National Defence Force, the company announced on 20 November.

Under the contract, Saab will supply mobile containerised kitchens systems which consists of 24 50-man systems and 11 200-man systems.

The 200-man system is composed of a utility unit for potable water, waste water and diesel; a storage unit; a reefer unit for cold storage of rations; and a completely outfitted expandable kitchen unit.

Similarly, the 50-man system has a completely outfitted expandable unit, with bladders to deal with the potable and waste water.

The boiling pans, convection ovens and grillers with which the systems are equipped all are based on modern diesel-fired technology. This is a part of the South African military’s efforts to reduce the use of liquefied petroleum gas. The units can draw power from an existing power grid. Alternatively, they can operate as a stand alone system producing its own power from a generator in the kitchen unit.

The project will be executed over a two year period.
