Water container specialists THIELMANN WEW will supply the Croatian Armed Forces with a self-contained 10,000 litre water transport and dispensing unit.
The order, which was placed in February 2019, will see THIELMANN deliver a single unit for testing and evaluation by the Croatian land forces. Delivery will take place by the end of this year.
Based on the company’s Heavy Vehicle Module (Water) concept, the Multi Water Tank Container is a self-contained ‘drop and go’ drinkable water storage and distribution system fitted within a low profile 20ft ISO frame.
With integrated heating, pumping and 2.4kW generator system, the system can pump 150 litres per minute and can be transported on military logistics vehicles with DROPS/Hooklift capability. The system requires no site preparation prior to its deployment and can provide a stand-alone capability or be integrated into a wider camp infrastructure.
THIELMANN WEW will work with its Croatian partner, Hidraulika Kurelja, which is prime integrator for a wider land logistics programme for the Croatian military.
“This is the first time the Croatian armed forces will have the opportunity to assess our equipment and we are confident that this work, with the support of our valued Croatian partner, Hidraulika Kurelja, will lead to a further order for additional units,” said Falko Pfeuffer, head of Defence at THIELMANN WEW.
THIELMANN WEW will manufacture the unit at its specialist defence unit in Weitefeld, Germany.
