New Delhi : With an eye on Indian market, German company WEW will be displaying its niche product -- Light Vehicle Module (LVM) – in the upcoming DefExpo in New Delhi next week. The company feels LVM can be used by Indian military for transportation of integral fuel or water or other hazardous chemicals on easy and difficult terrains.
Fitted with integral cooling, preservation and pumping, LVM is a 3000 litre module which can be fitted to a half size standard ISO frame for easy transportation or can be directly mounted onto the logistic variants of 4 x 4 or 6 x 6 patrol vehicle to provide integral fuel or water for deploying forces.
“WEW has a long and wide experience of providing fluid logistics solutions across defence, homeland security, chemical, nuclear, oil and gas where our skills in providing solutions with high levels of integrity are paramount. We believe the potential in the Indian market for solutions is very real, especially in the areas where high quality levels are critical. It is this expectation of the market that has led to us teaming with TATA Motors for marketing and local manufacture purposes in India,” said Dr Ulrich Bernhardt, Chief Executive of WEW.
Alongside the LVM is a display of the company’s ISO based modular fuel and water solutions. These are designed as complete systems with purification, pumps, chlorination, filters, insulation, or heating as required to make them fit for purpose. The systems are designed to be transported and operated throughout both civil and military supply chains anywhere in the world.
In fact, a similar size trailer mounted removable unit has recently entered service with the German Bundeswehr, while in America WEW has teamed with Choctaw Defense to develop the Camel, another trailer mounted removable solution.
