Global Clearance Solutions (GCS) got off to a busy start this year: In January, the German Army delivered the first of seven complete MineWolf systems to our factory in the South of Germany for regular overhaul work.
The seven systems were delivered in 2010/2011 and have given the German Army an urgently needed C-IED capability for the ISAF mission in Afghanistan. The systems were deployed in Afghanistan from 2011 to 2014 and have proven to be an effective tool in neutralising Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) laid by the insurgents.
GCS is a long-time and trusted partner of the German Army and has fulfilled a number of maintenance contracts in recent years. Thanks to those contracts as well as an outstanding customer relationship, GCS plans to do the regular overhaul for a total of seven complete systems from the MineWolf 240 series until the year 2022. The systems consist of seven MineWolf 240 platforms with a variety of attachments as well as the required workshop infrastructure.
