Combat forces need lots of water
and fuel, often stretching logis-
tic capabilities to breaking point.
German firm WEW knows how to deal with this prob-
lem, as is shown in its spectrum of
handling solutions for liquids.
One estimate put the fuel require-
ment at 77 per cent of the total
logistic load during peak times of
the Afghanistan campaign – some
2,000 trucks a day.
“This is a large number of journeys
where lives were put at consider-
able risk in a war zone,” said Dr Ulrich
Bernhardt, WEW’s chief executive.
WEW uses purpose-designed
modules to handle water, fuel, lubri-
cants and other liquids safely on a
variety of vehicles, from small MRAPs
to high-mobility 8×8 vehicles.
