The order, placed in February 2019, will see THIELMANN WEW deliver a single unit for testing and evaluation by the Croatian land forces


THIELMANN WEW has received an order to deliver a self-contained 10,000 liter (2,642 US gallon) water transport and dispensing unit for the Croatian armed forces.

The order, placed in February 2019, will see THIELMANN WEW deliver a single unit for testing and evaluation by the Croatian land forces. Delivery will take place by the end of 2019.

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 liters 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, on this order. Hidraulika Kurelja is prime integrator for a wider land logistics programme for the Croatian military.

Falko Pfeuffer, Head of Defense, THIELMANN WEW, said: ‘This order is a clear signal that THIELMANN WEW continues to retain its position as the market leader for containerized fuel and water supply systems.

‘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.’

THIELMANN WEW will manufacture the unit at its specialist defense unit in Weitefeld, Germany.
