Following participation at the DSEI exhibition in London last month, WFEL is attending the AUSA 2021 event in Washington next week.


Press Release, Stockport, 06 October 2021: Following participation at the DSEI exhibition in London last month, leading Military Bridging Systems supplier WFEL is attending the AUSA event in Washington next week (11-13 October) to promote the ‘dual use’ versatility of its rapidly deployable modular bridging systems.

Disaster Relief operations following severe flooding in Europe recently saw WFEL’s rapidly deployable military bridging systems deployed to provide emergency temporary infrastructure during natural disasters in both Germany and Turkey. Both MGB Medium Girder Bridges and DSB Dry Support Bridges were deployed

WFEL will be discussing the range of rapidly deployable bridging systems alongside colleagues from parent company, KMW. WFEL’s DSB Dry Support Bridge and the MGB Medium Girder Bridge are already held in inventory by many militaries worldwide. The US Military have been users of WFEL’s bridging systems for many years, with well over 100 Dry Support Bridging systems in their inventory.

At 120 Military Load Classification (MLC), the DSB can get traffic and supplies moving over a 46-metre gap in less than 90 minutes using just eight soldiers and a single launch vehicle: crucial in rapidly escalating combat, homeland defence or disaster relief scenarios – when every second counts.
