WFEL showcases its range of rapidly deployable mobile bridges for military and disaster relief at NIDV 2022 in Rotterdam.
News Release, Stockport, 15 November 2022: WFEL is showcasing its military bridging systems at NIDV in Rotterdam on 18th November 2022.
As seen in Disaster Relief operations following severe flooding in Europe, WFEL’s rapidly deployable military bridging systems are increasingly called upon for deployment to provide emergency temporary infrastructure during natural disasters.
WFEL is discussing its range of rapidly deployable bridging systems alongside colleagues from KMW during this year’s NIDV event in Rotterdam. WFEL’s DSB Dry Support Bridge and the MGB Medium Girder Bridge are already held in inventory by many militaries worldwide.
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.
Both DSB Dry Support Bridges and MGB Medium Girder Bridges have been proven on operations worldwide, including in Iraq and Afghanistan.
