Deployable machine shop delivered to UK MoD on time

Marshall Land Systems
: 16 June, 2009  (Company News)
The first three Deployable Machine Shops (DMS) have been delivered on time by Marshall Specialist Vehicles (MSV), part of Cambridge based Marshall Land Systems, to the Ministry of Defence for user trials.
During the company’s proving programme the DROPS compatible standard 20 ft ISO container was tested for tilt – to ensure everything remained in place – loaded onto the back of the carrying vehicle and evaluated for performance at the extremes of environment.



“The delivery of the first three DMS is a significant milestone in the programme. To deliver to time and to specification is a tribute to the whole project team working together – the user, the MoD Project Team and MSV,” said Peter Callaghan, Chief Executive of Marshall Land Systems. “This ability to deliver a quality solution as promised is core to the experience that our customers have come to expect from a company celebrating its centenary this year.”



Over forty Deployable Machine Shops (DMS) are to be supplied during 2009 by MSV to be used by Royal Marines, REME, Royal Engineer and Royal Air Force mechanical and electrical engineers. The units will be deployed wherever engineering support is required. The contract was announced in November 2008.



The DMS will enable the maintenance specialists to carryout front line support milling, turning and finishing mechanical parts and provide space for basic testing and repair of electrical equipment and servicing of much of the complex equipment now in service.



The units have been designed for easy deployment by road, rail, air (by C-130), or sea to wherever they are required in the world.



The shelter will be on display in the DS&TE area at DVD being held at the Millbrook Proving Ground on 24 and 25 June 2009.
