DVD helps GSV IPT improve risk assessment on operations

DVD - Defence Equipment And Support (DE&S)
: 18 April, 2008  (Company News)

Industry networking event solves long-term challenge in rapid time
Commanders on operations will soon be able to make much better informed decisions relating to the safety of fuel carrying vehicles, fitted with a wide range of Urgent Operational Requirements (UORs), whilst on operations. The improved level of Risk assessment has been made possible following the introduction of TRL Compliance to General Support Vehicles Integrated Project Team (GSV IPT) at DVD last year.

“DVD helped us overcome a long-standing challenge that we had been previously unable to resolve,” comments Alison Henry, GSV IPT Leader. “Since 2005 we have been trying to sort out the issue of integrating a range of complex UORs into fuel carrying vehicles deployed on operations. With extensive, complex and detailed European legislation affecting the transportation of dangerous goods, we had searched unsuccessfully for two years to find an appropriately qualified subject matter expert who could help us with this issue. However, a meeting at DVD enabled us to find a suitable partner in just one day.”

DVD is one of the most important events in the defence equipment calendar. It provides a unique opportunity for the defence community to meet, discuss, learn about and experience the equipment and support that is critical to the success of the UK’s Armed Forces. This year, DVD will be bigger and better with eight IPTs and Groups, including GSV IPT, participating. GSV IPT is a through life IPT responsible for the procurement and in-service management of heavy logistics vehicles with a payload of four tonnes and above.

Since DVD last year, GSV IPT and TRL Compliance have conducted a series of tests on two types of fuel carrying vehicles. This work aims to better understand the risks associated with fitting a range of UORs in an environment where, due to the high ambient temperature, there is an increased likelihood of a vapour hazard. Recommendations based on the results will be passed on to front line commanders as soon as they are finalised.
