Sustainment Contract Will Run Through 2023
Flensburger Fahrzeugbau Gesellschaft (FFG) has won an extension of its current contract to support the Bundeswehr CBRN Force until 31 December 2023, with an option for a further one year extension.
Awarded after a competitive tender process, the new contract extends the coverage FFG has provided for Bundeswehr CBRN equipment since September 2012. It calls for material management and maintenance of specialized vehicles, including the FUCHS armoured NBC reconnaissance vehicle, the TEP 90 decontamination systems and the HEP 90 semi-trailer. Operating on a 41ha property in Hunsrück, FFG is responsible for functional reliability and security of supply for 3,500 different devices, consisting of 1.5 million components.
FFG has managed the former CBRN material depot in Kappel since 2012, since which point it has been the only service provider to the Bundeswehr in the large machine and defence equipment segment.
