Modular fuel systems for the defence sector

WEW’s fuel storage and dispensing systems for defence are available in payloads ranging from 2,000L to 45,000L for transport on low-profile 4×4 vehicles up to large 10×10 logistics trucks.

These self-contained fuel systems are fitted with integrated pumping systems, providing all equipment needed to store and dispense fuel as part of a vehicle-mounted transportable solution, including ILHS / DROPS / PLS or as a ‘drop and go’ camp, vehicle, and aircraft fuelling solution. The double-shelled self-bunded stainless tanks require no site preparation, fulfil all environmental requirements, and are designed to dispense fuel within minutes of their arrival on site.

Since 2000, WEW’s fuel solutions have been delivered to German, UK, Belgian, Saudi, Austrian, Lithuanian, Estonian, Slovenian and Irish Armed Forces.

Modular and deployable water container systems

WEW’s water container solutions are designed to provide potable water for deployed operations, ranging from 2,000L to 40,000L. Tanks can be equipped with onboard filtration / reverse-osmosis, heating, cooling, automatic chlorination, UV radiation and pressure-regulating accumulators to provide for the transport, storage, and purification of potable water.

Compatible with on-board vehicle cranes, ILHS/PLS/DROPS or forklift handling systems, WEW’s water container systems provide a complete and deployable logistics solution for 4×4 vehicle/trailers, right up through medium and heavy vehicle-mounted to a complete potable water ‘drop and go’ camp installation.

WEW’s water container solutions have been delivered to the US Army, German, Swedish, Belgian, Slovenian, Lithuanian, Irish and UAE Armed Forces.

We offer payload ranges between 1,000L and 45,000L and specialise in the supply of bespoke products usually within, but not limited to, an ISO footprint. Our expertise extends to the welding and manipulating high-value alloys, including Hastelloy and Duplex.
