Transport and storage containers

Whether rockets, UAV’s, engines, spare parts or anything else, our transport and storage containers guarantee an efficient and effective storage concept and a safe transport.

Field camp containers

Our accommodation- and sanitary containers are used around the world. The German Army and other civil and military users benefit from our high quality products and technical solutions. Besides this, we are able to offer mobile sentry towers, gas stations and much more.

Naval containers

Ships generally offer little space. Because of this, naval containers are often used as command posts as well as accommodation and storage units.

Protected containers

CHS Spezialcontainer provides fixed and adaptive armored protection solutions. According to NATO STANAG 2280 we cover almost all protection levels by using armor steel and ceramic. Furthermore our 20’ half height container filled with sand or other bulk material guarantees an effective roof-protection.

Water treatment containers

The newest product of CHS Spezialcontainer is a mobile wastewater treatment plant. This plant is engineered in cooperation with the Bremer Overseas And Research Association (BORDA). Based on three mechanical and biological cleaning steps. One Water treatment container is capable of cleaning the sewage of 250 people (30 m³ per day) and can be expanded on a modular basis.

Mobile armories

Our mobile armory is engineered for the storage of small arms. This 20’ container is equipped with interchangeable cabinet systems and a weapon working bench. Of course we can adapt all features to your requirements.
