Rheinmetall Denel Munition to upgrade production unit

South Africa-based defence company Rheinmetall Denel Munition, a subsidiary of German group Rheinmetall, has won an industrial plant engineering contract.

South Africa-based defence company Rheinmetall Denel Munition, a subsidiary of German group Rheinmetall, has won an industrial plant engineering contract.

Under the €13m ($14.6m) contract, the company is responsible for the upgrade of an undisclosed customer’s existing production plant. The client is an ‘established, longstanding customer’ of the company.

The Plant Engineering unit of the South-African based company designs, produces, deploys and commissions process equipment and industrial production plants.

Additionally, the company offers courses in explosives engineering and training in understanding and familiarising the behaviour and characteristics of the product. This allows for safe use of the explosives.

The advanced capabilities of Rheinmetall Denel Munition in plant engineering allow it to support its customers to make effective, diverse and safe ordnance and demilitarised products.

The company has customers and partners in more than 30 countries.

Rheinmetall Denel Munition CEO Jan-Patrick Helmsen said: “We are proud of being able to meet the localisation requirements of our many partners worldwide, and of helping to create sovereign capabilities.

“This strengthens our relationship and long-term partnership with clients around the globe.”

The modernisation is expected to commence soon and conclude by next year.

Earlier this month, Germany’s Federal Office for Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support (BAAINBw) placed a major order with Rheinmetall for logistic vehicles.

Separately, Rheinmetall Canada and Lockheed Martin Canada joined forces to bid for the Canadian Army Land Vehicle Crew Training System (LVCTS) programme.
