MILIPOL PARIS 2017, November 20th 2017 – Centigon France, a sister company of Centigon Security Group, a world-leading provider of civil and military armoured vehicles today announced that it has been selected by SCANIA for the shielding of truck cabins to equip the Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization (DALO).
The initial contract is for the acquisition of a large fleet of military tactical (400 to 500) and civilian (300 to 400) trucks for international military operations and driver training in Denmark. More than a hundred will be equipped with armoured driver cabins that can withstand ballistic threats and the explosion of mines and IEDs; cabins will be available in several protection levels according to STANAG 4569.
In order to design and manufacture the appropriate protection, CENTIGON has relied on several decades of experience in the field of shielding and the integration of ballistic materials, but also on innovative technologies such as digital simulation which makes it possible to test the resistance of the cabin upstream of manufacturing. Centigon is also responsible for real destructive tests and will integrate Danish Armed Forces furnished equipment.
"We are extremely proud to be associated with SCANIA a world renowned truck manufacturer for such a large-scale military project," said Franck BAUCHER, Chief Executive Officer of CENTIGON France. "This is a strategic order that proves CENTIGON's ability to collaborate with OEMs to meet the expectations of very demanding defence customers.”
The framework agreement is for seven years and includes a range of support, maintenance and repair services, the supply spare parts and training and education services. Armoured cab deliveries start in 2019 and will be completed in 2021.
