Earlier this month, Michel Bonnefis, CEO of NBC-Sys, part of french company Nexter, and Ian Marsh, President of the Canadian company Dew Engineering & Development ULC, signed a major contract for the design and production of six personnel, vehicle and equipment decontamination systems for the Canadian army. NBC-Sys will provide heart of the system: the decontaminant, mixing and spraying equipment
     

The contract was won following an international call for tender issued by the PWGSC (Public Works and Government Services Canada) and also includes the operational readiness services for 5 years, with a possible extension to 20 years, plus an option for three more systems.

NBC-Sys will supply the heart of the system, since the decontaminant, the mixing and spraying equipment and the decontamination systems for individuals and infantry equipment will be made in France.

According to Dew Engineering & Development ULC's press release, the systems are packaged in two 20-foot ISO containers and one flatrack to provide a complete self-contained and self-powered decontamination capability. The flatrack incorporates an elevating operator platform to apply CBRN decontaminant onto trucks, Armored Personnel Carriers and Tanks as well as buildings and aircraft. Personnel decontamination is performed inside a rapid deployment tent system. When carried on trucks the system will dispense decontaminant on roadways.

With this latest success, NBC-Sys has again confirmed its know-how and the competitiveness of its CBRN decontamination products. The contract will also help the company to gain a firm foothold on the North American market.
