New Integrated Logistics Services by WEW

WEW, a THIELMANN company, has launched expanded Integrated Logistics Services for the support and refurbishment of tank container systems at its newly updated and expanded Weitefeld facility.The company’s expanded comprehensive through life support services include deployed field service, support and upgrade options, full refurbishment, and spare parts supply for both military and civil customers.

Work includes repair of damage to structural elements, such as head frames, longitudinal rails, tank-body and attachment parts. Sealings are replaced as required, wear and tear checks are carried out on all components, and hydraulic and/or electric equipment is checked and repaired, including integrated heating/cooling equipment, valve control, pumps, electronic devices and power generators. The tanks are then typically pressure-tested and repainted if required. Repaired, upgraded and refurbished units are then tested and certified before their return to the customer.

Depending on the work carried out servicing can extend a tank’s usability by thirty months or five years; extensive refurbishment can extend the unit’s life by a further ten to twenty years. WEW has worked with a number of military customers on tank servicing and refurbishment including the US Army and German Bundeswehr, with orders ranging from a single unit, a series of units, or multi-annual framework contracts.
