MineWolf Systems Mine Clearance Vehicles for Irish Defence Force

MineWolf - Part of Pearson Engineering

Earlier in 2012, a pair of MW240 Mini Minewolf mine clearance vehicles and flail attachments were supplied to the Irish Defence Force. The flails effectively remove vegetation and enable the vehicles to be deployed as required across the globe.

Mine Clearance Vehicles

Along with the mine clearance vehicles, MineWolf Systems delivered training (in February and March at Ireland's Defence Training School) for mechanics and Irish Defence Force vehicle operators. The courses were delivered by a pair of MineWolf Systems instructors to ten students from the Irish Army, who had a broad span of hands-on knowledge and mechanical understanding.
