Power for the Army


RUAG Defence is the strategic technology partner of the Swiss Army. Its remit includes carrying out maintenance on a wide range of power generating units. To date, RUAG Defence has performed final assembly on over 15,000 of these units and delivered them to the Swiss Army.

All Swiss Army power generating units are checked and, if requested by the customer, customised by RUAG Defence before they are delivered to the Armed Forces Logistics Organisation (LBA). Service, repairs, and diagnostics are carried out quickly and in an expert manner. RUAG's area of expertise also includes integrating the units in a wide variety of vehicles.

The power unit area of RUAG Defence offers a unique mobile measurement and testing laboratory. In addition, RUAG performs enhanced checks as a neutral company, including climate and altitude tests, noise measurements, rain simulation tests, and endurance tests. All measurements are recorded, logged, and analysed using a specialised computer system.

In addition to the Swiss Army, RUAG's customers also include the Swiss Protection Support Service and Peace Support Worldwide – SWISSINT. The company also receives an increasing number of international orders thanks to its in-depth expertise.
