TENDER REOPENS FOR 150 MILLION EURO MILITARY TRUCK CONTRACT
After its suspension in April, the Ministry of Defence has reopened the tender for the acquisition of 734 new medium and heavy road trucks, in a contract valued at more than 150 million euro.
With several companies already expressing an interest in bidding, this is thought to be one of the most eagerly anticipated contracts for the defence industry suppliers. Many believe that the current supplier Iveco, will be best placed to fulfil this contract.
According to the technical specification of the tender, the aim is to provide a range of vehicles between 2014 and 2019, able to carry a range of loads and weights.
Within the framework of the contract, the Army will receive 523 trucks, the Air Force will gain 29, and there are 36 for the Navy, plus 146 for the UME military emergency support.
According to the statement of requirements, the maximum price of the average truck is 172,720 euro overall, with the most expensive version, a crane-backed vehicle, valued at 333,160 euro.
The tender process will close on the 31st of July, with the 25th set aside as the final date for requesting information.
