Marshall has won a contract to sustain Royal Netherlands Air Force C-130H fleet through to it’s out of service date.

Air Cdre Richard Laurijssen, Director of Sustainment and Logistics & Commander Logistics Centre Woensdrecht said, “The new contract comprises a lot more than previous separate contracts and defines a future collaboration.  It will help to build a joint capability for more predictive maintenance and logistics.  A contract like this can only rest on a strong strategic partnership and that is what I value in particular."

The multi-year total sustainment contract for the C-130H fleet will see Marshall deliver a turn-key solution to the Royal Netherlands Air Force covering aircraft maintenance, engine maintenance and supply chain management. 

Marshall has already carried out a Cockpit Upgrade Programme on the fleet and currently holds the Engineering Support contract.  In the delivery of this contract Marshall will again be working with the local defence industry in the Netherlands.

At the beginning of December Marshall also signed a contract worth in excess of £100 million to supply the next generation of containers to the Dutch Armed Forces under the Defensiebrede Vervanging Operationele Wielvoertuigen, or DVOW programme.
