В In Ukraine, a heavy demining machine was tested on a training ground

Ukrainian company A3tech, within the scope of certification, conducted tests on a training ground of a heavy DOK-ING MV-10 demining machine, assembled and partially localized in Ukraine.

This is reported by the  Ministry of Economy.

"The MV-10 has been tested for performance in compacted soil and sand. The demining machine was also tested for its ability to clear an area of ​​vegetation up to two meters high and with a trunk diameter of more than 10 centimeters. During the survivability test, the MV-10 withstood five explosions under the working body of the equivalent of the TM-62M anti-tank mine, the report says.

Certification of the machine carried out by specialists of the State Research Institute of Testing and Certification of Weapons and Military Equipment.

It is noted that after receiving the certificate, the manufacturing company will be able not only to establish serial production, but also to provide better service, since the necessary base for this will be in Ukraine.

A3tech has a preliminary order for the manufacture of eight demining machines MV-10. In general, the production capacity can be up to 60 machines per year.

Now 17 DOK-ING MV-10 heavy demining machines are operating in Ukraine. Specialists of the State Emergency Service, the State Emergency Service and the Swiss Mine Action Fund use these machines mainly in the Mykolaiv, Kherson and Kharkiv regions.

«Heavy demining machines significantly speed up the clearing of areas and increase the safety of personnel working in the field. They have proven their effectiveness in the Kharkiv region and in the south of Ukraine. Therefore, I can only welcome the fact that a Ukrainian company has started assembling MV-10 in Ukraine. Already, 40% of the working body for these machines is made in Ukraine, and by the end of the year they plan to increase this figure to 100%. noted the First Deputy Prime Minister – Minister of Economy of Ukraine Yulia Svyridenko.
