South Africa –International company, ELW Global Limited (ELW), has been awarded a contract to supply the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) with six Diesel Field Kitchens (DFKs). The award to supply the trailer mounted Diesel Field Kitchens follows the successful delivery of Diesel Field Kitchens to the South African Air Force (SAAF) in the same year.
The SANDF are deploying these Diesel Field Kitchens to the Democratic Republic of Congo in support of the United Nations Organization Stabilization Mission (MONUSCO). With the Malawi Defence Force having recently taken delivery of 8 similar units, the ELW Diesel Field Kitchen is established as the trailer mounted catering solution of choice for this UN Peace Keeping Mission..
With a proven track record in delivering field kitchens and providing catering solutions to companies and projects in the most inhospitable environments, the company has already supplied a further 24 units to the Defence Forces of Burkina Faso, Togo, Mali, Niger, Guinea and Benin who have deployed these units in support of the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA). The ELW Global DFK is also in long term operation in Somalia and Darfur.
The ELW Global DFK is designed to cook a balanced daily requirement for up to 250/300 soldiers, providing three meals a day. The large cooking plates and the integrated oven are individually temperature controlled so that different cooking styles, roasting, stewing, frying and baking can be performed simultaneously.
ELW Global is expanding its catering product line. Recently, it began manufacturing a commercially viable, low-emissions diesel stove which can be integrated into modular buildings, prefabricated buildings, low cost houses, community centres, schools and hospitals. The company has already taken orders for these stand alone stoves and is currently in negotiations with Disaster Relief Organizations throughout Africa.
