Development and Design

Our systems are designed to operate worldwide and withstand the harshest handling conditions that can be associated with road, rail, sea and extreme climate operation. Over the last five decades, WEW has developed a deep understanding of the rigours involved with multimodal transport and designed our containers to overcome them.

As part of our testing programme we regularly run a series of impact tests that are in line with ISO 1496/3.

Our state-of-the-art design office is equipped with the latest technology CAD and Solid Works software. Our designers’ skills are demonstrated by the number of worldwide patents that WEW has been granted, 53 in the last 12 years alone. To support our CAD work, WEW uses FEA (Finite Element Analysis) tools extensively in conjunction with an institution that also works with one of Germany‘s leading car manufacturers. WEW also has substantial experience in ILS areas such as dynamic load stability analysis and codification.

Each of our systems can be supplied with a full set of technical documentation including 3D-drawings, parts list and maintenance schedules and other ILS packages concomitant with defence, oilfield and other clients’ requirements.

WEW has leveraged these technologies to create an extremely flat, thin-walled tank for the United States Army. The "Camel" Unit Water Pod System replaces the 30-year-old "Buffalo" unit. Besides the complex tank design, the system includes heating, insulation, pumping, with options to provide chilling and water bottling and packing systems for further distribution. A similar module has been developed and is in service with the German Bundeswehr.
