The initial procurement, valued at some US$13.2 million, provided a Role 2 Enhanced Field Hospital, comprising some 54 tents, a medical incinerator and medical equipment ranging from stethoscopes to x-ray machines and a telemedicine system. An additional 19 tents were procured to form the basis for a Role 2 Basic Hospital.

G3 Systems has provided the medical equipment and incinerator while Utilis manufactured the tents and provided the supporting infrastructure. Production commenced in June 2020 with delivery to the customer completed in March 2021. All hospital infrastructure and medical equipment was consolidated and packaged at Utilis’ facility at Ennery, near Metz. A full set of technical documentation and a comprehensive training package was compiled by G3 Systems and provided to the Belgian Armed Forces end user.

Following the completion of the initial equipment procurement phase, a 10-year support service has now commenced. G3 Systems will deploy a team of Field Service Engineers (FSEs) to provide maintenance support for the Belgian MOD on training and operational deployments, coupled with routine maintenance, spares provisioning and options for further equipment procurement. The anticipated additional value to G3 Systems is US$4 million, while operational and training deployments may also see this increase.

G3 Systems’ Capture Manager, Andy Francis said: “We have worked with Utilis on past projects and were delighted to see the team complete this work. G3 Systems’ ability to source and procure the medical equipment for the hospital and our experience of deploying FSEs into hostile operational areas were the capabilities Utilis needed to build the winning team. We are now looking to market this capability to other militaries seeking deployable field hospital capability solutions.”
