The DEW was designed and provided by G3 Systems to the Royal Engineers over a decade ago and has delivered sterling service on operations in Afghanistan and the Middle East and in supporting forces training across the world.

Comprising a variety of modular assets that can be utilised together or individually depending upon the specific requirement, to create a fully operational engineering workshop facility in almost any location or environment, the DEW covers the same area as half a football pitch when erected and can be constructed and fully operational in under 24 hours.

Included within the DEW are metal fabrication and blacksmiths modules, carpentry and joinery modules, a logistics, planning and draughtsman module, a building finisher/signwriting and stores module and a fitter machinist module, all with linking shelters.

Additional modules for utilities, equipment and air conditioning fitters, and welding, electrical, heating, and plumbing engineers are provided and a relocatable containerised air conditioning unit ensures a comfortable working environment, whatever the external weather conditions.

The complete workshop is powered via a power distribution system incorporating circuit protection devices, connecting power output by a generator and/or building supply to the required equipment within the various modules/containers.

G3 Systems has provided training to numerous Royal Engineer units across the years. This latest session was successfully delivered to 65 Field Squadron, 35 Engineer Regiment at Kinloss, Scotland.

On this occasion the G3 Systems team deployed to Kinloss to support the established training programme. Unusually this time the training was delivered in reverse order, taking the DEW down before then rebuilding it to leave the users with a constructed system on completion of the training exercise.

The purpose of the training exercise was originally to help prepare 65 Field Squadron for a deployment to carry out construction tasks at BATUS in Canada, but more recently for them to also use the DEW on COVID-19 operations closer to home.
