Rheinmetall Denel Munition of South Africa has won several major orders from an international customer for mine clearing equipment and ammunition. In total, the contracts are expected to be worth over EUR90 million.

In March the customer ordered two Plofadder mine clearing systems and accompanying training devices as well as ammunition, with a total value of over EUR28 million. The Plofadder mine clearing system fires rockets to create a ladder-like demolition zone, which is capable of cutting a 160m-long, 9m-wide lane through a minefield.

A further partial order for ammunition has been announced for the second quarter of 2017. This contract will be worth around EUR65 million.
