Following sign off by the Royal Netherlands DMO, the first batch of certified ProTEK® HTM (ROPS) is underway for delivery to Scania Zwolle in the Netherlands.
The ProTEK® HTM (ROPS) are for mounting on the Scania 150kn 8x8 trucks, many of which will be in the troop-carrying variant. They include 4 x 4-person ROPS units with individual weapon mounts and Dutch ProTEK® Light crew seats with quick release 4-point harness restraints.
The truck element of the Royal Netherlands Armed Forces DVOW program is just the latest platform on which TEK Military is supplying seating solutions. The ProTEK® seating range has proven reliability and modularity across many platforms, offering certified protection and safety standards, with superior seat ergonomics and through-life support.
TEK Military Commercial Director, David Parkman, commented, ‘TEK is delighted to be the seat supplier of choice for the Royal Netherlands DMO and is looking forward to the next tranche of vehicles on which ProTEK® will be fitted - these vehicles are already in an advanced development stage. We take great pride in creating innovative seating solutions for our customers, which has led to growth in our key markets across the globe.’
