Since 2010 Ramco have been undertaking the Dismantling, Demiliterisation and Disposal (D3) of surplus assets and equipment on behalf of various NATO countries including the UK MoD. As part of a recent task a number of both armoured and standard vehicles were handed over to Ramco for them to work their D3 magic!

Following a proven process all vehicles were drained of POL and the interiors stripped for destruction. The VIN and chassis identification plates were then removed and destroyed along with all other markings. The cutting process commenced which included the destruction of all mechanical components such as engines, gearboxes, chassis and armour to prevent further reuse.

Ramco's D3 Project Manager commented "Having operated a D3 Contract in Afghanistan for several years and worked for many other NATO countries, it was great to have an opportunity to show UK MoD what we can do"

Further information about D3 can be obtained through or calling us on 01754 8808880

The latest stock to arrive at Ramco were 34 containers of RUBB shelters. To prepare for their arrival a 100 tonne telescopic handler was hired, enabling the containers to be swiftly unloaded. Despite a detailed packing list (from 2004!) a complete inventory check was undertaken to ensure stock accuracy and condition. The task consists of both used and unused shelters measuring either 20 x 24 metres or 23 x 36 metres, which can be used as workshops; hangars; canteens; accommodation etc. They are now being placed into the market via the Ramco website and several offers have already been received. If you require further information please contact our sales team on 01754 880880
