Rheinmetall Gets Dutch Ammunition Supply Deal

BONN, GERMANY - Dusselsorf-based Rheinmetall Group said Jan. 20 that it had concluded a 10-year framework agreement with the Royal Dutch Armed Forces to supply the Netherlands with a wide array of ammunition.
According to the Dutch Defense Department, the contract covers 44 types, including middle- and large-caliber as well as pyrotechnic ammunition. Initial deliveries with modular propelling charges for its PzH 2000 self-propelled howitzers will take place this year.
Rheinmetall anticipates an order volume of 200 million euros ($272 million) over 10 years.
Rheinmetall spokesman Oliver Hoffmann said the long-term framework will assure the Dutch military of short-notice access to a comprehensive range of ammunition and simplifying procurement processes.
