The MV-10 mine clearance system, assembled at a Ukrainian enterprise, has successfully passed certification.

The Ministry of Economy of Ukraine announced this.

The Ukrainian company A3Tech-Ukraine, which carries out large-scale assembly and partial production of Croatian DOK-ING vehicles, has received a certificate of conformity for the MV-10 mine clearance system.

The company has an order to produce eight such vehicles. The first one, manufactured with funds raised within the UNITED24 initiative, has already been delivered to Ukrainian sappers.

“It is important for us that it is a Ukrainian company that manufactures components and assembles the vehicles that clear our land of mines,” Yuliia Svyrydenko, First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economy of Ukraine, noted.

According to her, the demand for such equipment for humanitarian demining from sappers is very high, and the government expects that due to the support of partners and the capabilities of Ukrainian manufacturers, it will be possible to increase the number of mine clearance systems.

“We hope that along with the localization of foreign technologies, there will be an increase in the number of Ukrainian demining developments,” Svyrydenko shared.

A3tech already manufactures up to 40% of the components for the MV-10 working tool and plans to increase this figure to 100% by the end of the year. Two other Ukrainian companies have been subcontracted to work on these vehicles. They produce some of the components for the machines and the platforms used to transport them.

In total, A3Tech-Ukraine has the capacity to produce up to 60 MV-10 mine clearance systems per year.

Currently, 17 DOK-ING MV-10 mine clearance systems are in operation in Ukraine. The systems are used by the State Emergency Service, the State Special Transport Service, and the Swiss Foundation for Mine Action, mainly in Mykolaiv, Kherson, and Kharkiv regions. As of the end of May, these vehicles have cleared 850 hectares of Ukrainian land and eliminated more than 4,500 mines, cluster munitions, and other types of explosive ordnance.

In May, the MV-4 system assembled at the same Ukrainian enterprise also received a certificate of conformity.
