Landmine Clearance

All of the MineWolf clearance platforms can be used for landmine clearance.

The MineWolf (MW370) is the company’s flagship product and is primarily used for large scale landmine clearance. Used by national governments, peace-keeping forces and humanitarian non-governmental organizations, the MW370 can clear up to 30,000 sq. m. of land a day to a depth of 35 cm safely and effectively. It comes with interchangeable tiller and flail attachments and can clear mines with up to 10 kg of TNT. There are MineWolf machines operating all over the world from the snowy conditions above 4600 m in Chile to the extreme heat and dust conditions of South Sudan.

The Medium MineWolf (MW330) is an equally robust yet more maneuverable platform purpose built for military requirements. It can be operator driven or remote controlled and can fit into a 40ft ISO container or on a C-130.  It is also fitted with interchangeable tiller and flail attachments for conducting mine clearance. The MW330 is being used successfully for mine clearance in Somalia, Democratic Republic of Congo and Western Sahara.

The Mini MineWolf is a smaller remote-controlled platform which complete with workshop can fit into a 20ft ISO container.  Fitted with tiller or flail attachments it can clear anti-personnel and anti-tank mines. It is being used for mine clearance in countries as diverse as Croatia, Jordan, Rwanda and Tajikistan and has been bought for peace-keeping operations by the Irish Defence Force.

Counter-IED and Route Clearance

The MineWolf clearance platforms are designed to be multi-purpose in nature and have interchangeable attachments for dealing with landmines, IEDs or general engineering tasks.  For counter-IED, the clearance platforms are mounted with a remote-controlled robotic arm with various attachments enabling the safe clearance of improvised explosive devices. 

Since early 2011, the Mini MineWolf (MW240) is being used in Afghanistan by the British forces for the safe removal of IEDs from patrol routes enabling their daily operations to be completed more safely and effectively.

The Mini MineWolf is also being used by the German Armed forces as part of their route clearance package in Afghanistan. 

These NATO forces are using the platforms to their full potential with different attachments to perform a variety of purposes: for IED clearance, for area clearance of patrol routes or other contaminated land  and for general engineering tasks around camp.
