The Early Failure Detection Centre has been awarded their largest single contract yet from the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) to continue to process fluid samples from the British Army fleet of land vehicles.

The Early Failure Detection Centre will continue to test oil, fuel and coolant samples on a regular basis from over 1,500 Land vehicles in the British Army fleet. This now means that the UK MoD and British Army can take advantage of the Machine Care Plus® service and secure communications network to receive critical fleet information much faster than previously.

The UK MoD described the tender submission as being “very impressive, both commercially and technically” and upon the award of the contract the Early Failure Detection Centre Manger has commented: “AES continues to be the recognised provider of fluid analysis services to the UK MoD Land forces and has a strong track record in this field that can be traced back to 1995. This latest contract award highlights our commitment to expanding the Defence business and gives the strongest indication yet to the market place that we are leading our field and fully committed to providing a fast, high quality and cost effective service across the whole of the market.”
