With South Africa’s military deployed into various African countries on peace support operations, a new-generation rapidly transportable camping solution was needed. Pretoria-based Redeployable Camp Systems (RCSSA) (Hangar 7, Stand N03) has lately been awarded several contracts to fulfil this requirement.

“The Canvas Products system that RCSSA is currently delivering consists of general and vehicle tents of varying sizes, furniture and packaging equipment,” said Karen Coetzer, group marketing manager. “We designed steel crates to ship the entire system, including the tents, solid doors, support structure, interlocking rubber floor tiles and a raised floor.

In addition, we provide a hand-operated hydraulic stacker – a smaller version of large warehouse stackers – able to lift 2 tonnes.” The consignment is delivered in a standard (6m) ISO low-cube shipping container, making it suitable for transport in a C-130 aircraft.

Two further contracts cover a mess facility and a container solution for a host of applications, including air-conditioning systems, a canteen and barbershop, paymaster’s office, stores, security lock-ups and even a bar and gym.

The 32m by 10m mess hall, with vestibules on the long sides, is constructed of a modular steel or aluminium frame, covered by durable, flame-retardant PVC fabric.

The mess contract includes delivery of a high-throughput dishwasher and an auto-start heavy-duty silent generator. “This is essentially five-star living for the military on operations,” Coetzer added.

The company is globally renowned for its innovative redeployable and air-transportable camp systems, having provided clients with turnkey soft-walled camps and HERCon hard-walled containers that can be expanded to offer triple the usual floorspace.

Earlier this year Armscor awarded a R38 million contract valued to Pretoria-based Redeployable Camp Systems South Africa (RCSSA) for “simple and expandable” containers for the SA National Defence Force (SANDF).

The contract, part of the SANDF’s transportable camp systems requirement, runs over 33 months.

RCSSA group programme manager Richard Shaw explained the term “simple containers” is somewhat of a misnomer, as the containers are not that simple. They range from a bar, air-conditioning, canteen and a barbershop to a paymaster’s office, stores, security lockers and even a gym.

Pretoria-based Redeployable Camp Systems South Africa (RCSSA) was awarded a R64-million contract for a turnkey redeployable mess facility for the SA National Defence Force (SANDF). The contract runs over a 25-month period.

Deliverables includes a mess hall, 32m by 10m in size, with vestibules on the long sides. The mess is constructed of a modular steel or aluminium frame, covered by durable, flame-retardant PVC fabric, similar to the company’s other large modular systems. Innovative guttering and a raised floor allow for the structure to be erected in high rainfall areas with muddy or uneven ground.
