    • United Nations acquires the latest aircraft recovery technologies from Dutch company RESQTEC.
    • RESQTEC’s aircraft recovery equipment will help the United Nations MINUSMA mission in Mali to bring down the runway closure time after an incident by more than 50%.

The United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) and its strategic hubs in the north of Mali provide stabilisation, humanitarian and life support for the local population and national and international actors. In order to keep these strategic hubs operational at all times, MINUSMA identified the need for a self-sustained solution for runway excursions to prevent extended runway and taxiway closures. rapid recovery lifting devices to remove disabled aircraft as quickly as possible. After careful technical considerations and research, the Dutch company RESQTEC has been selected to provide its rapid recovery solution R2S.The performance and capabilities of the R2S lifting system meet the requirements of MINUSMA perfectly. The R2S lifting system was specifically designed to allow for controlled and continuous lifting in one shot, over a changing angle, without affecting the stability of the aircraft and incurring secondary damages. The equipment works on every aircraft, is quick and easy to use and extremely durable. This allows for a short set up time and ensures the fast removal of disabled aircraft.

RESQTEC is very happy to support the United Nation’s MINUSMA mission in Mali to provide and keep stability to the country. Our R2S aircraft recovery solution is a perfect fit with operational requirements of MINUSMA. The flexibility and deployability of the system will enable MINUSMA to handle the mix of military and civil aircraft such as the Hercules C130 and Boeing 767, in the challenging environment they operate in. Welcome to the RESQTEC family!” said Dennis Beck, Global Sales Director at RESQTEC.

Following the commissioning of the aircraft recovery equipment, RESQTEC will continue to support the team at MINUSMA with training, expertise and a 24/7 Emergency Response Service.
