AMMROC, Al Ain, Abu Dhabi, UAE

Client: AMMROC

Date: January 2017

Location: UAE

Background: AMMROC is a high-security military facility based in Al Ain, Abu Dhabi, UAE, which specialises in maintenance, repair and operations. AMMROC exists to ensure aircraft readiness, fleet deployability and safety for many armed forces including the General Headquarters (GHQ) of the UAE Armed Forces.

Project details: Given the high-profile nature of the facility, Townscape was hired to install 300 PAS 68 bollards and 1,300 PAS 68 CT Blocks around the perimeter, providing an effective security solution to prevent vehicle-borne attacks. The products were manufactured under licence locally to Townscape’s specifications by main contractor Al Faraa General Contracting Company LLC.

The products were comprehensively audited to ensure they met Townscape’s strict quality standards. Once the products had passed the quality control, they were installed on site in line with Townscape’s installation specification.

Result: AMMROC is now equipped with a fully operational Hostile Vehicle Mitigation system to prevent vehicle incursion. Townscape’s regional network of contractors allowed the products to be manufactured in the UAE, ensuring cost-efficiency and avoiding expensive shipping costs.
