Some of the mine clearance equipment to be supplied by the IFU via the contract with Pearson Engineering

UK defense firm Pearson Engineering has won a contract from the International Fund for Ukraine (IFU) to supply remote mine clearance vehicles and other mine-clearing equipment to Ukraine, the company said.

As part of the contract, Pearson Engineering will provide MW370 remotely controlled mine clearance vehicles to "defeat ordnance and to create safe routes across large stretches of civilian land" as well as "Barbadian Mine Rollers designed to protect against pressure-fused mines and IEDs."

It will also give Ukraine "multi-purpose vehicle interfaces that will allow armoured vehicles already in Ukraine to accept self-protection mine ploughs which have been gifted by the British Army and refurbished by Pearson Engineering," the company said.

The company didn't say how much the contract was worth or exactly how much equipment it will supply, but the contract forms part of a £100 million support package announced in October last year by the (IFU).

The fund was launched by the UK and Denmark in 2022 that has raised over £785 million from the UK, Norway, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Iceland and Lithuania.
