Timoney supplies axles and steering system for follow on order
Navan, Ireland, 19 February 2017; YugoImport-SDPR is building a further batch of Lazar 3s, which will be fitted with the Timoney designed T900™ modular driveline systems. The new drivelines will be delivered during the middle of 2017 and the actual vehicles soon afterwards.
The Lazar is designed to operate where high mobility and tight turning circles are a key part of the vehicle’s requirement, such as in urban operations, medium level armed conflicts, anti-terrorist and peacekeeping operations.
“The supply chain for the T900™ demonstrates our technology transfer model. Having designed and proven the T900™, we will be working with our key production partner, Texelis of France, to supply the units to YugoImports,” said Shane O’Neill, Chief Executive Officer of Timoney.
“It is this method of operating which has put us in a very sound position as we celebrate this year 50 years of supporting AFV manufacturers around the world,” added Mr O’Neill.
The T900™ is designed for vehicles requiring a 9000kg weight load on each axle and includes the Timoney double wishbone suspension system to provide a high mobility capability to the vehicle. The modular T900 can be matched with Timoney’s transfer cases, or those from other suppliers, and steering systems or be part of a complete under the hull mobility solution designed by the company.
Timoney is exhibting at IDEX on stand 09-A32 and the Lazar is on display on stand 12-E20.
