Hesco Defensive Barriers Tested in Ukraine 

Recently nominated for an Exporter of the Year Award; Hesco Bastion Ltd further proves themselves as a global provider for immediate effective force protection at the National Guard Training facility in Novi Petrivtsi,Kiev on Monday.

The Interior Ministry of the Ukrainian Government; members of the Ukrainian Law Enforcement and the British Embassy were all present for a product demonstration and trial that took place on February 2nd 2015.

T.M.M., a Hesco reseller based in Ukraine, held the testing of HESCO® MIL products. The units were deployed and filled by a local construction team, creating a stand-alone wall over two metres tall and 15 metres wide. Guests included the Interior Minister Avakov, the Commander of National Guard, Lieutenant General Kryvenko, Ukrainian Law Enforcement authorities and the British Embassy, observed the firing of various types of ordinance at the defensive barrier, including bullets, grenades, 10kg of explosives, and RPGs, testing the product to its full capabilities.

Aaron Ackley, Hesco Bastion, Inc., present at the trial said:

"The barrier units were partially damaged at the front, as to be expected from such an intense stream of direct fire, but most importantly the rear of the barrier remained intact, and the structure still stood strong, still protecting. The testing was an absolute success."
