Deployable Mortuary

The Ministry of Defence has the need to acquire a deployable mortuary capability. We need a solution that is already designed, proven and off-the-shelf as possible, but we understand that some design and customisation maybe required to fulfil our requirements. The deployable mortuary needs to be based upon an ISO 10-foot container (built to 'offshore' standards) to allow for transportability and compatibility with vehicles, twist-lock fastenings and Material Handling Equipment utilised in New Zealand. It is desirable that it can be loaded aboard a C-130H Hercules, which would require a height restriction of 2.4m (less than the ISO height). However, it is important to note that we will accept proposals for both the 2.4m height restrictions and for the standard ISO 10-foot container height of 2.59m.

It will be required primarily to be embarked upon a ship and therefore be suitable "marinised" to ensure it can withstand the environmental conditions on an open deck at sea.

It will need to operate on 230 Vac 50/60 Hz power supply and to be supplied along with a 440/230 Vac 60 Hz transformer to allow the mortuary to be connected to the ship's power (440 Vac 60 Hz).

The mortuary needs to comply with standards for mortuaries, electrical fit-out and offshore containers, be self-contained with refrigeration/freezing, lighting and controls, be hygienic, easy to clean and contain any biological products.

Delivery will be to Devonport Naval Base, Auckland, New Zealand.
