Nestlé Ukraine

Providing protection for Nestlé employees in Ukraine

Nestlé Ukraine was faced with a problem arising from the outbreak of war and Russian bombing raids throughout Ukraine, especially on their Kherson site. As they had no underground safe zone, they asked Lafayette Risk Intelligence teams to find an effective solution that could be deployed very quickly to protect their employees in the event of an alert. Lafayette Risk Intelligence in partnership with the French company Loseberger de Bauer, developed an armoured mobile bunker concept, the first to be imported in Ukraine. Based on maritime containers, our partner applied a certified BF6 ballistic metal coating. All our mobile bunkers were also equipped with autonomous batteries and air conditioning. 5 weeks after the request, 3 of our mobile bunkers were delivered and installed at the 2 sites.
