first_imgDafo Vehicle Fire Protection has made significant progress in its attempts to break into the Australia mobile equipment market with its SV-K fire suppression system after being awarded the AS 5062 certification by regulators in the country.The company said it has fulfilled the requirements of the Australian Standard AS 5062:2016 – Fire protection for mobile and transportable equipment for the system and it has been granted with a Certificate of Approval by the Certification Body Global-Mark.At this stage, the certificate has been issued under the name of Dafo Vehicle Fire Protection’s Australian partner, BFI Fire Pty Ltd/Dafo Australia.Dafo has sold more than 100,000 fire suppression systems to manufacturers such as Volvo, Atlas Copco, Caterpillar, Scania, Sandvik, Komatsu, MAN, John Deere and Ponsse, but has so far struggled to break into the Australia mobile equipment sector.Holger Pfriem, Business Manager, Asia and Australasia, Dafo Vehicle Fire Protection AB, said: “This is a big step for us to make more impact on the Australian Heavy-Duty Mobile Equipment market mainly within the areas of mining, cargo, construction, forestry, waste and agricultural handling equipment in a broader and more comprehensive perspective.”David Thurn, Managing Director of Dafo Australia, meanwhile, said the company was confident the AS 5062 certification will facilitate the expansion of its business in Australia. “As a second step we will soon launch a fluorine-free agent,” he added.last_img read more
