IFEX systems in Jordan – presentation in the presence of the king

In early 2017, IFEX Technologies GmbH supplied two impulse fire extinguisher systems to the Jordanian Civil Defence Directorate.

The two systems mounted onto the track vehicles type BV206 Hägglunds consist of a 2×12 litre dual-intruder with a water capacity of 1000 litres and are additionally equipped with two hose reels with a 55m hose line and the IFEX 1-L impulse fire extinguisher gun designed for initial attacks. Thanks to the foam liquid mixer integrated into the systems, liquid fires can also be fought.

The vehicles are 6.90m long, 1.87m wide and weigh approx. 6.7 tons. They are amphibious and are suited for all types of terrain – up to a maximum speed of 52 km/h.

On the event of the transfer by the owner of the IFEX corporate group Mr Martijn Steur to the civil defence agency, in addition to the required instruction of the emergency personnel, a presentation of the systems with an appropriate fire-extinguishing demonstration was conducted in the presence of his majesty King Abdullah II bin al Hussein of Jordan, who showed great interest in this type of fire extinguishing equipment.
