Wormald, which started in Australia 125 years ago, will design, supply, commission and conduct risk assessment of fire suppression systems for most of Komatsu’s mining and construction mobile equipment, and will also supply fire extinguishers for all the company’s mobile equipment.

"This partnership will make it easier for mine and construction operators to integrate high quality and reliable vehicle fire suppression systems onto mobile equipment at the point of purchase," Wormald Queensland and Northern Territory Business mining development manager Scott Meekin says.

"Vehicle fire suppression systems can significantly reduce the damage of a fire, yet unfortunately some mine and construction operators are hesitant to install these systems despite the risk of fire in mobile equipment."

The safety of Komatsu mobile equipment will be greatly enhanced under the new deal, says Komatsu Australia procurement general manager Gerry Tessier.

"We welcome the partnership with Wormald and look forward to working with a leading brand that values quality, reliability and efficiency as much as Komatsu does," he says.

The new vehicles are available for order now and can be viewed in Komatsu showrooms.
