10 years with the local and US Forces without experiencing any problems or quality



These units can be as service commercially but also for security forces, humanitarian

forces and can be used in any disaster area.


These units can be transportable by Air with C-130 and can operate on their own since

they are equipped with a diesel pump, hose reels and metering device.
