Divex and Analox Military Systems have joined forces to secure a deal to supply gas analysis equipment to the Swedish Armed Forces.
Divex has been awarded a contract from the Swedish Ministry of Defence Materiel Administration to supply the Swedish Armed Forces with the latest Saturation Diving Analyser (SDA) system produced by Analox Military Systems (AMS). The 11 units delivered will be fitted to the Swedish Armed Forces’ Recompression Chambers. The SDA system allows the flexibility to integrate several different types of analysers within a single rack. The Swedish requirement was to have oxygen (O2) and carbon dioxide (CO2) analysers embedded within the SDA rack.
Bill Elrick, Divex Defence In Service Support Manager, said “The Divex Defence department is dedicated to meeting the Defence industry requirements for diving equipment. This is a good example of Divex and AMS, the subcontractor on this occasion, striving to produce state-of-the-art equipment along with spares and bespoke documentation for the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration.”
Vicky Brown, Sales and Marketing Director for Analox Military Systems, added: “We were delighted to work with Divex to secure the contract. They, like us, are committed to meeting the needs of Defence industry clients around the world. The SDA series is a newly launched analysis system incorporating the latest technology. The modular build allows our customers a high level of flexibility when choosing monitoring equipment for dive chambers.”
