The Government has announced an extra $274 million in upgrades to the Williamtown RAAF Base north of Newcastle, where 58 of the 72 fighters already ordered will be based, with plans to order 28 more, giving Australia 100 of the planes
 
FPT’s  FireDos water driven foam concentrate proportioning device will be at the heart of the foam fire protection systems to be installed within the new hangars being built to house the new aircraft.  A 15,000 litre per minute FireDos unit will provided which is completely water driven and provides accurate proportioning over a wide range of flow conditions.
