 Project objective

Transport systems contribute to about 23% of the EU's and 16% of global total carbon dioxide emission but at the same time it is the main source of air pollution in cities. Widely accepted solution to that challenge is the usage of electric and hybrid electric city bus technology. The largest number of these buses is currently, and will in the foreseen future, use Lithium ion. (Li-ion) batteries pose a significant fire and explosion risks, as well as an exceptionally catastrophic threat of injury, death and loss of property. Thus, growth of the electric bus industry has accelerated the demand for e-bus fire suppression technologies. Current technologies do not fully meet customer needs as they do not offer automatic and integrated solution of early fire detection, system cooling and fire suppression. LiionFire, as an innovative product, seeks to address this gap. Dafo Brand AB is a leading fire protection system provider with over 30 years of experience in manufacturing, supplying and training services for a plethora of industries. The goal of this project is to validate, demonstrate and commercialize a highly innovative fire protection system for e-buses. It offers an early fire warning system, spot cooling to prevent thermal runaway and finally localize and suppress fires. Primary target users for LiionFire are city e-buses manufacturers, including our existing customers: Volvo, Iveco, Scania, Yutong and MAN. In the product commercialisation we will rely on the existing network of customers, OEMs and the existing worldwide distributors. Projected sales figures in five-year cumulative income are reaching 70MEUR. In the first business year we are planning to hire more than 20 employees while ending with more than 65 in the fifth year. The EU-added value will be expressed through safer electrification of transport, decarbonisation and maintaining global competitiveness of the European economy.
