11 August 2017
Emergency services equipment firm Rosenbauer is to supply four airport fire trucks to Gibraltar Airport (GIB) in early 2018 under a GBP 2.5 million contract. The powerful Panther trucks, incorporating Euro 6-compliant engines, include a ‘Stinger’ system with a high-reach extendable turret capable of throwing water more than 100 m at a rate of 6,000 l/min. Oliver North, Rosenbauer UK’s managing director, said: “We are ... excited at the prospect of delivering the pinnacle of aircraft rescue and firefighting machines at the absolute cutting edge of technology. We now look forward to executing an efficient build programme specific to Gibraltar’s high expectations.” The partnership is another highlight for Rosenbauer UK following a contract win worth about GBP 6 million earlier in 2017 to supply its new HEROS-titan fire helmets to more than a score of fire and rescue services throughout the UK.
