Chassis from France, body and firefighting equipment from Austria

Published:  01 October, 2014

At today’s Congrès National des Sapeurs-Pompiers de France in Avignon (France) Rosenbauer introduces a fire fighting vehicle on a Renault truck for the first time.

The Renault D 15 FPT complies with EN 1846 as well as all aspects of the French fire department standard NFS 61-515.

The vehicle is powered by an environmentally friendly Euro 6 engine with 280 hp including Optitronic gearboxes for precise gear changes and rapid stroke. The original Renault crew cab offers space for six people, and four seats are equipped with SCBA holders. Additional bottles and the SCBA unit for the driver and front passenger are stored in the body.

The interior of the body can be individually designed and can also be easily converted at a later stage. The Comfort modular stowage system provides shelves, transverse panels, extensions, rotating compartments, device and heavy-duty carriers as well as a number of compatible built-in components. 

A pump with 2,000 l/min performance works with a newly adapted pressure proportioner. This is designed for continuous foam proportioning between 0.1 and 6% and enables an extremely economical use of the additive in wetting agent operation. For output, a manual pull-out rapid attack unit is built onto the rear next to the pressure outlets. In addition, two drivable 200 m hose reels can be unwound.

The firefighting equipment is operated via the Rosenbauer Logic Control System LCS 2.0 (CAN-Bus technology) from the pump operator panel as well as from the driving compartment. The displays present information about tank contents, open equipment compartments, lighting systems and signal units. A rear-view camera and thermal imaging camera can also be fitted.

Other innovations presented in Avignon

Alongside the new tank fire fighting vehicle, Rosenbauer is presenting another new NFS 61-515-compliant vehicle: the small fire fighting vehicle (FIL) with Rosenbauer crew cab and fire fighting equipment.

At the trade show visitors can also see the (EPC) L32A-XS aerial ladder with new articulating boom; the L32 aerial ladder with narrow width (both built according to NFS 61-552 or EN 14043); as well as – at Scania's stand – a B32 hydraulic platform in accordance with NFS 61-550 or EN 1777. Together with the forest fire fighting vehicle (CCFM) presented for the first time the previous year, French fire departments now have three standardised types of municipal fire fighting vehicles and two types of hydraulic platforms at their disposal.

The Congrès National des Sapeurs-Pompiers de France takes place 1-4 October at Parc des Expositions d’Avignon in Avignon, France.
