Qatar Civil Defence has been a Rosenbauer customer for decades and has already purchased several heavy-duty, high-end rescue vehicles with cranes.
For the upcoming 2022 Football World Cup it was decided to purchase another larger rescue vehicle on a MAN TGS 6×6 chassis with a 48 mt crane with a range of up to 21 m.
The operational focus of this vehicle is on vehicle recovery along the coast, where vehicles repeatedly fall over the coastal fortifications, and in some instances have to be recovered from the water. In addition, a 60 m cable winch is also attached to the crane, which can be used together with the 10 tonne vehicle winch, as well as with a 60 m cable length, for rescue. To ensure a complete electrical supply in exposed areas during large-scale operations the vehicle also has a 60 kVA built-in generator. The Rosenbauer FLEXILIGHT 8 x 42W LED light mast provides appropriate illumination of the operational scene. The additional Rosenbauer PROCAB crew cab with integrated Rosenbauer COMFORT breathing apparatus holders in the seats facilitates an extended crew of up to 6 firefighters.
In addition to these main components, the vehicle has an extremely comprehensive equipment package that covers all operational areas, starting with rescue shears, various rescue saws, jump cushions and lifting bag systems, right up to rescuing people from heights.
The vehicle was handed over to the customer in summer 2020 and has been successfully in use since then.
