The requirements for the new emergency vehicle – an hydraulic platform B42 – for the company fire brigade of the industrial area Schwechat were enormous:

  • Rescue of people in the industrial area,
  • high equipment,
  • blind spots,
  • great extinguishing power, which, as is prescribed for operation in such industrial areas, can come from a cage boom elevation of 42 meters, likewise for normal extinguishing activities,
  • operation by limited staff numbers,
  • maximum automation and monitoring with a uniform operating concept
  • best possible maneuverability
  • and a maximum overall length of 11 meters.

It was important for the company fire brigade to meet all of these requirements using one supplier – in line with the motto “Everything from a single source” – in an economically sensible package. Furthermore, any necessary servicing should be performed on-site to the greatest possible extent.

The solution: A new TMB 0/4000/0-42 (hydraulic platform B42) from Rosenbauer!
The compact all-rounder combines a rescue unit and an industrial fire truck and is equipped with state-of-the-art camera technology, radio remote control for aerial rescue, firefighting pump, foam proportioning, and water monitor.
