AASANA is responsible for the provision of monitoring and protection services for aviation across the entire Bolivian airspace, and also for the administration of airports within the framework of approaches and quality standards that ensure their safety. Due to this, it makes a significant contribution to the country’s development and integration.
To ensure this, five Rosenbauer PANTHER have been purchased for Captain Aníbal Arab Airport, Teniente Jorge Henrich Arauz Airport, Riberalta Airport, Guayaramerín Airport and Yacuiba Airport.
Even the vehicles’ transport along the “Road of Death” – at an altitude of up to 4670 m above sea level – to their final locations gives an idea of the characteristic of great importance in conjunction with the procurement: extreme off-road capabilities!
The new PANTHER 6×6 has a payload of 12,000 liters of water, 1,300 liters of foam and 250 kg of powder. An N80 centrifugal pump with FIXMIX 2.0 supplies the RM80 turret with ChemCore nozzle and the RM15.
Due to the all-round satisfaction with the procurement, another project is already being worked on: 10 Rosenbauer Airwolf NFPAs. The Airwolf falls into the RIV (Rapid Intervention Vehicle) category, and is usually built on a powerful American chassis. This enables quick and safe deployment at smaller airports and heliports.
