Oshkosh Fire & Emergency segment delivers 10 vehicles to British Petroleum
Published on 16 November 2012
The Oshkosh Fire & Emergency segment of Oshkosh Corporation delivered 10 vehicles to British Petroleum (BP), including four Pierce® industrial pumpers, one Pierce Sky-Boom™ aerial water tower, and four Oshkosh® Stinger Q4™ Rapid Intervention Vehicles.
The delivery also included a field service vehicle manufactured by Iowa Mold Tooling Co. (IMT), an Oshkosh Corporation Company. Two of the units are bound for oil terminal facilities in the Republic of Azerbaijan, while the remaining eight are headed for BP facilities in Iraq.
“When purchasing new emergency response vehicles for a terminal or oilfield operation, our priorities include functionality, mobility, and firepower – and not necessarily in that order,” said John Coates, Emergency Response Specialist for BP’s AGT (Azerbaijan-Georgia-Turkey) Region in Azerbaijan. “The team at Pierce and Oshkosh provide very capable and innovative vehicles that meet our specifications, as well as excellent service and parts support after the sale.”
“The delivery of this major order to British Petroleum showcases the capabilities and complete range of vehicles offered by Oshkosh and the Fire & Emergency segment, from large industrial pumpers to aerial towers, nimble rapid intervention vehicles and support trucks,” said Jim Johnson, Oshkosh Corporation executive vice president and president, Fire & Emergency. “All of our vehicles are built with an unwavering commitment to quality, performance, and reliability under the toughest conditions. It is very gratifying to have BP choose from our family of products to fulfill their vehicle requirements.”
The four Pierce industrial pumpers are each built on the Arrow XT™ chassis with a raised roof cab, seating for six firefighters, a tandem rear axle, and a 515 hp engine. The firefighting system includes a Husky® 300 foam system, a 1200-gallon foam cell, and a 2000 pound dry chemical system, and twin industrial monitors with 2000 gpm nozzles. The Pierce Sky-Boom™ aerial water tower is also built on the Arrow XT chassis. The vehicle features a 65-foot aerial device, a 750-gallon water tank, a 500-gallon foam cell, a 500 pound dry chemical system, a Husky 300 foam system, and twin industrial monitors with 2000 gpm nozzles.
The four Oshkosh Stinger Q4 Rapid Intervention Vehicles are compliant with NFPA 414 performance specifications and feature a four-door cab, aluminum body construction and 4x4 all-wheel drive. The Stinger Q4 is equipped with a dual agent hand line nozzle, and a front bumper turret.
The IMT Dominator® CS Mechanics Truck features body materials constructed from rugged galvanneal steel, with a patented body substructure design, an electrical system using automotive-style harnesses, and body storage capacity of 3.4 cubic meters.
