Southampton Airports New Arrival
Southampton Airport has purchased two new fire service vehicles, at a cost of just over £1Million.
The Rosenbauer Panther 6x6 vehicles are specialist fire engines specifically designed for airport use, and were
built in Austria. They have a lifespan of around 20 years and weigh 35 tonnes.
They each carry a combination of water (capacity 12,791 litres), specialist foam (capacity 1,583 litres) and a whole variety of vital safety equipment. They are capable of travelling up to 50mph, which is crucial in enabling the highly-trained crew to be at any airport location within three minutes of an emergency call. Other new technological benefits include; infrared to help with locating objects in reduced visibility (i.e. fog), 80m hose reels, cab operated foam monitors which can be used whilst in motion, as well as better acceleration and top speeds.
This type of vehicle was also recently used in the Transformer 3 film, as the character Sentinel Prime
