Brontos for Dutch fire stations

The Netherlands’ Safety Region of Ijsselland has ordered three Bronto Skylift fire rescue platforms from local distributor Kenbri Fire Fighting.

Part of a fleet renewal programme, fire stations in Hardenberg, Kampen and Zwolle will each receive a 32 metre F32RPX mounted on a Scania P320 chassis. The F32RPX offers a maximum platform capacity of 500kg and an outreach of 24.3 metres. Minimum outrigger width is just 2.8 metres, making it ideal for setting up in narrow streets, while it has also been equipped with a hydraulically driven fire pump with 3,800 litres flow per minute. Delivery is expected early 2022.
