Hiab to Deliver Load Handling Solutions for the Dutch Fire Brigade and Highway Police

19.12.2008

Cargotec's business area Hiab providing load handling equipment and solutions has secured a significant order in the Netherlands.

The Dutch Ministry of Internal affairs has placed an order for the Dutch Fire Brigade and Highway Police with Hiab B.V. in the Netherlands in cooperation with Volvo and Scania. The order consist of 100 Multilift Demountables and 20 HIAB loader cranes all to be installed by Hiab on a Volvo or Scania truck chassis. The total value of the order is over 5 million Euros. The purchasing contract is valid for 4 years, but most of the deliveries will take place in 2009.

The equipment will be used for incident logistics where they will provide the fire fighters and policemen with the necessary tools on hand at the incident. Also will the equipment be used as mobile water pumps, hose reel units and with water tanks.

All the equipment will be maintained by the service organisation of Hiab B.V. in the Netherlands through a Repair and Maintenance contract.

The equipment to be used is a Multilift XR hooklift with the innovative automated PLC control. The automation is a key element as a lot of firemen are still volunteers, so there's no margin for error. The loader crane will be the HIAB XS 111, a very robust top of the range crane in the light range capacity.
