ROSENBAUER International AG, the world market leader for special-purpose vehicles, yesterday signed a contract with the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA - the company operating Saudi Arabia´s airports) to supply a total of 220 fire-fighting and rescue vehicles. The contract value is for around Mio. 100 EUR, making this the biggest single order in ROSENBAUER´s history.

With this fleet renewal programme, GACA will not only be modernizing the fire protection arrangements at all the Kingdom´s 26 local airports, but also ensuring fulfilment of the ever-more stringently monitored international airport certification regulations of the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation).

The shipments are to comprise many different fire-fighting and rescue vehicles and a comprehensive assortment of personal protective gear:

•       62 PANTHER air crash tenders
•       28 tank fire-fighters with 15,000 l extinguishant volume
•       60 "AT" (Aluminium Technology) rescue and fire-fighting vehicles
•       48 mini pumpers and command vehicles
•       6 hydraulic aerial appliances
•       16 rescue ambulances 

The vehicles will be manufactured largely at the Austrian production locations, while the hydraulic aerial appliances are to be produced at the Group´s 100% subsidiary Metz Aerials and the mini pumpers at ROSENBAUER America (Central Division). The vehicles are to be supplied and commissioned in several tranches by the end of 2012.

Won in the face of ferociously contested international bidding, this order once again confirms the ROSENBAUER Group´s pre-eminent position on the worldwide fire-equipment market. Together with this latest new order from Saudi Arabia, the large volume of orders on hand means that a good level of basic capacity utilization may already be taken as given for both 2009 and 2010.
