Gibraltar Airport pounces for firm's powerful PANTHER fire trucks

A formidable partnership has taken off between Gibraltar Airport and emergency services equipment specialists Rosenbauer UK to supply a quartet of high performance air crash trucks worth £2.5 million

Gibraltar Airport pounces for firm's powerful PANTHER fire trucks

Holmfirth-based Rosenbauer UK, Britain’s premier fire and rescue supplier, is set to deliver its dynamic PANTHER vehicles to the airport in early 2018.

Three 6x6 and one 4x4 powerful PANTHER trucks – designed to offer the highest level of safety, operating comfort and extinguishing power – will be stationed at the airport for fire crews to use in emergency response situations.

All incorporating Euro 6 engines, the trio of 6x6 PANTHERs are set to include a ‘Stinger’ High Reach Extendable Turret (HRET) and rear steer axles to ensure maximal efficiency in deployment and ability.

“The team and I are extremely excited to be working with Gibraltar Airport on this project,” said Oliver North, Rosenbauer UK’s Managing Director.

“We are also equally excited at the prospect of delivering the pinnacle of Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting machines at the absolute cutting edge of technology. Any PANTHER from Rosenbauer is world-class, but with Gibraltar’s specification – including the coveted ‘Stinger’ HRET – it makes these appliances all the more special.

“We now look forward to executing an efficient build programme specific to Gibraltar’s high expectations. We are confident in completing a wholly successful project to the highest possible standard.”

The partnership is another incredible highlight for market leading Rosenbauer UK of late following a contract win in the region of £6 million to supply its ‘futuristic’ HEROS-titan fire helmets to Fire & Rescue Services throughout the UK.

"We now look forward to executing an efficient build programme specific to Gibraltars high expectations. We are confident in completing a wholly successful project to the highest possible standard."
