Oshkosh Fire & Emergency Group is unveiling the new Oshkosh® XP fire apparatus at Interschutz 2015 on June 8-13 at Messegelände, D-Hannover in Hannover, Germany. The new vehicle will be displayed at the Oshkosh Corporation booth, located at open-air site (FG) Stand M06/3. Upon the completion of its debut at Interschutz, the Oshkosh XP fire apparatus is launching a demonstration tour across the Middle East.
“The new Oshkosh XP fire apparatus is built in state-of-the-art facilities with the highest quality materials by North America’s leading manufacturer, and comes to market ready to meet the needs of firefighters around the globe,” said Jim Johnson, Oshkosh Corporation executive vice president and president, Fire & Emergency. “We are entering this market segment with a fully integrated and well-equipped product, along with a service and support network that is second to none. We invite Intershutz visitors to our booth for a close inspection and to meet the team behind the product.”
The new Oshkosh XP fire apparatus is engineered and constructed to exacting standards by Oshkosh subsidiary, Pierce Manufacturing, Inc. (North America’s leading designer of custom fire and emergency vehicles) and will be shown on a Scania P360 chassis. The vehicle is built on a corrosion resistant 4638 mm aluminum body with full-height compartments on both the driver and passenger sides.
The apparatus is fully outfitted with a powerful 4,000-LPM pump, an integrated foam system, a high-pressure hose reel, and a full complement of rescue tools and equipment. Other features include rugged spatter paint finished compartment interiors, roll-up doors with LED strip lighting, and enclosed ladder storage.
Alongside the new Oshkosh XP fire apparatus the Oshkosh booth will feature a stunning Oshkosh Striker 6 X 6 – with the Snozzle® high reach extendable turret, courtesy of Manchester International Airport in the United Kingdom. In addition, the booth will offer demonstrations of the new Oshkosh Striker® Simulator virtual reality training system, and 3-D drawings and key specifications for the much anticipated, new twin-engine Oshkosh Striker 8 X 8 aircraft rescue and fire fighting vehicle configuration.
