High-volume pump delivery for the Bavarian Ministry of Interior
Published:  03 December, 2013

Hytrans Fire Systems handed over delivery of three HVPs (CombiContainer6500 and HydroSub150 combinations) to the Bavarian Ministry of Interior in June, and work is underway to fulfill delivery for three further units. 

The three units are stationed at the fire brigades of Nürnberg, Augsburg and Rosenheim, and the unit at Rosenheim has already proven its effectiveness. During the flood disaster in June the unit there was deployed for several days continuously (see HytransNews in August 2013). 

Although the HFS systems are primary purchased for civil protection purpose, the fire brigades are allowed to deploy the units in their everyday use. The next three units are scheduled to be stationed at the fire brigades of Schweinfurt, Passau and Regensburg. After the ministries of Rhineland-Palatinate (Rheinland-Pfalz) and Baden- Württemberg, the Bavarian Ministry of the Interior is the third federated state which has chosen HFS to be an integral part for its civil protection plan.
