ZIEGLER has been awarded the contract for the delivery of a total of 90 firefighting vehicles (HLF 20) to BwFuhrparkService GmbH. In addition, there is the option of supplying a further nine vehicles. All vehicles will be used by the German armed forces.
The vehicles will be built on a MAN TGM 18.320 4×4 chassis. Among other things, the vehicles with an engine power of 320hp are equipped with a 2,500-litre water tank, a 150-litre foam tank and the latest generation of ALPAS and Z-Control.
The German Armed Forces have been relying on ZIEGLER’s expertise in their fleet for many decades. The previously delivered vehicles were procured by the Federal Office of Bundeswehr for Equipment, Information Technology and Utilization. In total, several hundred ZIEGLER vehicles of various types have already been put into service, including Z6, Z8, forest firefighting and building firefighting vehicles as well as UTA multipurpose vehicles.
Markus W.
