So, why did they set about designing the EV0 and what was their remit?
The company which has its HQ in Cumnock says that it has long been committed to positively contributing to a Low Carbon Economy….marketing manager Claire Carson explains: “We recognise that our Fire & Rescue Service customers, whether in the UK or worldwide, require to reduce their appliance fleet emissions and carbon footprint. With this in mind, our engineers were tasked with designing a low-emission fire appliance – but with some strict criteria imposed.
“Firstly, we did not want to produce a Hybrid vehicle, nor a concept truck, or one with limited range and operational performance. Our aim was to produce a next-generation solution that builds on the current features of today’s diesel-fuelled fire appliances, but also including many new and innovative features, designed to improve firefighter (and public) safety. In other words, a low emission fire and rescue vehicle that exceeds the current appliance specification.”
The Emergency One Group has successfully packaged this innovation on a wide variation of chassis choices, and bespoke designs to match range of operational requirements. Built to EN1846 requirements or adapted to suit customers’ regional requirements the vehicle can be designed and manufacture to bespoke solutions.
