Biggest order to date for Scania special vehicles

Biggest order to date for Scania special vehicles: Malaysia buys 60 fire engines Brazil buys 23 RIVs Scania is to supply 60 fire engines to Bomba, the Malaysian national fire and rescue service. This is the biggest order for emergency vehicles received by Scania to date. The company has also received the go-ahead to supply 23 new RIVs (Rapid Intervention Vehicles) to the Brazilian Air Force. The fire engines for Bomba in Malaysia will be equipped locally in Kuala Lumpur by superstructure specialists CME Technologies. The Brazilian RIVs will be built in Brazil and bodyworked in Europe by Rosenbauer International of Austria. The new Malaysian order brings the number of Scania fire engines purchased by Bomba to 100. The first 40 of these - all equipped with Scania's CrewCab - were delivered during the latter half of the 1990s. The next 60 will be of similar design, with accommodation for a firefighting crew of six, and will be built on Scania's two-axle chassis with a 9-litre engine. The Scania-Bomba deal includes a service and maintenance contract, as well as a driver training agreement. The RIVs for the Brazilian Air Force will be equipped with single wheels and all-wheel drive. The vehicles will be built on Scania's two-axle chassis with a 12-litre engine. Deliveries to both Malaysia and Brazil are scheduled for completion during the first half of 2002. For further information, please contact Håkan Lionell at +46-8-55383601.
