After Hytrans Fire Systems handed over the first three CombiContainer6500; HydroSub150 combinations to the Bavarian Ministry of Interior last June, the production process for the next three units runs on full speed.
The first three units are stationed at the fire brigades of Nürnberg, Augsburg and Rosenheim of which the last mentioned already has proven its effectiveness during the flood disaster in June where the unit 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.
