NSPA Delivers New firefighting Vehicle to Spanish Navy Aircraft Carrier

The NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) has recently delivered a new firefighting vehicle to the Spanish Navy (Armada Española). Powered by a liquid cooled diesel engine, the fire truck is specifically designed for operations on board aircraft carriers, amphibious craft and in restricted areas, and is equipped with two independent fire-fighting systems for combatting various types of fires.

This system is capable of spraying a jet up to 25m and in mist mode is capable of spraying a cloud up to 5m in size. The second system is a dry powder extinguishing system especially prepared for Class B fires (liquid fuels) and Class C fires (flammable gases) and has a range of 10m. The first system is comprised of a high-performance compressed air foaming system that combines a mixture of water and an aqueous foaming agent with injected air to increase the fire extinguishing performance.

Commissioning and acceptance tests took place at the Rota naval base on board the Landing Helicopter Dock vessel SPS Juan Carlos I.
