Nico Oberholzer from Marcé Fire Fighting Technology in South Africa has officially handed over this petroleum foam pumper to the Ray Hoareau – Operations Manager at the Seychelles Petroleum Company (SEYPEC).

The New Port installation features 28 storage tanks with a bulk liquid capacity of 188,000 cubic metres. The tender is based on an Iveco Eurocargo ML180E28 4×2 chassis featuring a 279 hp Euro 3 diesel engine and Allison automatic transmission. It makes use of modular construction with four lockers per side and a 7,000 litre foam tank.
Fire-engineering includes a German FireDos 6,000 lpm foam induction pump; a remote 6,000 lpm roof mounted monitor which uniquely recesses flush in to the body when not in use, 7 x 65 mm inlets and 4 x 65 mm discharge outlets.
As part of the scope of work, 12 000 litres of FireAde 2000 AFFF, UL tested, certified NFPA foam were also supplied to the customer.
