Delivery new Hilton 530T Aerial platform for the fire brigade of Antwerp

The fire brigade of Antwerp has taken the new 530T aerial platform into operation. The platform has been entirely developed and produced in Maastricht. With this it is the highest modern firefighting platform ever manufactured in the Benelux. The Hilton 530T has been built on a Scania PV 400 LB 8x4*4 with a Plastisol body.

The Hilton 530T delivers impressive performance with regard to its working range and very fast set-up time – making it a leader in its class! The platform can be used as an extinguishing mast, rescue vehicle and also features a hydraulically driven pump of 4.000 liter with Fire Dos foam system.

The most important features are:
