Request for Information on Capabilities, Supply and Support of Ultra Large Fire Vehicles

8 May 2019

On 1 May 2019, Airservices released a Request for Information (RFI) seeking information on the provision of ultra large fire vehicles (ULFVs) from the vehicle manufacturing industry, both in Australia and internationally.

The RFI is now available on the Austender website (ATM ID = RFI PRN_13998). It is open until 5pm (AEST) on Wednesday 5 June 2019. The deadline for questions is Wednesday 22 May 2019.

The RFI has been designed to allow us to identify currently available product options and capabilities in the context of Australia’s unique operating requirements and an indication of costs to supply, maintain and support the services. This information then help us to understand and consider our ULFV fleet configuration and capability options into the future.

Of particular interest for us is the ULFV capabilities that have been demonstrated as effective elsewhere or are in the process of being implemented in the near future.

We would like to hear from suppliers who could supply part or whole services as a result of collaboration between vendors so if you know of anyone, or know someone who might, please pass on this information.
