Isuzu Australia to showcase emergency vehicles at Melbourne event

Isuzu Australia Limited will use the Australasian Fire and Emergency Service Authorities Council’s (AFAC) upcoming annual event to exhibit a range of trucks and Isuzu Power Solutions products. Said event is scheduled to take place from 27 to 30 August at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Among the truck Isuzu plans to show off, according to Prime Mover, is the NPS 75-155 4×4, designed to be used as a transport vehicle for emergency services. The NPS 75-155 4×4 is offered in standard as well as automated manual transmission.

Isuzu states that the truck’s automated manual transmission was specially designed for off-road environments and terrains in Australia. In other words, it is meant to be the ideal transport vehicle for Australian emergency services, specifically fire fighting brigades.

From Prime Mover: “Integrating technology from both Isuzu Trucks and Isuzu Power Solutions, the NPS 75-155 is custom-fitted with the 3CA1 engine for the country fire authorities, providing a capable package that can match the extreme conditions in which they operate.”

Accompanying the trucks will be a range of products from Isuzu Power Solutions, some of which complement the NPS 75-155 and other vehicles in the transport, agriculture and emergency services markets.

Matt Sakhaie, head of Power Solutions for Isuzu Australia, said the company directly consulted fire authorities during production of pumps, which Isuzu will be featuring at the upcoming event.

“We’ve worked in conjunction with various country fire authorities to produce pumps that will be installed on the back of their fire-fighting trucks, and these you can find on the Isuzu stand,” Sakhaie explained.

The national sales manager of Isuzu Australia, Les Spaltman, told Prime Mover that his company views the event as a critical opportunity to exhibit a lesser known category of Isuzu vehicles:

“It’s always a great event to attend, and with AFAC19 being held in Melbourne, we have a greater ability to showcase Isuzu’s comprehensive offering to the fire and emergency service sectors.”
