Volvo supplies NIFRS with V60s

Volvo has been appointed to supply 15 new V60 estate cars to Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service (NIFRS).

Following an extensive tender and evaluation, the new vehicles join an existing fleet of 21 Volvo V60s, each one bluelight converted and delivered to NIFRS livery specification.

Ian Reger, Volvo Car UK’s special vehicles manager, said, ‘We are delighted to have received a repeat order from the NIFRS. This new contract was awarded following an extensive tender exercise in competition with many other manufacturers.’

The V60 impressed the NIFRS on many criteria, including suitability for the role and competitive whole life costs. Volvo worked closely with NIFRS to agree on the placement and design of the equipment to suit its requirements working to extremely tight deadlines.
