Leonding (euro adhoc) - 18 vehicles, worth 19.7 Mio Euro, for the New Doha
International Airport in Qatar

The airport company New Doha International Airport (NDIA), which is currently
building a new airport to accommodate the vigorous expansion of Qatar Airways,
has signed a 19.7 Mio Euro agreement with Rosenbauer for the supply of 18 fire
fighting vehicles, including a multi-year maintenance and service contract. As
well as 11 PANTHER (8x8 and 4x4) ARFF vehicles and an E8000 escape stair, the
order also includes six different rescue and fire fighting vehicles. The
vehicles are to be supplied by as early as October 2012.

The Panthers are based on four- and two-axled chassis and have engine outputs of
1260 HP and 705 HP respectively. Able to accelerate from 0 - 80 km/h in less
than 21 seconds and with a top speed of over 135 km/h, the PANTHER 8x8 meets the
specifications of top-category (Cat.10) airports.

In service worldwide, the ARFF vehicle PANTHER 8x8 was specifically developed
for deployment at international airports having two or more runways. These are
the airports most likely to handle `superjumbo´ airliners such as the A380.
Here, the high-performance vehicle PANTHER 8x8 permits the shortest possible
response times for getting large extinguishant payloads to the fireground and
discharging them as quickly and efficiently as possible.

The order includes an E8000  escape stair, which was also developed for use with
wide-bodied aircraft. The E8000 does an excellent job of evacuating passengers
efficiently and safely in an emergency. Rosenbauer  escape stairs are in service
at the international airports of Singapore, Berlin, Munich, Paris and Frankfurt,
to name but a few.

The New Doha International Airport is set to commence operations in 2012 and
will have Airbus A380-ready runways and taxiways right from the outset. With the
fleet of emergency vehicles it has ordered, the new airport will be ideally
equipped to meet the heightened requirements brought about primarily by the
entry into service of the `superjumbo´ Airbus A380.
