When Knowsley SK had produced their mobile firefighting foam pump trailers in the past, they had to have the trailer chassis purpose-built, and despite similarities between models, they had to start from scratch every time. Because of this, each trailer produced had to be IVA tested, the process of which incurs high costs both in time and money.
Knowsley SK contacted the team at Towmate Trailers to collaborate in developing a solution that would enable them to have a standardised trailer that could be easily adapted to suit specific applications. In addition, the development would help Knowsley to avoid the costs and time delays caused by having to get the trailers IVA tested individually.
Towmate Trailers engineers were drafted in, and using the models provided by Knowsley SK for the pumping equipment, we used our standard Osprey Rolling Chassis trailer as the base to create a solution for Knowsley’s requirement.
Our modular chassis design enables bespoke trailers to be created, utilising existing components, and some additional bracketry to create this unique trailer for a specific application.
In addition, because our Osprey Rolling Chassis trailers are already fully type-approved, Knowsley SK didn’t have to get involved in any approval work before supplying their trailer.
Towmate Trailers also supplied the bespoke cover for the chemical IBC tank mounted on the top of the trailer.
