Irizar has continued its delivery of highly customised coaches for niche markets with the supply of an i6S built on a Mercedes-Benz chassis to the Kuwait Fire Force.
The vehicle will carry high ranking officials and those from the Ministry of the Interior on special occasions. It is a 12.2m model built on a Mercedes-Benz chassis with what Irizar describes as a “unique decoration and seat layout” that is adapted to suit the customer’s requirement.
At the rear of the coach is a meeting area with seven captain’s chairs surrounding a central table. Elsewhere, the coach comes with additional small tables at forward-facing seats as part of its fitment with wood furniture (see gallery, below). It also has USB points at all positions, along with several 220v universal outlets, a galley with an additional refrigerator and a coffee maker, and a toilet.
Recognising the climate of Kuwait, the coach comes with extra-tinted windows and a maximum-capacity Hispacold air-conditioning unit that can tackle ambient temperatures of above 50oC. The body manufacturer has also included eco3 air purification to eliminate viruses and bacteria.
Irizar notes that all the fittings in the customised coach for Kuwait are available to other buyers, including those in the UK, with a spokesperson noting that the interior was completely manufactured at its plant in Spain.
The Irizar i6S for the Kuwait Fire Force follows the delivery of a highly-customed i8 integral ‘Blodbussen’ to a customer in Denmark. It is configured as a mobile blood donation centre and represents a continuation of Irizar’s activity in the healthcare market in Scandinavia; the OEM earlier delivered two ambulance vehicles to Sweden.
