AWI Awarded Multiple Contracts to Provide Fifteen Specialized Airport Fire Fighting (ARFF) Trucks and Structural Firefighting Trucks

AWI awarded multiple contracts to supply fifteen (15) highly specialized ARFF and Structural Firefighting Trucks to support our client’s mission critical support around Iraq.

These fire trucks were procured from the US and the UK and delivered to Iraq. Transporting the equipment was one of the biggest challenges that company’s face due to the uncertainty of the surrounding perimeter and safety issues. AWI considered different means to deliver the equipment safely and securely including the use of air freight. Thus, AWI has sought permission from Iraq Ministry of Defense and the Iraq Civil Aviation Authority to execute the mission of flying this equipment to Iraq.


ARFF and Structural Firefighting Trucks transported to our Client’s site safely using the rented ANTONOV AN-124-100 Ruslan – The world’s highest aircraft gross weight production cargo airplane and second heaviest operating cargo aircraft.

Currently, AWI are providing equipment rental services throughout in Iraq and expecting six more firefighting trucks (6 ARFF and 2 Tanker Trucks) will be awarded this year.
