Ivoclar Vivadent has acquired an electric fire engine for its company fire service. The Schaan dental specialist’s new fire engine has a range of 110 kilometers. As it releases no emissions, it can also be used in indoor spaces.

The new electric fire engine is fully equipped with all the resources needed by the company’s own chemical and fire protection service, as Ivoclar Vivadent explained in a press release. The dental specialist from Schaan reportedly has the first electric fire engine in Liechtenstein. It went into operation in October, tying in nicely with the company’s 50th anniversary. 
According to Ivoclar Vivadent, the battery of the new vehicle takes six hours to charge. Then, the fire engine can drive up to 110 kilometers, with a top speed of 65 kilometers per hour. The modern emergency vehicle is 2.3 meters high, 1.4 meters high and weighs 2.5 tons.
As the electric vehicle does not release any emissions, it can also be used in indoor spaces such as warehouses and tunnels. It is therefore “perfect for our company site”, said Ivoclar Vivadent’s fire chief Steve Harnisch in the press release.
