After fierce competition Albany secured an order from a major Singapore fire fighting & protection equipment specialist. The requirement was for pumps to handle 1400 litres/ minute of fire fighting foam concentrate.
Eight relief valve extended bearing pattern Albany GE-HD080 pumps with 4-inch flanged connections and bare drive shafts were supplied for building into skids out in Singapore, (photographs show the units under construction).
The roll-on/roll-off skids incorporated the Albany GE-HD080 pump coupled to a diesel engine, foam tank, pipe work and control gear. This enables the Singapore Civil Defence to place the unit at any strategic point to facilitate the fighting of fires.
