The full-size vessel
The Düsseldorf fire-fighting boat was developed and built by Rheinwerft GmbH & Co., based in Mainz-Mombach, for use in the Ruhr region of Germany. Equipped to cope with catastrophic events - whether it is a ship on fire, escaped oil or a harbour system in danger of explosion - the vessel's fire monitors can hurl water or foam a distance of up to 95 m, and a height of 45 m, operating at a pressure of 10.5 bar. The two twelve-cylinder V-engines generate a total power of 930 kW (1260 BHP), giving the vessel a maximum speed of around 37 km/hr.
