Canada's Suncor Energy Takes Delivery of Specialized Apparatus

E-ONE, a member of REV Group, has delivered three trucks to Suncor Energy, Canada’s largest integrated energy company.

E-ONE, a member of REV Group, has delivered three trucks to Suncor Energy, Canada’s largest integrated energy company. The trucks will be used in Suncor’s oil sands mining site at Fort Hills, approximately 60 miles north of Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada. The new trucks include a Cyclone II Industrial Bronto, a Commercial Tanker, and a Cyclone II Industrial Pumper.

The Cyclone II Bronto <>  116 RLP+, with 116-foot reach, is one of the most versatile aerial platforms on the market. The Bronto’s articulating jib boom allows extended access to reach up and over objects, with a maximum payload capacity of 1,275 pounds. This Cyclone Bronto features a 2,000-gallon per minute fire pump, a 300-gallon foam tank, and a Williams Hot Shot II 150 foam system.

The Commercial Tanker <>  has a 2,850-gallon tank and serves a vital role since Suncor covers a large geographical area. The high-capacity tanker can re-supply units at a scene and features a 1,000-gallon per minute pump, a remote operated deck gun, and a Williams 1500 Around-The-Pump foam system.

In addition, the Cyclone II Industrial Pumper <>  comes loaded with a four wheel drive chassis, 1,200 Gallon “T” Combo Tank for water and foam, and cross lays installed into the bumper tray for less climbing at heights and fewer risks of injury. The Cyclone Pumper also includes a Williams 1500 Around-The-Pump foam system. Capable of pumping 3,000 gallons per minute, the apparatus is well suited to an industrial facility where quickly pumping high volumes can be critical.

“Suncor runs a full-time fire department,” says Terry Planck, Industrial Sales Specialist for E-ONE. Suncor Energy Emergency Services also assists in the community, in fact, when wildfire swept through Alberta in May of 2016, an E-ONE Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting (ARFF) unit used by Suncor for mine response assisted in the town of Fort McMurray. “When conventional firefighting methods are not working,” Terry Planck says, “The ARFF truck can be instrumental in flowing large volumes great distances to support the firefighting efforts.”

We are honored to provide new E-ONE trucks to Suncor’s operations in Canada.
