    Grand Rapids/Wyoming, MI (March 27, 2019) HME Ahrens-Fox will debut a new wet rescue

    apparatus powered by Hybrid Electric Technology (HETTM) at FDIC 2019. Assembled on the

    advanced AF1 custom chassis, the Ahrens-Fox HETTM is a Heavy Rescue Variable Response

    Vehicle with water and pump features, representing a forward leap in advanced energy


    The Ahrens-Fox HETTM features a fully integrated hybrid design, with operation beginning from

    the turn of the battery switch. The vehicle’s electrical system is backboned with an 18KW high

    voltage Lithium battery storage module. Low voltage (12V DC) operation is provided with a

    continuous capability of 440 amps of DC power. The motive engine is equipped with an 11KW

    high voltage alternator to provide replenishment power during driving, and the motive engine

    starting system is energized by a 12-volt capacitor. Cab climate control is achieved with a high

    voltage air conditioning compressor and/or an 11KW engine coolant heater. The interior of the

    cab is fitted with conventional heat and air conditioning units.

    “The apparatus will arrive on scene, the motive engine shuts down and the truck will continue

    to fully operate for 8-12 hours from the Lithium module”, said VP of Engineering Ken Lenz.
