How many litres does this hold?

Added by RUDI on 18 May 2008.

Similar four axle tankers in everyday use in France hold 13, 000 liters, but this 32 ton Actros might go up to 16, 000 or even more - depending on what else it is carrying.

High capacity tankers are very common in Portugal. A lot of older hydrant systems are built into buildings' walls, and supplied as a result by a rather small diameter water pipe. This often provides a rather limited flow of water. So the fire services make it a priority to bring a big tanker with them!
