On 9 July 2020, Caspian Pipeline Consortium handed over fire trucks for the Astrakhan Region’s needs. As part of the fire truck fleet update, CPC provided seven fire tank trucks and foam extinguishing fire trucks based on the KAMAZ-chassis.
The trucks were handed over to Volgospas, the regional rescue & fire service. The vehicles will go on duty in five districts of the region crossed by the CPC oil pipeline. The Enotayevsky and Narimanovsky districts will receive two vehicles each and the Limansky, Kharabalinsky, and Krasnoyarsky Districts will received one each.
