This Urban Pumper replaced an Acco 2350 based Medium Pumper at Kalgoorlie-Boulder station.

DFES states: “UP Series appliance design is a continuous improvement upgrade to the Heavy Pump appliance series first commissioned in 2008.
The UP series development process incorporates the commissioning by Fleet and Equipment Services of FESA generated drawings and specifications, proto type manufacture under direction, and full scale manufacturing. This process was adapted in recognition of the variations experienced across the preceding MP and HP series where the contracted manufacturer directed the appliance build process. The process provides for standardisation across the series irrespective of manufacturers (provided capability has been demonstrated) and has resulted in reduced delivery timelines.”
