Both these pumps meet the following requirements:

Fire-fighting pump sets include an electric control panel for each pump, connected to the main components (motor, pressure switches, sensors, batteries, etc.).
Diesel engine-driven pump sets have a vibration dampening system that reduces the amount of the vibrations produced by the Diesel engine reaching the system. The Diesel engine-driven pump includes two start-up batteries and a Diesel tank providing 6 hours of continuous operation.  The Diesel engine can operate continuously at full load in accordance with ISO 3046 standards, curve NA (section 10.9.1 of UNI EN 12845).
