Florida Power & Light chose a Freightliner M2 Extended Cab for their mobile command center. Their mobile command center features two flat-floor slide-out rooms to increase the interior area of the vehicle. These slide-outs are controlled by LDV’s Intel-I-Touch™ vehicle automation system which can also automate other vehicle systems such as HVAC, generators, leveling systems, and more.
A crawl-thru from the cab enters into a combination conference/communication area including six workstations and conference table with seating for eight. The center area holds two network racks. Custom-fabricated aluminum cabinets have been installed for additional interior storage. At the rear of the truck is a galley complete with a fridge, microwave, and coffeemaker. A lavatory with fold-down aluminum box pan shelves is located at the rear of the vehicle. A first aid station is also located in the rear area.
On the exterior, a weatherproof workstation has been integrated into the body including a 55” monitor, phone, fold-down work table, and LED strip lighting. A surround surveillance system provides staff with the ability to keep watch over the area they are stationed at. To access the roof, a ladder has been installed in the lavatory area. HVAC is powered by three low-profile air conditioner units and two wall-mounted electric heaters. A 25-kW generator provides electric power to the vehicle from its custom-fabricated generator compartment.
