National Grid (NY) Mobile Command Center


National Grid (NY) chose LDV to build their new mobile command center on a Freightliner M2. This impressive mobile command center includes three industry-exclusive flat-floor slide-outs to maximize the interior space for the National Grid staff. A set of slide out and fold down steps has been integrated into the body via a storage compartment while an adjustable custom handrail can be set up for safety. A custom-fabricated door holder holds the curbside entry door open when needed. LDV's exclusive Intel-I-Touch™ vehicle automation system automates the startup and shutdown procedures for this vehicle as well as controlling the deployment of the slide-outs, the generator, HVAC, lighting, and more.

At the front of the vehicle is a work area with three workstations on the streetside wall. Along the curbside wall is another work station, countertop area with a printer, and a slide-out tray for an HP Multifunction Printer. On the front wall is a 43" 4K UHD TV while each workstation has its own 24" LED HDTV monitor. Solid surface countertops have been used throughout the vehicle for durability. In the center of the vehicle is a galley area with a 2.7cu. ft. refrigerator and custom-fabricated cabinets, an electronics rack, and an onboard lavatory with a sink, toilet, mirror, and pressurized water system. The rear of the vehicle features a fixed conference table with seating for six. On the rear wall is a 65" MondoPad Ultra screen for use during meetings or for keeping watch on the vehicle's surroundings via the mast camera. Two spider-base chairs can be secured to the table with a strap while the remaining four chairs are secured to the wall with brackets during transport. Above these four chairs are two 28" LED HDTV monitors and a framed magnetic white board. Along the curbside wall is fixed bench seating with removable cushions for storage and two smaller fixed tables. To create privacy when needed, a 30" pocket door has been installed on a heavy-duty aluminum track. The front side is FRP while the rear side of the door inside the conference room is covered in carpet. The exterior of this vehicle includes a heavy-duty non-locking telescoping pneumatic mast with a dome network camera and Lightfinder technology. Next to this is a ladder for rooftop access when needed. A weatherproof exterior workstation is found by the curbside door. This station includes a 50" HDR LED Smart HDTV, HDMI matrix switcher, RJ-45 Cat6 network jacks, and mini Intel-I-Touch pad. Multiple underbody storage compartments have been integrated into the body for additional storage space. A fully automatic vehicle leveling system ensures the mobile command center will sit level no matter what the terrain at a scene may be. Amber lights have been integrated throughout the body of the vehicle. To assist with parking duties, a color backup camera system has been installed as well.

"I was very satisfied with the whole experience and process. I believe that the sales personnel and technicians are very knowledgeable and have years of institutional knowledge that shows in the execution of the unit. My questions were all ways answered immediately and if there was any reach back for additional confirmation it was always followed up with a phone call and email. The open lines of communication provided both of us the full awareness of where we were in the build process and helped eliminate unnecessary delays or unanswered questions. Everyone I encountered during my visits were always smiling and happy while working, which was great to see and experience. This is reflected in the finished product that was noticed by my staff and all others that have visited to see the new addition to our fleet."

The best feature of the vehicle is the flush floor slide-out in the front of the vehicle. It provides a very functional work area and always receives favorable comments.
