The City of Vancouver is looking to purchase a complete closed circuit television (CCTV) camera van for inspecting sewer lines of various diameters. The final purchase will include the chassis, National Association of Sewer Service Companies (NASSCO) compliant camera equipment and an outfitted body. The preference is to have the camera van built on a stripped chassis in a step van format. The design of the final van should optimize the available space, and integrate the chassis cab, operating studio and equipment storage area. The operating studio will allow for viewing, recording and operating the CCTV equipment and the equipment storage area will allow for secure storage of all CCTV related equipment.
The City is committed to its environmental emissions and fossil fuel consumption and prefers for the body and equipment to be battery operated. The equipment must be operational for an eight-hour workday with potential expansion up to two eight-hour shifts. Additionally, the City is open to exploring electrification options for the chassis through third party manufacturers, provided the operational specifications of the equipment can be satisfied.
