Holmatro Personal power unit

The Personal Power Unit was developed specifically for the fire and rescue services to power hydraulic rescue equipment. Spark was responsible for the design, concept and engineering of the plastic parts.

The stylish yet functional form was developed through a series of foam models. All models were full scale to facilitate more accurate test results. The client was then able to choose from an array of design options.

An innovative build that cleverly combines both plastic and metal materials drastically reduced the weight of the unit. We found a way to individually prototype each part that forms the housing. This resulted in a fully functional first prototype that could be extensively tested.
