|Fishng Vessles are located in fleets around the country. They are required under AMSA maritime regulations to have a fire system installed. The challange for all vessel operators is to maintain the vessel to standards as well as managing the operations of the vessel.
The modularity and compactness of the FirePro fire extinguishing system were two of the decisive factors in its selection for the protection of the engine rooms of the vessel. Also pivotal in equal measure of importance for the selection process were firstly the ability of the FirePro system to tackle A, B, E classes of fire and secondly the minimal maintenance costs required over its long lifetime. Most importantly, FirePro can be delivered by airfreight – so downtime for maintenance for any system can be minimal.
Risks Involved & Consequences
|Results & Implementation
FirePro total flooding fire suppression systems installed in engine rooms protect critical propulsion equipment and offer peace of mind to operators in case of a fire emergency. With no piping required and no pressurized cylinders the systems were easily and quickly installed without posing a threat to personnel or the environment. In short FirePro then, has effectively reduced operational hazards and financial losses due to down times for all stakeholders.
