Power generation and distribution machinery, such as turbines, generators, transformers and cable tunnels, need to operate continuously. Yet, a fire in one critical asset can cause collateral damage to other that can result in power failures on the grid. Fires are usually caused by design defects, poor maintenance, voltage surges, overheating, arcs caused by a switch, leaking current, lightning, cable insulation deterioration and without of course discounting sabotage.
Many fires can be prevented and damage minimized by improving the reliability and effectiveness of the fire suppression equipment. FirePro systems can detect and extinguish a fire at its source which is critically important in reducing the risk of injury to personnel and damage to critical assets. They can be installed inside equipment and machinery where a fire will be detected and extinguished in the early stages – preventing its spread to other equipment.
