What could be more dangerous than a fire on board of a ship with its narrow stairs, sticking places, unclear and labyrinth-like premises, numerous hatches and ladders as well as ship movements due to the sea and the thermal-conduction properties of the ships steel makes firefighting operations even more challenging.
So what causes fire hazards at sea? Accidents, collisions, mechanical failure in engines and cargoes catching fire are principal causes of fires at sea. Furthermore, with many volatile environments at seas and ocean becoming sites for static structures mainly for the energy industries, the risk of fire hazards at sea is even higher. The severity of the fire depends highly on the combustibility of the materials in the ship structure, the types of cargoes that the ship carries and the flammability of minerals being extracted on petrochemical production platforms. At times, firefighters will be able to work onboard depending on the severity of the fire; however, in some situation, it can only be possible from a firefighting vessel such as if a blowout or an explosion aboard an oil rig or a gas production platform were to happen. Clearly, with such uncertainty of the time, place and the severity of the fire that might occur, the national coastguards or the relevant bodies have to be well prepared at all times.
Our portable firefighting unit might just help you in combating fires at sea. Since it is portable, you will be able to mount it on most vessels such as rescue vessels with minimal time required. Now, isn’t that convenient?
Moreover, with a pressure of up to 40m, you will be able to reach the fire without getting yourself or your team near the fire. Lastly, it is a two in one firefighting unit since this firefighting unit comes with an oil dispersant spray. It will be like killing two birds with one stone with our portable fire-fighting unit.
Have a great day my lovely readers.
