Recently another vessel was saved by DSPA, where a fire occurred in the engine room of an East Coast Scalloper.
“The skipper saw smoke billowing out of the engine room, and he threw the suppression device down there. When the smoke had cleared, they went down, replaced the broken hydraulic hose that had caused the fire, cleaned up, and four hours later they were fishing again.” According to John Reardon, of Hercules SLR.
These motivating success stories prove once more the added value and effectiveness of the DSPA systems. Allowing more and more vessels to make the choice of DSPA aerosol as their fire protection choice.
DSPA aerosol fire suppression is exceptionally effective on fuel fires, extinguishing fires that are caused by leaking hydraulics rapidly. The unpressurized and compact extinguishing generators can be ceiling-mounted, saving up a lot of space.
Proven Effective at Sea:
The applicability of aerosol systems at sea is not only proven by success stories or references, but also backed up by research and certificates by institutes as RINA, ECB and Maritime New Zealand.
