Fire fighting on board

Published:  10 August, 2016

Gielle reports it has been a leader in fire fighting for 50 years and has announced its new installation on the base of Novec1230 fluid fire fighting system for extinguishing fires in engine rooms, pump rooms, transformer rooms and electrical rooms, for ship and offshore applications. The company says the Gielle fire fighting system can replace, without significant modifications, old systems using Halon, Halotron IIB, carbon dioxide and water mist on board ships.

Gielle says the fire fighting system it has designed has passed the strictest approval tests and today has the most important certifications and approvals such as ABS, Bureau Veritas, RINA, GLLoyd-DNV, Loyd Register, etc.

The company says the innovative Gielle solution can detect the development of a fire in a few seconds, extinguish it automatically and rapidly and, as a result, limit damage to a minimum. It also has a series of benefits for the environment and in other areas and moreover the system presents additional advantages, in terms of global warming protection:

• No effect on the ozone

• Safe for personal area

• Very low impact on global warming

• No residues after a fire

• Non-conducting material.

Gielle says the flexibility of the fire fighting system, together with its considerable extinguishing power, makes it possible to reuse partly or completely piping already installed in the old systems after verification with special software.
