Marine fire protection

Extinguish fire safely without consequential damage with Inergen

If a fire occurs on a ship out to sea, help from land may be far away. Engine room fires in particular may have catastrophic consequences if they are not brought under control immediately. They can cause extensive material damage and ultimately threaten personal safety on board. For this reason, choosing a solution that minimizes the risk of fire damage is absolutely crucial.

With Inergen from Fire Eater you get a solution specifically designed to extinguish fire safely, rapidly and efficiently, and without consequential damage.

  • Inergen typically extinguishes a fire within 40 seconds and prevents re-ignition.

  • Safe for people to stay in the room when the system is activated.

  • No consequential damage to material – rapid resumption of operations.

  • The system has obtained all necessary approvals (IMO, ABS, DNV).

Inergen, the safe, secure choice

Fire Eater Inergen systems are used on a wide range of different ship types, including container ships, tankers, cruise ships, offshore supply ships, wind turbine installation ships, fishing boats, ferries and battery-powered ships.

Fire protection of ships is first and foremost about protecting engine rooms, pump rooms and control rooms.

Extinguish a fire in just 40 seconds

The Inergen system extinguishes fire quickly and efficiently, thereby minimising the risk of fire damage. At the same time, the extinguishing method is completely harmless to materials, so operations can be resumed immediately after a fire has been put out.

Of paramount importance, however, is personal safety on board. Here, Inergen is the safe choice. It typically extinguishes a fire in just 40 seconds, and it is safe for people to stay in a room where a system is activated. Inergen provides safety for personnel and is thus to be preferred to CO2 for ships’ statutory full-coverage protection of engine rooms, pump rooms and control rooms.

How Inergen works on ships

An Inergen plant from Fire Eater must be triggered manually on a ship.

The facility uses a so-called 3D extinguishing system. This means that the air that is released under pressure is distributed everywhere in the room via nozzles – even in hard-to-reach places. This makes the extinguishing method particularly effective and suitable for protecting e.g. control room, pump room and machine.

Our plant has obtained all necessary approvals: IMO, ABS, DNV.

    How it works

    How Inergen systems work in a data center

    The Inergen® fire suppression system is an automated solution designed to swiftly and effectively extinguish fires. It employs an aspiration system, which incorporates highly sensitive fire detection technology capable of identifying fires in their initial stages. Once a fire is detected, Inergen® is promptly released into the room. Reducing the oxygen level just enough to stop combustion, without posing any risk of harm to individuals present.
