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.
