Data-centre fire protection
Norwegian supplier of sustainable data centres had exacting environmental requirements for a new fire extinguishing system. The natural choice was thus an Inergen®️ fire protection system as the solution is sustainable, non-toxic and non-corrosive.
Norwegian company Blix Solutions AS views sustainability and being environmentally friendly as of great importance. That’s why they do their utmost to ensure their services are CO2-neutral or even CO2-negative.
In 2019, they bought a property and built their own data centre facility with servers that were specially designed for their needs. The facility features many innovative solutions, such as solar-powered networking equipment and recycling waste heat from the data centre to provide heat for the ventilation system of their neighbours in the same building.
It is obviously important for Blix Solutions AS to protect their infrastructure, customer data and related assets. As a data centre, they handle an enormous amount of data flowing in and out of the facility. With such great responsibility, there is always a fear of fire.
Being able to detect and extinguish potential fires rapidly is of crucial importance to prevent both a direct catastrophe for the facility and the imminent danger of the fire spreading and causing further damage. This is also important for their customers.
