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. 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.
