No need for unnecessary costs
One of DLG’s goals with the new logistics center is to be able to offer a better service to customers by e.g. to reduce delivery time. Therefore, it is absolutely central to be able to maintain a stable operation.
“It would be catastrophic for the business if the warehouse was out of operation for a shorter or longer period of time,” explains Keld Caspersen.
As Inergen consists of 100 % natural gases, it leaves no consequential damage to equipment and requires no purification unlike traditional water-based solutions and foams. That was one of the clear benefits DLG saw in Fire Eater’s solution. Should a system be triggered – either as a result of a false alarm or in case of a fire, the consequences and costs will be limited.
“Inergen is an easy extinguishing method in relation to water or foam. It will be very costly to clean up after, for example, foam extinguishing and presumably a large part of the products will have to be discarded afterwards.
With Inergen we just have to vent and then we can continue the operation already after approx. 15 minutes There is no reason to have unnecessary costs “, says Keld Caspersen.
For the same reason, DLG was very enthusiastic about the plant’s very limited maintenance costs.
“Once you have installed the system, it takes 10 years before the cylinders have to be pressure tested and reinstalled. It is very important that there are low costs associated with operating it.”, Concludes Keld Caspersen.
