Autronica Fire Safety Solutions to Protect Two Major Offshore Wind Farms, Including World’s Largest
STAVANGER/TRONDHEIM, Norway -
As increasing investments are being made in renewable energy worldwide, Autronica is now supplying wind turbine fire safety equipment for two major offshore wind projects – Ocean Wind off the coast of New Jersey in the United States and Dogger Bank A off the coast of England. Together these projects will provide enough electricity to power more than 6.5 million homes across two countries. The wind turbines and their associated infrastructure will be protected by Autronica fire alarm systems, including Autronica’s latest detector, AutroGuard. Autronica is part of Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE: CARR), the leading global provider of healthy, safe, sustainable and intelligent building and cold chain solutions.
The combined projects are the largest in Autronica's 64-year history. Autronica fire safety solutions will protect a total of 282 wind turbines. Construction on the wind farms began late last year and will continue into 2023.
Securing these critically important clean energy projects demonstrates Autronica is best-in-class in delivering advanced fire safety technology for the renewable energy industry. Autronica’s technical experts designed a tailor-made solution suitable for large offshore wind projects and unmanned installations.
"We are very grateful for our customers’ trust in us by allowing us to contribute in the shift to renewable energy through the protection of their wind turbines," says Thor Egil Hafnor, Global Strategic Accounts Leader, Autronica. "These agreements are a big boost for us, and it is a pleasure to be able to protect these environmentally-responsible projects."
Autronica fire alarm systems are developed and manufactured in Norway’s technology capital, Trondheim, where Autronica has led the way in technological innovation for a safer world since 1957. Autronica’s latest detector, AutroGuard launched in 2021, differentiates between various types of smoke, which in turn contributes to fewer unwanted alarms caused by smoke occurring naturally in the environment.
