Type approval for FlexiFOG water mist total flooding

Feb 1, 2007

for Machinery Space Category A and Pump Rooms

AFS has recently received type approval and MED certificate module B and D for FlexiFOG water mist total flooding in machinery space category A and pump rooms in accordance with the latest IMO standard, MSC/Circ.1165. The system can be supplied to any vessel with machinery spaces volume up to 3348m3 and 10,1meter height, single grid. Included in the approval is a separate water mist system for protection of the bilge area with height up to 1 meter and any volume. The system is a low-pressure system requiring only 10,45 bar. The nozzle grid is 3 x 3 meter.

The system features the following key benefits:

low-pressure system with an extremely low water consumption (1,71 l/min/m2)
increased extinguishing capability with AFFF additive, especially for small size pool fires
no backup tank and door manifolds
stainless steel pipes not required, due to the fact that a strainer is included in each nozzle and the nozzle drill is relatively large compared to high-pressure systems
cost-effective and easy installation with the use of standard PN16 equipment
reduced time, material and weight: FlexiFOG local protection system can be implemented without the use of additional nozzles
January 26, The success with AutroSafe IFG continues…
After the official launching of AutroSafe IFG (Integrated Fire & Gas Detection System) 18 months ago, the system has already been delivered to nearly 40 oil & gas projects. This proves that the unique technology and cost-saving features built in to the system have been well received by our global customers. The AFS Oil & Gas Division has received several major orders in the beginning of 2007, which proves that the 2006 success is continuing. The orders include, among others:

Floating Production Storage Offloading vessel (FPSO) Siri
Floating Production Storage Offloading vessel (FPSO) Aoka Mizu
Semi Submersible Rig, Seadrill 12
Offshore Production Platform Hoorn
Transocean Drill Ship P5905
5 Jacup rigs for Maersk
