Fire protecting electrical substations and transformers
Electrical substations and power transformers
A fire in an electrical substation or transformer can have severe consequences for the power infrastructure.
Electrical substations and power transformers play a vital role in the electrical grid and the distribution of power. Both commercial and industrial activities are highly dependent on electrical power, and a fire in a substation can be catastrophic and have severe consequences for the power infrastructure. With damaged transformers, electrical power cannot be transmitted and distributed. A fire in a high voltage transformer can easily spread to adjacent objects and disable the entire substation resulting in significant damage and prolonged power interruptions. The VID FIREKILL low pressure watermist solution offers fast and reliable fire protection for electrical substations and power transformers. The system is designed to provide protection against the different fire risks in substations. The system only uses potable water as a suppression agent and is safe for people and the environment.
