Fire protection solution for cargo ships


Fast and reliable - minimizes water damage

Cargo ships are critical for the transporting of goods

A cargo ship is a ship that transports heavy goods and materials from one continent or country to another. A typical cargo ship can be a car carrier transporting large numbers of cars from one continent to another. Container ships are ships transporting a large number of containers. Oil and gas tankers are ships transporting crude oil or liquid gas. Chemical tankers are ships transporting different types of chemicals in bulk, and bulk carriers transport different goods in bulk, such as coal. All of these types of ships have different fire potential. A fire onboard a cargo ship can bring the crew into very dangerous situations, cause critical supply problems, and if the tanker catches fire, create serious environmental impact. A fire protection solution that will rapidly control and suppress fire is therefore crucial onboard cargo ships.

A fire on a cargo ship can have serious consequences for the crew and the environment.
