Fast and reliable - Minimizes water damage

Ferries are full of potential fire hazards

The primary function of a ferry is to transport passengers, cars, and trucks. Ferries can be large vessels typically RO-RO (Roll On Roll Of) transporting passengers and cars overnight from one country to another. The most common type of ferries are shuttle ferries crossing fjords and lakes with a small number of cars, trucks, and passengers. These kind of vessels are usually operated during day time only. A fire in the machinery space or the car deck can have serious consequences for the vessel's safety and can cause severe damages. Most fires on ferries originate in the machinery space due to broken fuel pipes. In addition, a fire on the car deck can lead to an explosive fire due to the large fire potential as the car deck is usually loaded with different types of cars and trucks.

A fire on a ferry can have serious consequences for the crew and the passengers.
