Project Description

Extinguishing foam container for unloading cargo ships with hazardous liquids

At the end of 2019, we delivered an extinguishing foam container for our customer Minera Kraftstoffe in Mannheim (Germany).

The container has a complete system which, after the FAT test at our Oudkarspel site, was delivered and installed on site as a plug-and-play system.

Inside the container is a storage tank with 9,000 litres of foam, the electronic proportioning system and the switch box for the control.

This is connected to two electrically driven fire monitors with a lowering system, which makes it easy to carry out maintenance at ground level. Together, these two fire monitors can supply 14,000 litres of extinguishing foam a minute for optimum fire safety at the transhipment point between quay and ship.

After the successful SAT test on site at the client, the system could be put into service at the end of 2019.

InnoVfoam will also look after the maintenance for the coming 5 years.
