Knowsley offers fire detection and fire fighting systems for very different production processes on process plants in the chemical and petrochemical industry. This begins with analysing the process and mapping the risks and risk areas.
Storage tanks come in different sizes and can be found in locations ranging from densely to sparsely populated areas, and they always contain harmful fluids, most often oil derivatives. The SK FireSafety Group has the right fire protection solution for all these different situations.
All the combined SK FireSafety Group expertise is needed in refineries. In addition to refinery processes, there are storage tanks and the continual supply and transportation of large volumes of environmentally harmful substances.
Liquefied Natural Gas, or LNG, is increasingly seen as the indispensable co-partner or even the successor to diesel oil and heavy fuel oil. For this liquid gas, fire fighting requires an entirely different approach to that chosen for oil and its derivatives. In an LNG fire, the gas needs to be contained and cooling water cannot be applied directly onto the LNG.
A Floating Production, Storage and Offshore unit is a processing plant, a storage tank and a ship all in one. This means that fire safety systems need to be able to cope with the forces released by the ship’s movements and also need to have a certain level of flexibility.
Nowhere do you need to be more self-reliant than on an offshore platform. And that includes self-reliance in the event of fire. There’s no fire service in the vicinity to come to the rescue and this has a number of significant consequences.
