Experts in fire protection

Overview

Power stations are characterized by their complex overall systems made up of a range of different operating units. In addition to this, conditions such as extremely hot surfaces and lubricating oils pose huge fire risks. If the beginnings of a fire in a power station are not recognized automatically and extinguished immediately, the costs of damage can quickly run up into millions: Even fire damage in a secondary area can cause prolonged down times for the entire power generation process. Particularly in fossil fuel power stations, reliable operation is crucial since they represent a major pillar of the basic energy supply. In order to protect people, objects and the environment, a sophisticated and made-to-measure fire protection concept is necessary.

Sprinkler systems are an important component of building protection. These can be adapted to particular requirements by the choice of sprinkler. A fire detection system complements building protection in all areas. The fire detectors’ signals run together into the fire detection- and extinguishing control unit. This notifies people in danger as well as the fire service and in many cases assumes control and function monitoring of the fire protection systems.

In addition to the basic configuration, other fire protection systems come into operation for total flooding and local protection in gas and steam-generating stations:
