Fire protection during shipbuilding and in shipyards

Smoke-filled escape routes can quickly become death traps

If the permanently installed fire alarm system is not working or not yet installed in the intended working areas, our MOBS fire alarm system monitors the shipbuilding work, to protect the workforce and the ship.

Fire and the production of smoke are serious risks when ships are being built in shipyards. Smoke-filled escape routes can quickly become death traps.

But what happens during construction, when the fire alarm system cannot be fully installed and operational? Fire protection measures are essential when welding, repairs and maintenance tasks are being carried out on a ship. A major fire and the smoke and fumes it produces puts the entire workforce, and the ship itself, in severe danger. Action must be taken quickly, as soon as smoke is detected, because frantic activity and the fact that escape routes on building sites cannot always be kept clear, could rapidly lead to chaos and panic in an emergency.

Our MOBS mobile fire alarm systems can be installed during a ship’s construction phase until a built-in system is permanently in place on the ship, and also if this system is disabled or being maintained. MOBS can be fitted with a multitude of different fire detectors. Not only are these detectors fully compliant with the standards, but they are also designed to be particularly robust and easy to install and operate. Our systems are fully configured and merely need to be hung up and switched on. MOBS can protect ships and yachts when work involving heat sources is being performed on them, whether during construction, maintenance or repairs. Water detectors and gas detectors also monitor the bilges.
