In the offshore oil and gas industry, the fire pumps are installed in FSOs, FPSOs, LNGs and FLNGs. Tank terminals, handling crude oil, petroleum, chemical products or any other flammable substance, are recommended to protect potentially exposed equipment by means of terminal fixed fire-fighting equipment.
The pump specifications range from 30–3000 m3/h at a pressure on up to 150 mWC and are designed according to the needs of the vessel in question and is customized to meet the needs of required specifications.
The fire pumps are fitted with two pumps: a main pump and a feeding pump. The main pump is driven by a diesel engine or an electrical motor and the feeding pump is hydraulic driven. Both solutions can be installed in containers if required.
The pumps supplied for offshore installation comply with NFPA20 and class regulations.
Installation and commissioning is carried out by Ellehammer service technicians who is available for support before, during and after start-up.
