All tests are carried out in a controlled environment with professional fire-fighting crews

 

Firesafe
NCMP have developed and successfully tested (please refer to our video for details), a Fire Safe Aluminium Helideck system that is capable of removing significant quantities of unburned fuel from the surface of a helideck in the event of a fuel spill from a ruptured tank. This enables the immediate suppression of a fire by not only removing the fuel, but also cutting off the oxygen supply and providing a cooling mechanism.

 

 

Deck Integrated Fire Fighting System
In conjuction with the above passive system, NCMP has used and tested (see video for details) a Deck Integrated Fire Fighting System (DIFFS) to successfully comply with UK CAA CAP 437 (7th Edition) Helideck Rescue and Fire Fighting Facility requirements. This system provides an effective alternative to a Fixed Monitor System and where a DIFFS system is used in tandem with a passive fire fighting system demonstrated to be capable of removing significant quantities of unburnt fuel from the surface of a helideck in the event of a fuel spill from a ruptured tank, it is permitted to select a SEAWATER ONLY DIFFS to deal with any residual fuel spill.
