Marintec 2015 took place in Shanghai China on December 1st-4th
China´s dominant position during the last decade in the shipyard industry makes it the ideal place for companies to present and sell their products to the marine industry. Danfoss Semco is very proud to have been an exhibitor at this fair in a large stand shared with other Danfoss divisions, all in a common effort to show our great commitment to the marine world through our portfolio of professional and reliable products. The theme of this year was promoting a safe and green sail. The theme is reflected in the products displayed as well as the stand activities. As one of the leading fire protection specialists Danfoss Semco A/S – Fire Protection strives on continuous basis to be on the very forefront with new product innovation and system development. This year Danfoss Semco promoted among other the new high-pressure water mist bilge protection nozzle, which by the Confederation of Danish Industry recently was awarded the 2015 Product Price because of its clear benefits and degree of innovation. In addition, the innovative Danfoss Semco low-pressure CO2
system for large engine and cargo rooms was presented. We are very grateful for the large number of customers and guests that came to visit our stand. Thank you for your interest and should you require further information please do not hesitate in contacting us.

November has proven to be an interesting and very busy month for the Danfoss Semco marketing and land department. In close collaboration with Fireworks Ltd., our distributor in the United Kingdom, we have organised two events targeting key contacts in the British market.On the 25th of November 2015, the Houses of Parliament
was the incredible location chosen to host our first event. A select group of clients, together with key representatives from Danfoss Semco and Fireworks, enjoyed a tour of the Palace of Westminster, which is the meeting place of the Parliament of the United Kingdom, as well as a royal residence of the “Crown”. The tour was followed by a lovely dinner, networking and fantastic conversation. The day ended on a high note as we got the chance to visit the “Viewing Gallery” where we witnessed the Chancellor, George Osbourne deliver his autumn statement. Great atmosphere at the end of the visit to the UK Houses of Parliament
The second event took place the very next day on the 26th of November at Wembley Stadium
, a location that is so representative of the British love of sport and leisure. With more than 90,000 seats Wembley is the second largest stadium in Europe. It was a great honour to be able to hold our seminar in the same location that has hosted major sport events and where legendary voices, such as Michael Jackson and Tina Turner have been heard. The event focused on the “Benefits of High-Pressure Water Mist Systems in Commercial Applications” and there were more than 65 guests from different companies from all around the United Kingdom. The event received accreditation from the Institute of Fire Engineers. The seminar has proven to be a great learning opportunity concerning the advantages of using high-pressure water mist technology for fire fighting. The day ended with a grand tour of Wembley Stadium, which included access to the beautiful stadium pitch.

The Danfoss Semco's portfolio at the China Fire 2015 fair has attracted many visitors interested in hearing about our innovative fire fighting technology. Representatives from both Danfoss Semco in Denmark and Danfoss Semco in Tianjin joined forces in a shared effort to exhibit at the 16th
International Fire Protection Equipment Exhibition in China, one of the largest fire protection exhibitions in China. The event is an important channel for various levels of fire officials to meet, but also a significant trade platform in the Asia-Pacific region.
Visitors to the Danfoss Semco stand got the opportunity to see real life demonstrations of the SEM-SAFE®
high-pressure water mist system, allowing them to get a good understanding of the excellent properties of high-pressure water mist technology for fire fighting. Water is forced through nozzles at high-pressure to form a super fine mist. This has a two-fold extinguishing effect. As well as cooling the fire like a traditional sprinkler, it simultaneously starves the fire of oxygen like gas systems do. Visitors were able to touch the water mist and learn how high-pressure water mist is completely safe for human beings. Our range of nozzles for various applications was exhibited at the fair, giving visitors the opportunity to see the advantage of using SEM-SAFE®
for fire protection in all areas and rooms of a building. China Fire 2015 was an excellent opportunity for Danfoss Semco to highlight its most recently acquired certification, the CCCF certificate, which makes Danfoss Semco the first manufacturer of water mist to attain CCCF approval. This adds to Danfoss Semco’s certificate portfolio, reassuring customers that we are a realiable, approved and original manufacturer of high-pressure water mist systems. We would like to thank the many people who visited our stand and express our appreciation for their interest in Danfoss Semco products.

The first water mist producer in China to have CCCF approval
Outstanding quality and performance is crucial for Danfoss Semco… View
Outstanding quality and performance is crucial for Danfoss Semco and is reflected in all of our products. Only in this way is it possible to keep our customers satisfied and ensure the best possible fire fighting system. Our efforts to manufacture a reliable and safe product have paid off yet again. We are very proud to announce that our SEM-SAFE®
high-pressure water mist system for fire fighting has passed all the tests and quality management criteria demanded by the audit of China Mandatory Approval. This makes Danfoss Semco the first manufacturer to gain a CCCF Mandatory Certificate.
Having a professional R&D team, solid technical support as well as full control over the production of our key components, has put Danfoss Semco in a unique leading position in the Chinese market for years to come.
From September 2014, all water mist products have been included in the directory of mandatory certified products. This means that all the original voluntary certificates had to be changed to mandatory certificates before the end of August 2015. Danfoss Semco worked closely with TFRI (Tianjin Fire Research Institute of Ministry of Public Security) and was the first to hand in the mandatory certification application. During the product testing, SEM-SAFE®
high-pressure water mist system got a high degree of recognition from TFRI. In September 2015, Danfoss Semco received the CCCF mandatory certificate. “A high quality product is the foundation for market development. To abide by the rules of healthy market development is our principle, we will commit ourselves to holding the leading position in the Chinese market for high-pressure water mist systems for fire fighting”
explains Ms. Jiang Jijian, VP of Danfoss SEMCO China. To see the certificate, click here

Showing your workplace to your children during our “follow dad/mom to work” day.
Having highly motivated employees is an important part of running a successful company. The days where job security was the primary concern are long gone. It is paramount for employees to feel that working for us is more than a job. One aspect is for their families to better understand what we at Danfoss Semco do. Like many other workplaces, we have a high number of parents with small children. All Danish school children have fall holiday during week 42, so we combined the situation of children being off school with the possibility to introduce our company to the smaller family members. More than 14 employees brought a total of 23 children to spent a full day with one of their parents at Danfoss Semco. The children spent time at the workplace of their parent and were shown their everyday work. And everyone had an introduction to our production and products. Naturally we also had time to play with LEGO, watch Disney movies and enjoy free soft ice. Working at Danfoss Semco should be more than simply a job and your family should also understand how you play an important role for company.

Our focus on innovation is rewarded as Danfoss Semco wins “Produktprisen” at the annual DI Business Summit.
Innovation is at the core of Danfoss Semco DNA. We must constantly strive to develop new products that improve safety for our customers across the world.
Innovation is not just products. It comprises all aspects of our fire fighting solutions. We strive to design superior products, which enable simpler system design and operation. This lowers the life cycle cost for owners and also ensures that the crew feels confident when operating our system.
An example of our approach is the new SEM-SAFE®Bilge nozzle that has just been awarded “Produktprisen 2015”. The prize is given by the Confederation of Danish Industry (DI) to companies that develop superior customer focused products.
Using our Bilge nozzle enables us to design a single technology system i.e. there is no need for a foam system in the bilge area and we can avoid using lethal CO2
in the engine room. To the owner and crew this means increased time at sea, as the system is always ready to use (no need to return to harbor to refill foam or CO2
after a release), and faster fire fighting as the crew is more confident with a safer and simpler technology.

The Confederation of Danish Industry nominates five newly introduced products each year for their prestigious award “DI’s produktpris”. The products must demonstrate a high degree of innovation and also provide the user with significant benefits. Danfoss Semco was nominated this year for the new bilge nozzle launched in 2014. The SEM-SAFE®
nozzle is specifically designed for the bilge area of the engine room. While protecting bilge heights up to 1.5 m, it performs much better than other products and offers a solution completely based on high-pressure water mist. To the crew this means better safety as the system is always ready and they can perform live tests regularly to obtain confidence in system operation. Find more information about the DI's product prize here.

We do as Maersk. Invest heavily when times are tough to be ready when the market picks up again
Many companies are starting to see the end of the financial crisis. This may be true in the construction business where Danfoss Semco has seen very high growth over the last three years, but the marine business is still struggling. Our company has a track record of continuously investing in new product development and approvals. An example is our bilge nozzle launched in 2014. We are still the only company in the world that has an approved nozzle that can cover a bilge height up to 1.5m and hence provide a totally water based firefighting system for most vessels. 2015 will continue this trend with a record investment in our future. We are expanding our R&D department, we are conducting the highest number of fire tests ever and we expect to introduce even more products in 2015 and 2016. We trust this further strengthen Danfoss Semco as the preferred provider for engineering design companies, owners and shipyards.

Precious little diamond

Danfoss Semco high-pressure water mist systems are especially suitable for a wide range of highly specialized “work intensive” vessels. These vessels are characterized by functional design adapted to their purpose; research, pipe laying, safety standby, support, anchor handling or other functions. The common denominator for these vessels is high utilization rate of all available spaces. Danfoss Semco high-pressure water mist unit is designed with special attention to this segment. A high performance skid mounted pump unit with minimal footprint. The latest newcomer to the Danfoss Semco group of clients within the segment of specialized vessels is Debmarine Namibia, one of the world´s leading marine diamond mining companies. After a heavy and costly engine room fire in 2013, Debmarine Namibia decided that CO2
total engine room protection was to be supported by high-pressure water mist local application. The reason: a means to control or completely extinguish an engine room fire within minutes. From 2013 until now, Danfoss Semco local application systems are found onboard almost all De Beers mining vessels. Remaining vessels will be updated throughout 2015 and 2016. We are proud to have been chosen as the trusted supplier for the De Beers Group. Meeting the rigid safety requirements of the De Beers Group is recognition of Danfoss Semco high-pressure water mist systems.

Danfoss Semco participated in the 11th Shanghai International Fire & Security Technology Equipment Exhibition (Fire & Security Shanghai 2014)
held Nov. 9-11 at Shanghai Exhibition Center in the world famous downtown CBD area. The Exhibition is the largest specialised fire exhibition in China in 2014 and was supported and organised by Shanghai Fire Department. At the Danfoss Semco booth it was our pump unit, together with other key components, which attracted the visitors. In October 2014 we obtained CCCF certificates for all system types to be installed in the Chinese market. The exhibition was an excellent opportunity to make this public to the visitors. Our partners in the Shanghai area, ICAN and JWTA, contributed largely to a successful exhibition, both in all preparations and by handling visitors very professionally throughout all 3 days.
