Have you ever wondered how fire safety is ensured in historical buildings?
During the International Water Mist Association conference in Rome (25-26 October 2017) , Antonio Terio, country manager at Danfoss Semco explained about the many benefits of using high-pressure water mist technology for the protection of shopping centres build in a historical city. 14000 m2
representing La Rinascente, the beautiful shopping centre in Rome, have been converted from traditional sprinkler technology to Danfoss SEM-SAFE®
high-pressure water mist technology for fire fighting. The shopping centre situated in the heart of Rome, La Rinascente, is truly special because ancient ruins combine in an elegant way with modern elements design to create a charming environment that could not be disturbed by any other installations. Not only that the SEM-SAFE®
high-pressure water mist system blended very well with the architectural features and requirements, but many installation and construction obstacles were successfully overcome by using the Danfoss fire fighting system, e.g with SEM-SAFE®
there was no need for a water reservoir normally required by a traditional system, thus saving valuable space. Click here

High-pressure water mist for metro stations

Better fire protection for metros and suburbain rail
Our society is characterized by a transportation system that expands daily, contributing to our modern living. In some of the biggest metro stations in the world, millions of people transit every hour. In such crowded places, ensuring people’s safety can be a challenge. The passengers only transit the area, most of them without knowledge on what are the fire escape procedures. Metros are also poorly ventilated, which can easily lead to radiant heat and smoke being amplified. It is a prerequisite for metros to be equipped with a reliable fire protection system that will make evacuation of people possible and facilitate the access for the fire fighting crew. Rigorous tests have proven that SEM-SAFE®
high-pressure water mist system is the optimum fire fighting system for protecting these critical transit areas. Marton Horvath,
Country Manager at Danfoss Fire Fighting, presented the test results and benefits of SEM-SAFE®
for metro stations and suburban rail at the RIFA Annual General Meeting.
Danfoss Fire Fighting attends RIFA Annual General Meeting
RIFA (Rail Industry Fire Association) Annual General Meeting was held on the 14th
of July 2017 in London. The main objective of RIFA is that of knowledge and best practice sharing in the field of fire safety for the railway industry. As a voice for norms concerning fire safety, the association's annual meeting serves as a platform for experts to meet and discuss fire safety. The event was very well attended and included a number of presentations and a fire test in the Burn Hall. Marton Horvath has chosen as a case study the famous Budapest Metro system, which is protected by a SEM-SAFE®
high-pressure water mist system. Fire test for cable tunnels and under carriage space protection demonstrated the excellent properties and benefits of SEM-SAFE®

Over the last 12 months, Danfoss Semco has been updating its data base of vessels which has Danfoss Semco fixed fire fighting systems installed onboard. The new data base ensures that we assist those vessel owners and vessel operators in a more pro-active and solution orientated way, says Andrew Bates. For our contract customers, the new data base helps in keeping their vessel or fleet of vessels in good operational conditions with respect to the fixed fire fighting system. We expect to have more vessels and fleets of vessels signing service contracts with us once they see the benefits of this updated data base, Henrik Bygbjerg explains.

With the current global turmoil and increasing nationalism we praise our diversity in nationality, age, religion and gender.
Danfoss Semco systems are used world-wide. From Canada to Australia, from the artic to South Africa. Our environment is truly global and so are our customers. Naturally our organisation should reflect this. Contrary to resent movements that alienate specific nationalities and foreigners in general, we embrace diversity. We believe that different cultures as well as diversity in background, nationality, gender and age provides a much more dynamic and inspiring workplace. Being inspired and working in a non-homogenous environment provides better and safer solutions for our customers. When we hire new employees, we select candidates based on competences, values and strong business ethics. This is the only way to foster superior performance. Our ambition is to be successful, not as a result of tariffs and trade barriers, but because we understand the customer and provide the right, easy and safe solution. We will make the world a safer place and hope our customers will see Danfoss Semco as the No.1 choice.
