Danfoss Semco wins prestigious design award
Published 30 September 2015
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.
