Danfoss has an extensive list of references for many types of ships which are fire protected with our various fire fighting technologies.

Please find a few selected references below.

Esvagt Aurora, Standby safety vessel

The emergency Rescue and Recovery vessel “Esvagt Aurora” is protected with a SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system. The system protects the engine room with both a total flooding and a local application system. In addition to the class requirements, a diesel back up system for emergency operation in case of total black-out has been developed in close cooperation with Esvagt.

The SEM-SAFE® system was put to the test in October 2012 when fire broke out due to leaking marine diesel oil from a hot exhaust pipe of one of the diesel gensets. The crew released the SEM-SAFE® system and in less than 2 minutes, the fire was extinguished.

After the fire was extinguished, the vessel sailed to port, although it could easily have continued operations without jeopardising the safety of vessel and passenger crew.

Lady Kathryn V, Luxury superyacht

Launched in 2011 by Lürssen Yachts under the supervision of Moran Yacht & Ship, this 61m superyacht is protected against fire with a SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system.

Lady Kathryn V offers spectacular views from the main-deck master suite, offering an adjacent lounge and a separate office as well as four guest staterooms below decks plus side-launching tenders – all protected by high-pressure water mist.

Far Solitaire, Platform Supply Vessel

Far Solitaire is a monohull platform supply vessel (PSV) owned by Farstad Supply and managed by Farstad Shipping. STX OSV built the “Far Solitaire” at its shipyard in Langsten, Norway, and delivered the vessel to Farstad Supply in October 2012. Far Solitaire was presented with the "Ship of the Year 2012" award at the SMM maritime exhibition held in Hamburg just one month before delivery.

The DNV-classified ship is fully protected with a SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system. The fire fighting system protects the engine room with total flooding and local application in addition to protecting the deep fat fryer in the galley.

Triple-E, Container vessel

The Triple-E series comprises 20 ultra large container ships and these are among some one of the largest ship in the world. It sets new standards in the container industry. The name "Triple E" is derived from the class's three design principles: "Economy of scale, Energy efficient and Environmentally improved". The Triple E design helped Maersk win the "Sustainable Ship Operator of the Year" award in July 2011. The series is protected with a Danfoss Semco low-pressure CO2 system for engine room total flooding and cargo holds.

Atlantic Mercy, Hospital ship

Mercy Ships’ new hospital ship to double the capacity to deliver free healthcare.

The 37,000 GRT hospital ship will be constructed by China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation (CSIC) in its Tianjin Xingang Shipyard with project management by Stena RoRo of Gothenburg, Sweden and construction design by Deltamarin of Turku, Finland.

The hospital covers most of decks 3 and 4 – approximately 7000 square meters containing 6 operating rooms, an intensive care unit, clinical laboratory, diagnostic radiology, hospital supply and pharmacy services. With 109 acute care and 45 self-care beds, the hospital will have an onboard capacity of 154 patient beds.

The hospital ship is going to be protected by state of the art Danfoss Semco A/S high-pressure water mist system. The system protects hospital, accommodation and machinery space.

R396, Drilling rig

The project started in 2015 and will be finished in 2016.

The customer is Keppel FELS and the end Customer is Sapura Kencana Drilling. The location of the project is Singapore and the third party is ABS

For the drilling rig, the scope was design, engineering, and supply of equipment in addition inspection and commissioning of the water mist system, including horn & beacon, push button & section valves.

INS Vikrant, Aircraft Carrier

The largest warship and first aircraft carrier to be designed and build in India.

The aircraft carrier displaces about 40,000 metric tons, is 262 metres long and has a tailored air group of up to thirty aircraft. It is powered by four gas turbines on two shafts, generating over 80MW of power. INS Vikrant will have capacity for a crew of 1,600 people.

Upon completion, INS Vikrant will be the biggest warship ever built by Cochin Shipyard Limited. It has two take-off runways and a landing strip with three arrester wires, capable of operating STOBAR aircrafts including the indigenous LCA, as well as a range of helicopters.

The engine rooms of INS Vikrant are protected by the SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system for fire fighting combined with a bilge foam protection system.

Ville de Bordeaux, RoRo vessel

During the development stages of the ultra large A380, it became evident for Airbus that a need to transport the large parts of the plane from manufacturing site to manufacturing site would arise. This transport is done by sea – using a RoRo vessel. The RoRo vessel "Ville de Bordeaux" was built at Jinling Shipyard in China in 2004 and is protected with a Danfoss Semco low-pressure CO2 system for engine room total flooding and cargo holds.

Carmen, Car Carrier

When built, Carmen was the largest car carrier in the world, with a capacity of almost 8,000 cars. As is customary, the engine room and car decks are protected by a low-pressure CO2 system. Danfoss Semco has a long standing relationship with Wallenius Wilhelmsen, and therefore we were invited to provide the fire-fighting system for this series of five vessels.

Nobody wishes to ever use this system, but even after 35 years on board a vessel, you need to feel confident that the system will work in case of a fire. This is the reason why many ship owners all over the world look to Danfoss Semco for low-pressure CO2.
