Oliver Bradley, our Sales Manager, will be at stand A2 together with our agent KaiMarine, where we will present the SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system - the optimal fire fighting solution for cruise ships. To book a meeting during the fair or for any information about our fire fighting system, please contact Oliver Bradley via

    Exhibition key information

    About SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system

    The SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system is a unique fire fighting system. When water is forced through  specially designed nozzles at high-pressure, a super-fine mist is formed that has a two-fold extinguishing effect. As well as cooling the fire like a traditional sprinkler, it simultaneously starves the fire of oxygen similar to gas fire suppression systems. All key components (high-pressure water mist nozzles, pumps and valves) are manufactured in-house for full quality control.

    Key benefits og installing SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system

    • Reliable fire fighting for passengers & crew
    • Project support & fire fighting expertise
    • Access to original spare parts
    • World class service & maintenance
    • 100% tested & approved system
    • Efficient long life-cycle system

    About China International Cruise Ship-Building Forum & Exhibition

    The 3rd China International Cruise Ship-building Forum & Exhibition will bring together governmental authorities, cruise & ship-building industry associations, cruise lines, shipbuilders, repairers & maintenance service, cruise ship design & ship interiors and decorating, engine equipment, electric automation, ship intelligent manufacturing equipment , classification societies, banks and financial institutions, cruise & ship industrial parks and other related cruise manufacturing industrial chain suppliers etc.  To read more about the event, please click here (the official event website) .

  • Best fire suppression system for Data Centre

    Published February 26, 2019

    Technological advances in fire suppression… View

    Technological advances in fire suppression for data centres over the last 20 years mean that gas & chemical-based solutions developments are becoming obsolete. Amongst their disadvantages are the facts that they usually involve releasing chemicals over a wide area and require ventilation systems to be shut down to remove oxygen. Electrical supply often has to be cut & clean-up operations take time. Staff safety, damage limitation & the amount of downtime are all major disadvantages with these traditional solutions. More & more data centres have therefore been turning to high-pressure water mist solutions. These systems comprise a tailor-made network of nozzles, which release micro-fine particles of water exactly at the point of the incident. While the localised fire is quickly extinguished, the remainder of the data centre’s operations and equipment remain unaffected & can be kept up & running.  The solution is completely harmless to staff and equipment & clean up is swift.  

    High pressure water mist fire suppression - how it works

    The key benefit of high-pressure water mist fire suppression solutions are the extremely low levels of water used. Using a high-pressure pump, clean water is forced through a specially designed, tested network of stainless steel pipework and nozzles at 60 or 100bar. The microfine water droplets emitted have sizes ranging from 50 to 200 µm. They quickly vaporise to cool and extinguish the fire, by displacing the oxygen around the fire zone. With this localised response, only the nozzle at the affected point is triggered and hardly any trace of water remains after activation. The area does not need to be sealed in the same way that a gas suppression system requires and ventilation does not need to be turned off. Energy supply and business operations can continue as usual.  

    Proven experience in data centres

    Danfoss is a global leader in the sale, development, production and service/commissioning of certified fixed fire fighting systems under the brand name SEM-SAFE®. Innovation is our approach. Our SEM-SAFE® system for data centres uses high-pressure water mist. We have been engineering and pioneering SEM-SAFE® fire fighting systems for decades and have successfully designed and installed systems in major data centres.  

    Data Centre World London

    Data centre experts meet this year at Data Centre World 2019 in London. Danfoss is participating here with Fireworks, our official business Partner for UK market. “Fireworks was the first company to install high-pressure water mist solutions for data centres in the UK” said Derek Killaspy, Managing Director of Fireworks. “Moreover, major data centres around the world have put their confidence in the Danfoss SEM-SAFE® systems that we work with. Each year on our exhibition stand with Danfoss at Data Centre World, we are continuing to see even more interest for our solutions.” For more information on the SEM-SAFE® product meet us on Stand D1166 at Data Centre World on 12th and 13th March at London's Excel.For VIP tickets please click here.

    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.

    Why is it important that our piping runs straight and parallel? Why do we take time to design our units with protected wirering? This question may be asked by some. It does not impact the operation of our system or necessarily increase the life expectancy. BUT we take pride in our Scandinavian design history and the high craftsmanship that is a trademark of Denmark and Danfoss Semco. All dials and controls should be in the same location for better user interface. Our products should be easy and safe to install. Danfoss Semco does not deliver kits and boxes. We supply complete skid mounted units that have been thoroughly tested in our facility to guarantee superior performance. Should anything break after many years of operation, our stringent design will make troubleshooting and repair much simpler. Quality is not only a task for the control department. It is in the Danfoss Semco DNA. From design and procurement through manufacturing by highly skilled craftsmen to final commissioning by our experienced Service Engineers on site.

  • Danfoss Semco & TFRI demonstrates the use of WM in heritage buildings

    Published November 25, 2016

    Danfoss Semco and their local… View

    Danfoss Semco and their local partner NDN have, in close collaboration with the Tianjin Fire Research Institute of the Ministry of Public Security, established a demonstration mock-up for heritage buildings. The site is located at the TFRI fire testing center in Tianjin, China. Parameters such as activation time, spray pattern and water consumption can easily be demonstrated to fire marshals, design institutes and other government bodies. Overall, the test illustrates that the SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system from Danfoss Semco is the optimal fire-fighting solution for heritage applications. Most buildings classified as heritage buildings were constructed before the time of fire codes and contain highly combustible materials. Wood structures are always a concern and have a high fire risk. High-pressure water mist is increasingly in demand for protecting these sensitive applications. The tests performed are the result of the need to maximize the fire safety of valuable structures.

    Safe and reliable

    The SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system activates immediately upon fire detection. It is harmless to humans and uses a 100% environmentally friendly extinguishing agent.

    Perfect for retrofit projects and wood structures

    The SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system uses high-quality stainless steel pipes that have a small diameter. They are light and can easily be bent to fit in tight spaces. The SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist nozzles have an aesthetic design that fits with historical and modern design interiors.

    Limited water consumption

    Due to the minimum water consumption, the SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system weighs very little. This makes it possible to install the system in areas where only lightweight systems can be used. Also, in cases of activation, the water damage is kept to a minimum. heritage-test-cn

    Extensive track record for heritage buildings in Europe

    In Europe, Danfoss Semco has an extensive track record of SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist installations in heritage buildings, such as: the Budapest Parliament in Hungary, Comparto San Paolo Modena historical library in Italy, Teatro Comunale Ponchielli Cremona in Italy, Havnbjerg Mølle mill museum in Denmark, Gamle Gård Kristiansand museum in Norway, Ten Trinity Square in London, United Kingdom. Tianjin Fire Research Institute (TFRI) The Tianjin Fire Research Institute of the Ministry of Public Security (TFRI), established in 1965, is a comprehensive and internationally famous fire science research institute, which has professional staff capable of independent innovation and a top-ranking, comprehensive test base. The research areas of TFRI include building fire protection and prevention technology, fire engineering technology, fire theory research, fire-cause analysis and determination, fire code and standardization, fire testing technologies and soft-science fire research, etc. To learn more about TFRI, click here.

    We need a strong performance, so we can invest in the future

    Danfoss Semco has, over the past four years, been on a journey to transform the company to be at the absolute forefront of the water mist business. Not only have we increased our gross profit by 74% during this period, but we have also significantly improved delivery performance while launching a range of new products. At the same time we have invested heavily in product development and approvals. In 2015 we had our highest investment rate ever. As the market continues to grow we will see more and more standards being implemented. We see this as a natural evolution that ensures that only high quality manufacturers, like Danfoss Semco, that focus on safety and performance, are allowed to supply fire fighting systems. Furthermore it provides documentation of the superior performance of the High Pressure Water mist technology. However fire testing is very costly, ranging from 0.5mio. EUR for small tests to in excess of 3mio.EUR for larger tests. So for Danfoss Semco to stay at the forefront we need superior performance in all aspects of our business.

    Spring of 2016 has proven to be very busy for Danfoss Semco in China. Danfoss Semco was an active participant and key note presenter at the “Annual Conference of Shanghai Architectural Society of Building Water Supply & Drainage Branch”. The Architectural Society of Shanghai China is an academic society founded in 1953, which brings together construction experts from all sorts of branches. The conferences organized by the association are very well known in East China. This year the event took place in the Shanghai Modern Design Institute, attracting elite architects, structural engineers and various building suppliers. Fire fighting in buildings was among the “hot” topics on this year’s program. The main objective of Danfoss Semco was to convince an audience of more than 200 people of the benefits of the SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system for fire fighting in any type of building. Mission accomplished!The event was a success. Mr Michal Zhang, general manager of ICAN Shanghai, one of Danfoss Semco’s official distributors in China, introduced the SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system as one of the most advanced fire fighting technologies. Besides being a reliable system, the SEM-SAFE® system respects the integrity of a building. Putting out the fire in seconds, without using any chemical additives and with minimal consumption of water and close to no water damage, it is one of the most environmentally-friendly and efficient fire fighting systems available, and is totally safe for human beings. The presentations and discussions that took place during the seminar have led to a high interest in high-pressure water mist. As a results several more seminars and trainings are already being discussed, where Danfoss Semco can take the opportunity to explain the details behind the high–pressure water mist technology and present the track record of projects where SEM-SAFE® has been installed worldwide.

    Jens Jepsen started developing the SEM-SAFE® water mist system in the early nineties and has been an important part of the Danfoss Semco research and development team ever since. For one, Jens has been part of forming the important ground rules within fire fighting with water mist, especially high-pressure, including IMO (from 1994) and CEN (from 2007). In addition, Jens is honary member of IWMA (International Water Mist Association) due to his engagement in water mist. Finally, Jens is probably one of the people in the world who has performed the most fire tests with water mist. For Jens, a personal success was to be able to work with a product where the quality was the best and also had a place in the market. Also, it has always been important to create safety and satisfaction for the customer by finding solutions every day that he could vouch for. Jens Jepsen appreciates the good times he has had with the remarkable people from the business. When Jens retires he will spend time with his family, working on his house and summer house, and go fishing and hunting. We want to take this opportunity to thank Jens Jepsen for the extreme amount of work and dedication he has given our company throughout the years.

    In December 2015, the entire Danfoss Semco China team gathered together for a meeting far away from the daily office environment, in Sanya, a beautiful, tropical city situated on Hainan Island in Southeast China. Group (3) The meeting had two main objectives: to make a summary of activities in 2015 and to draft the objectives and upcoming events for 2016. With these two main topics in mind, the meeting was of great importance. It was an opportunity to gather all the lessons learned in 2015 and implement this knowledge into planning 2016, ensuring that the year would start on a high note. For 2016, the team has approached 4 subjects:
    • Divide Danfoss Semco China into one division responsible for sales in the southern part of China and one division responsible for sales in the northern part of China. The purpose of this decision is to strengthen our networks of distributors and to reinforce our sales and marketing activities.
    • The roles within the Danfoss Semco China organisation have been redefined to take advantage of staff skills and abilities.
    • A completely new strategy called “Must Win Battles 2016” has been brainstormed to cover price management, sales strategy, market development and certificate target.
    • Training within pipeline management.
    The meeting was a success and all employees gained a good understanding of the goals and responsibilities within Danfoss Semco China. To ensure team cohesion, several sessions of the meeting in Sanya were allocated to team building, improving staff morale and enhancing skills. We have taken all the right steps towards a good start to 2016 and the team is confident that it will be a productive year. Teambuilding 1

    Team Rynkeby is a Nordic charity cycling team. Every summer the team cycles to Paris to raise money for children with cancer and their families.

    Team Rynkeby was founded in 2002, when 11 amateur cyclists associated with Rynkeby Foods A/S decided to cycle to Paris to see the final stage of the Tour de France. Rynkeby Foods was the main sponsor of their trip, which was also backed by other companies. Team Rynkeby donated their profits to the children's cancer unit at Odense University Hospital. A tradition was born! 1,600 cyclists in five countries Today’s Team Rynkeby comprises 1,600 cyclists and 400 volunteers, divided into 38 local teams in Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway and the Faroe Islands. Team members are selected from thousands of applicants. Every penny helps children with cancer For almost a whole year participants must not only prepare themselves for the 1,200 kilometer trip to Paris but they are also obliged to do what they can to raise money for children with cancer and their families. Every penny that Team Rynkeby raises in each country goes to the local childhood cancer association in that country. In 2015, Team Rynkeby raised just over € 6.45 million to fight childhood cancer in Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway and the Faroe Islands.

    Understanding the customer’s need is paramount

    Have you ever wondered if anyone would have suggested developing a mountain bike to the dying bicycle sector years ago or if a customer would have told Apple to develop an IPAD? Not likely. Danfoss Semco wants to drive change in a very conservative market. To develop and introduce new ways to solve old challenges. This means we must cooperate closely with our customers, but we must also be prepared to challenge their assumptions. To push the boundaries and find solutions that are more effective, simpler and more cost effective. An example is the use of our low-pressure CO2 systems in large container vessels. Nobody had done this before Maersk and Danfoss Semco introduced this on the Triple E vessels in 2013. Another example is the design of inverted or upright water mist nozzles for parking garages. Again Danfoss Semco is the first on the market. Throughout 2015 we have hosted a range of seminars across Europe for consultants, engineers and architects to introduce the water mist technology. To take the dialogue and develop a common understanding of the many benefits for building design and protection. We look forward to seeing many more during our 2016 seminars.

    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. DSC_1602 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.

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. DSC_1596 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.

    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 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. To learn more about Danfoss Semco SEM-SAFE® bilge nozzle click 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.

    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. De Beers Group

    Dear Customer, Being successful in… View

    Easy-business-7 Dear Customer, Being successful in today’s fast paced environment requires a transformation of the way we do business. At Danfoss Semco, and in the fire fighting business in general, we are faced with an interesting dilemma. Our industry has safety as the number one objective, both in terms of protecting human life and safeguarding material assets. This leads to a very conservative approach and thus slow adoption of new technology and processes. Our water mist technology offers a long list of benefits to both designers, architects and installers on top of the significantly shorter down time in case of fire due to low water damage. Likewise our customers see many operational advantages in changing from high-pressure CO2 systems to low-pressure CO2 systems. But offering the best products and solutions on the market is not sufficient to succeed. To gain customer loyalty we must also be the best in our day-to-day interaction with you our customers. To Danfoss Semco this means that we must be EASY TO DO BUSINESS WITH. Easy to do business with means that all business transactions are fast and simple and we meet or exceed your expectations in terms of both quality and delivery. In 2015 we are implementing many new processes and tools to support our ambition. The first step is the launch of our new portal where user friendliness has been the most important design parameter. I hope you will enjoy our new website and look forward to doing business with you.
