    On 1st June 2020, our dear colleague Peter M. Knudsencelebrated 25 years of working in our company. In August, we organised a small reception, which gave us the opportunity to express how much we value Peter as a colleague and recognize the contributions he continues to make. Hard working, loyal, knowledgeable, fair, with a strong work ethic. These are just a few words that describe Peter. For a quarter of a century, Peter has been active in the promotion and sale of the technology he truly believes can make a difference in fire safety; high-pressure water mist. His vast experience makes Peter a mentor, who we often go to for training and guidance in Danfoss Fire Safety. We thank Peter for a great collaboration, and we look forward to many more years of working with water mist projects. “Really overwhelmed by the many compliments I received in connection with my 25-year anniversary – thanks to Danfoss, truly a great company to be working for.”Peter M.

It provides the premises for large innovative scientific and technological research.

    Danfoss Fire Safety and LAKC partnership

    The project is a result of the successful collaboration between our sales team in China and our business partner, LAKC (Lian An Ke Chuang (Beijing) fire protection technology co. LTD.).

    Fire safety in data centres

    Storing data is an absolute must these days and it is crucial that data centres are fully and properly equipped to handle a fire situation. With SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist from Danfoss, the fight against fire is more efficient, with the ultimate goal of saving lives, limiting equipment damage and keeping the data centre running.

    SEM-SAFE® system

    Danfoss Fire Safety supplied 4 pcs. SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist pump unit, 1,877 pcs. SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist nozzles and 64 pcs. SEM-SAFE® section valve assemblies. The SEM-SAFE® system will cover key areas such as the data hall, power distribution room, UPS room, battery room and generator room. Installation of the SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system is expected to be completed in summer 2020. The key stakeholders were impressed by: 
    • The features of the Danfoss high-pressure pump, which are virtually maintenance free as they are lubricated by water. See here an introduction video to the Danfoss Axial Pump
    • The many years of experience that Danfoss Fire Safety has in protecting data centres worldwide
    • The fact that our system is FM approved.

  • New SEM-SAFE® fire hose reel cabinet with spray gun

    Published 26 May 2020

    We are very happy to introduce the new SEM-SAFE® fire hose reel cabinet... View

    We are very happy to introduce the new SEM-SAFE® fire hose reel cabinet with spray gun product version 2.0. 

    Through engineering and research, we developed a fire fighting product that is an immediate and efficient tool for the fire brigade and non-professionals to use in the fight against fire. The fire hose reel cabinet with spray gun is part of the 1st emergency response strategy in case of a fire. The fire department saves important time.

    The new SEM-SAFE® fire hose reel cabinet with spray gun replaces the traditional design consisting of sprinkler system and separate hose reel system, whilst adding a series of advantages within installation, integration and operation. The most important goal is to offer the best possible efficiency when fighting fire and protect people, equipment and assets.

    The SEM-SAFE® fire hose reel cabinet with spray gun is suitable for installation in any building types, modern or historic, and of any size and height

    It is an immediate fire safety solution for commercial applications such as hotels, stores, warehouses, underground car parks, health care facilities, educational facilities, museums, offices and high-rise buildings. 

    The Danfoss SEM-SAFE®fire hose reel cabinet with spray gun is suitable for fire fuelled by wood furniture, plastics, but also flammable liquids and combustible liquids.

    Key advantages of the SEM-SAFE® fire hose reel cabinet with spray gun

    Fully integrated with SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system

    The SEM-SAFE® fire hose reel cabinet with spray gun is designed for direct connection to a high-pressure water mist system for fire fighting, meaning there is no need for separate installations and separate systems.

                              Simple to operate                                                      

    Precision & simplicity in handling have been crucial parameters in developing the product. 
    The 50 m hose is thin and extra flexible for added ease of handling and a larger coverage area.

     Fast & easy installation

    Everything is optimised on the SEM-SAFE fire hose reel cabinet with spray gun for quick and easy installation by just one person.

    There is  extra flexibility in installation. By turning the cabinet around and by reassembling the internal main components, the fire cabinet door can be changed to left or right hinged.The fire cabinet has pre-cut holes for piping, which allow for extra flexibility in installation. 

    Mounted outside the wall - surface wall mount
    The cabinet is simply installed outside the wall.

    Mounted inside the wall - flush mount
    The cabinet is completely placed in the wall.

    Testes & approved

    It has been tested in accordance with standard
    EN 3-7-2004+A1:2007[1].
    The fire hose complies with ISO-11237.
    It is fire tested against Class A fires and Class B fires

    One fire safety technology to cover all areas in a building

    The SEM-SAFE® fire hose reel cabinets can be connected directly to the high-pressure water mist piping network with very small branch pipes (OD 12 mm). Thus, a dedicated separate piping network is not needed. This means less time is spent on piping work, planning and installation as well as fewer components need to be installed on-site.  

    The SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system and the SEM-SAFE® fire hose reel cabinet with spray gun  can share the same pump unit, leaving more space for other money generating activities.

    One technology serves all fire safety needs in the building,  making installation, maintenance and service easier to perform.

  • “Click” solution for SEM-SAFE® nozzle installation

    Published 2 April 2020

    The SEM-SAFE® nozzle installation kit has been developed to fit the SEM-SAFE®... View

    The SEM-SAFE® nozzle installation kit has been developed to fit the SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist nozzle and is compatible with a variety of ceiling types. It is suitable for drop-hose installation and fixed piping. It allows for easy installation and servicing of nozzles.

    The SEM-SAFE® nozzle installation kit can be used for the following purposes:  

    • simply covering the nozzle or  
    • installing the nozzle in the ceiling, while also ensuring nozzle coverage

    Simplicity and ease of use were key parameters in developing this solution. With the help of magnets fitted to the clamp disc, the cover plate simply ‘clicks’ and covers the installation area. 

    By using the nozzle installation kit, the SEM-SAFE® nozzle can be installed last and the pressure testing can be done before the nozzle is finally installed in the ceiling. With this installation solution, any maintenance and inspection as well as alteration to the ceiling can be done without interfering with the high-pressure water mist nozzle and system, thereby saving time on installation and maintenance significantly. 

    The "click" solution kit includes 3 main components:


    Clamp disc
    - to be installed around the nozzle neck. The clamp disc is designed as a multi bracket, to utilize for both installing nozzles with screws and for installing nozzle with "spider" weldment functionality.

     

    Cover plate - clicks on clamp disc to cover the nozzle installation area.


    "Spider" weldment
    - needed when screws can not be used for installation. Supports installation from the top side of the ceiling.

    Documentation

    Please click here in order to access the data sheet for the SEM-SAFE® nozzle installation kit.

    Videos

    There are three methods in total of installing the nozzle using the SEM-SAFE® nozzle installation kit:

    1. Nozzle installation with cover plate and clamp disc - nozzle covering only
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INDQlzAmBGw&feature=youtu.be

    2. Nozzle installation with cover plate and clamp disc - installation directly in the ceiling or wall with screws

    How to order

    To order the SEM-SAFE® nozzle installation kit, write to our Customer Centrer via firesafety.customer@danfoss.com

The seminar is a platform for sharing news with our Partners, getting direct feedback from them, but it is also a great way to socialize and have some fun. Day 1 took place at the Danfoss Grodzisk Mazowiecki Poland office.Adam Jedrzejczak, President of Danfoss EER Region, gave us an insight into the “muscle” power behind Danfoss. Our R&D department released a brand-new 3D Product Configurator Tool. The tool is embedded in our www.semsafe.danfoss.com homepage. It offers a simple and transparent product portfolio. The 3D models are available 24/7 with accurate dimensions and comprehensive, up-to-date technical data. With this tool, we are truly putting digitalisation at the fingertips of our Partners by giving them the possibility to configure and preview the product with a single click. Partners can use it together with their own customers, for example architects, for a full hands-on digital experience. Day 2 took place in Warsaw, where we saw the installation of the SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system in the Varso high-rise building, an iconic landmark in Warsaw, currently under construction. Once completed, Varso tower will be the tallest building in Poland and the European Union. We are extremely proud that our SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system ensures optimum fire safety of people and assets in this impressive building.

  • Best fire suppression system for Data Centre

    Published 26 February 2019

    Technological advances in fire suppression for data centres over the last... 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.

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.

    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®.

Although the marine and off shore industry is currently facing tough market conditions, this did not impact the visitor numbers significantly, which were on par with Marintec 2015. 900 exhibitors from 48 countries were represented at Nor-Shipping, and 15,000 visitors from 75 nations made the trip to Norway.

    Thank you for visiting Danfoss at Nor-Shipping 2017

    The great engagement of the many visitors was also felt at the busy Danfoss booth. The Danfoss team would like to thank everyone who visited our booth on the Nor-Shipping exhibition this year. We were happy to see your interest and participation at our two marine seminars, and we enjoyed engaging with all of our customers and business partners in discussions around the challenges and opportunities that characterize the marine market today and in the future.

    Committed to marine applications

    With great team effort and cooperation between the participating segments to align key messages and activities to interest and attract visitors throughout the fair, the results are also showing in the follow-up activities list.

    Being proud of your company and product means you deliver better quality

    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. Our ambition is to deliver the right, easy & safe solution to our customers making us the No. 1 choice in fire fighting. dreamteam-lp-co2_2A Danfoss Semco low-pressure CO2 system for the marine segment ready for shipment after final testing.

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

    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.

    After working with water mist from the very beginning, Jens Jepsen has decided to retire at the end of April 2016.

    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

    Annual service in New Zealand

    The Cruise Vessel Silver Discoverer needed an annual service on its Danfoss Semco system, the only challenge was they were in all the way in New Zealand, and they needed the service now! No trouble! Danfoss Semco mobilized its partner network and attended the vessel within 7 days. Not only did the team successfully complete the annual service on board but due to the lack of accommodation on board, the team drove the distance of the island ready to meet the vessel in it next harbor minimizing any passenger disruption.

    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. Shirt with logoDanfoss Semco employee part of team Rynkeby This year Danfoss Semco employee Lars Elkjær joins the Odense team and naturally Danfoss Semco supports the event as a gold sponsor, hence our logo can be found on the Odense team’s shirt.

    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.

    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. IMG_0277Great 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. 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.

    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. 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. 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.

    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.

    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.

    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 today’s fast paced environment... 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.
