Precious little diamond

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.
