External Marine Fire Fighting

Although vessels and offshore production facilities are equipped with onboard fire fighting equipment, a fire can be of such magnitude that it needs additional water or foam capacity provided by a dedicated vessel with external marine fire fighting capabilities. Hydrodiesel delivers the solution that you need.

Whether it is on an oil (production) platform or a seagoing vessel, the outbreak of a fire on board is one of the worst situations a crew can experience. In such a remote location, being hundreds or thousands of miles away from the nearest shore, the potential for loss of life, environmental damage, loss of cargo or (production) assets is a real possibility.

Hydrodiesel provides temporary or (semi) permanent external marine fire fighting systems, with or without marine class notation. Our fire fighting solutions can be of any capacity and configuration.

These systems can be used on vessels whose primary or secondary role is fire fighting of other vessels or structures such as Harbor Tugs, Anchor Handling Tugs (AHT), Offshore Supply Vessels (OSV), or a dedicated fire fighting vessel.

All our solutions are factory tested and performance proven products, ready to install. They are available with Marine Class (ABS, DNV, BV, LRS) witnessed test certificate.
