In an astonishing, new video at youtu.be/jYtv46xvBj8, Unifire AB of Sweden shows live tests of its state-of-the-art FlameRanger™ fully autonomous fire detection and suppression system.
As seen in the video, FlameRanger detects, follows in real time, and dynamically suppresses fires, without any human involvement.
Typically it puts water (or foam) directly onto the fire within 10 seconds from ignition. It automatically turns the water on when fire is detected, and shuts the water off when it has been extinguished.
The Swedish system is designed to protect large areas, such as waste and recycling facilities, aircraft hangars, historical buildings, atriums, naval and commercial vessels, ro-ro weather decks, helidecks, tunnels, large storage facilities, etc.
The tests in this video were conducted in June, 2020, at Guttasjön Fire training site, outside Borås, Sweden, as part of the EU-funded LASH FIRE project.
LASH FIRE aims to develop maritime fire safety solutions with innovative technologies, operations and applications. It will provide a basis for revision of international maritime regulations. The consortium is coordinated by RISE Research Institutes of Sweden and comprises 26 partners from 13 Member States of the EU, including Unifire AB of Sweden.
