DNV-GL releases final report on Li-ion Battery Explosion Risk and Fire Suppression

A joint development project by industry-leading companies and DNV-GL, including the Norwegian Maritime Authority, ABB, Kongsberg, Damen, FiFi4Marine, Stena Line and the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment, has concluded that FiFi4Marine has the best heat-mitigating performance compared with all other methods tested for Li-Ion battery fires. They also concluded that direct-injection of water is not recommended for high-voltage systems.

A couple of years ago we started the development of a new type of environmentally-friendly fire extinguishing system for battery fires.

Conventional maritime fire-extinguishing systems are toxic, corrosive and harm marine life. FIFI4MARINE’s system is the only real direct-injection fire-extinguishing system on the market. As well as being effective, it is bio-degradable, fluor-free, non-toxic and non-corrosive. It requires little water, no emergency power & has a long operation time (over 3 hours). The kind of project you just have to support.
