Power Generation

Power Generation Fire Suppression Systems

Fire hazards such as large quantities of fuel, combustible/flammable liquids, electrical hazards, combustible dusts and warehousing are common in electric power generating plants. Power generators and distributors pose a serious fire risk to equipment and assets as well as the generators themselves. Commonly generators are there for back up purposes so having an automatic fire suppression system from Atlas World means peace of mind in knowing you have protection for when it’s needed.

Ensure a high level of protection from the risk of fire

When a generator operates, the surfaces of the engine and exhaust system can have temperatures that exceed the auto-ignition temperature of the fluids used in the generator. When those fluids leak or spray onto hot surfaces, e.g. diesel fuel, engine oil, they can cause a fire that can be very difficult to extinguish by sprinklers alone. Add to the equation the presence of oxygen from heavy ventilation and open dampers to promote air flow, and you have a high risk situation. Generator fires can threaten the life safety of occupants within the building, but are more likely to disable the backup power system to the point that it cannot support the emergency power needs of the facility.

Most fires caused by generators are fast flaming fires

These large machines, operating at high speeds, high temperatures and high pressure contain large quantities of flammable lubricating oil and therefore constitute a major fire risk. Our expert team of engineers design and install fire suppression systems which can be tailored to your equipment and environment, even using clean agents to ensure your machinery remains undamaged. Heat, fuel leaks and faulty electrical leads can all start fires, but you can protect your high value assets and avoid operational downtime through fire suppression for generators.

Testimonials

“Atlas World provided us with an innovative fire suppression solution for our Doppstadt DW-3060 Shredder. This shredder handles a range of recycling applications, including plastic recycling, e-waste recycling, scrap metal, tyre and wood recycling. With an increase in combustible items such as lithium-ion batteries in our waste stream, this creates the perfect storm for fire incidents. By Atlas World installing their Fire Suppression system onto our Shedder, this has minimised the risk to our staff, premises and machinery.  We would have no hesitation in recommending their services.”

Michael McLarnon – Consultant at ISL Waste Management

Testimonials

“Fire is a real threat within our industry; materials processed in the waste & recycling industry are unpredictable and can be very flammable. With the risk of inherent fire increasing, Avenue Recycling deployed the expertise of Atlas World to install their fire suppression systems onto our JCB, Bailer and Electrical cabinet. This will mitigate fire as early in the process as possible. Atlas World provided first class customer service and their expert advice was invaluable. I would strongly recommend any company with fire risks to contact Atlas World.”
