Nero Industries to Prevent Ship Fires

Drawing upon the experience gained in fire extinguishing systems in land vehicles, Nero Industries has developed the ARES MARINE system for surface platforms.

Unlike the ARES systems developed for land vehicles, ARES MARINE follows a six-stage approach that prioritises the crucial sections of the ship aboard which the system is to be integrated based on the threat of fire. Areas in which a fire could cause an explosion are given the highest priority, while sections where the risk of the fire spread and the threat of death are low are considered low level priority. Explosion suppression systems are installed in high priority sections, such as ammunition depots and the engine room where there are large quantities of flammable and explosive materials, while fire extinguishing systems are installed in places such as kitchens and living areas where the risk of explosion is low, but the risk of loss of life is high. Sensor systems are installed in low-priority sections, such as decks, where fires are relatively easy to extinguish.

The ARES family of Nero Industries features UV/IR detectors with that are able to detect fires and explosions electro-optically, to transmit the information to control units and to ensure the extinguishing tubes detonate automatically. Furthermore, for applications on surface platforms, the company has been developing smoke detectors that are designed to comply with IP67 standards and be ex-proof. The qualification tests of these detectors are continuing.
