The Hypropen™ Sytem - taking container firefighting to new heights

Finally, there’s a faster, safer and more efficient way to directly fight costly container fires at heights on container vessels.

Powered only by water pressure from the fire main, the HydroPen™ drills through a standard steel container door, then automatically changes mode to extinguish the fire inside.

This unique system consists of a telescopic lift and a drilling/spraying unit to efficiently target the burning container, protecting your operations and increasing the safety of your crew, cargo and vessel.

The groundbreaking feature of the HydroPen™ System is its capability to reach containers at heights and to­fully automatically extinguish the fire inside the burning container with direct firefighting as soon as it has been mounted on the container door.
