HydroPen

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.

Container fires put your crew, cargo and business at serious risk – and they are notoriously difficult to fight, particularly when high up in the vessel’s container stack.

Traditionally, these fires have been fought by dowsing the burning container and its surroundings with water – a drawn-out and highly inefficient approach that can cause more damage to cargo than the fire itself.

The HydroPen system from VIKING Life-Saving Equipment offers a far superior solution and has already been adopted by several of the largest operators in the container shipping industry.

WHAT

The HydroPen system makes it possible to directly extinguish container fires at heights, at deck & below deck on board cargo vessels. No other solution can do that.

HOW

The HydroPen is unique in the sense that it is driven purely by water pressure through an attached deck fire hose. When water pressure is activated, a turbine will drive the HydroPen drilling unit until it penetrates the container door, whereupon the system will spray water into the container to extinguish the fire directly at the source.

In the case of a fire at height in the container stack, the HydroPen system can be deployed using a telescopic device.

WHY

The HydroPen system will improve the safety for the crew, the cargo and the ship, and it will help the ship owner avoid fire related risks to crews and assets – along with significant related financial costs.

"We were involved in a recent case with Georg Duncker. In this case, the container was luckily at a reachable level from the lashing bridges. Nevertheless, the HydroPen was used with great succes. ..."
