        在与VIKING救生设备公司达成供应协议后,航运业巨头为其船队配备了HydroPen™消防系统。
 
        世界领先的航运公司之一马士基( A.P. Moller) ——马士基选择全面实施独特且成熟的 HydroPen™ 系统,该系统旨在直接用于商业船舶上堆放的航运集装箱的灭火。该合同是 VIKING 救生设备公司最大的一笔 HydroPen™ 订单,并将为马士基旗下的整个船队配备该系统。
 
        HydroPen™的独特之处在于,它完全由水压通过连接的甲板消防管驱动。当水压启动时,涡轮机将驱动HydroPen™钻井装置,直到它穿透集装箱门,然后系统将向集装箱内喷水,直接从源头灭火。如果是在集装箱堆栈的高处发生火灾,HydroPen™系统可以使用一个伸缩装置进行部署。除了水之外,该系统还可以与泡沫甚至二氧化碳兼容。而且,它使用起来很直观,只需要最少的培训和维护。
 
        VIKING波罗的海地区高级总监Anders Nørgaard Lauridsen说:“从参与早期开发阶段到全面实施HydroPen™系统,马士基再次展示了其毫不妥协的承诺,即超越行业标准,保护其船员和客户的货物和资产。”
 
一个创新而成熟的系统
 
        在谈到HydroPen™系统的独特优势时,VIKING产品经理Lasse Boesen评论说,该系统被推向市场,以解决集装箱火灾继续对该行业造成的日益严重的威胁。Boesen表示:“我们的经验是,一旦一家领先的集装箱公司认识到HydroPen™作为消防工具的有效性,船队通常会采用。HydroPen™可在甲板上或甲板下使用,其在各种规模的集装箱船上的实用性已日益得到认可,并在实际情况下得到了应用。而且,自2019年推出以来,它一直赢得了赞誉——如今,HydroPen™被集装箱航运业最知名的公司所青睐,用于扑灭烟囱中的火灾",
 
        除了系统本身,通过VIKING安全学院平台提供的数字培训,在船上或在线培训船员的灵活性对 "顶级 "客户具有吸引力。在线HydroPen™培训选项获得了评审团的特别赞扬,今年早些时候,该解决方案被选为TT俱乐部的 "安全创新 "奖得主。

A.P. Moller – Maersk to adopt VIKING’s HydroPen™ container firefighting system
 
Shipping major to equip fleet with HydroPen™ firefighting system, following supply agreement with VIKING Life-Saving Equipment.
 
One of the world’s leading shipping companies A.P. Moller – Maersk has opted for full-scale implementation of the unique and proven HydroPen™ system, designed for direct firefighting in stacked shipping containers onboard commercial vessels. The contract represents the single largest HydroPen™ order for VIKING Life-Saving Equipment – and will see systems delivered for the entire fleet of A.P. Moller – Maersk owned vessels.
 
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. Beyond water, the system is compatible with foam or even CO2. Also, it is intuitive to use and requires only a minimum of training and maintenance.
 
“From having been involved in the early development phases to fully implementing the HydroPen™ system, A.P. Moller – Maersk has once again shown its uncompromising commitment to go beyond industry standards, to protect both its crews and its clients cargo and assets” said VIKING’s Anders Nørgaard Lauridsen, Senior Country Director, Baltic Sea.
 
An innovative yet proven system
 
Commenting on the unique benefits of the HydroPen™ system, which was brought to market to tackle the rising threat which container fires continue to pose to the industry, VIKING Product Manager Lasse Boesen comments: “Our experience has been that, once a leading container line appreciates the effectiveness of HydroPen™ as a firefighting tool, fleetwide adoption generally follows. Useable on or below deck, HydroPen™ has increasingly been recognized for its usefulness on board container ships of all sizes, and it has seen action in real situations. “Also, it has been winning plaudits ever since its launch in 2019 – and today, HydroPen™ is preferred by the most well-known names in container shipping for extinguishing fires in the stack”, Boesen said.”
 
Besides the system itself, the flexibility to train crew onboard ship or online is attractive to ‘top-tier’ customers, with digital training offered through the VIKING Safety Academy platform. The online HydroPen™ training option has obtained special praise from a panel of judges which chose the solution as the TT Club’s ‘Innovation in Safety’ award winner earlier this year.
