Offshore production – firewater systems

When it counts: firefighting solutions you can rely on

Firewater pumps are the heart of an FPSO’s firefighting system. It is vital that the pumps be reliable in extreme conditions and run for extended periods of time.

Products
  • Diesel hydraulic driven pumping unit for firefighting
    Firewater pumps lie at the heart of a firefighting system. Reliable operation under extreme time conditions is a key requirement.

  • HSA axially split single stage between bearing pump
    The HSA API 610 (ISO 13709) Type BB1 is an axially split, single stage, horizontal, double suction, between bearing pump. The Sulzer HSA product range is ideal for long term continuous running services in refineries and pipelines. Its robust casing and custom hydraulics are specifically designed to ensure maximum availability and reduced total life cycle costs. The HSAv with its vertical shaft is used offshore where deck space is limited.
