Diesel hydraulic driven pumping unit for firefighting

Hydraulic fire fighters for extreme conditions

Firewater pumps lie at the heart of a firefighting system. Reliable operation under extreme time conditions is a key requirement. Our self-contained hydraulic drive fire pump system delivers optimum performance and features to ensure minimum maintenance is required due to long periods on standby.

Diesel-hydraulic driven pumping unit for firefighting
Main benefits
  • Reliable operation under extreme conditions
  • Minimum maintenance is required even during long periods on standby
  • Self-contained, containerized module supports a diesel drive, booster pump, hydraulic power unit, fuel system, and all other systems required to operate the unit
  • Absence of 90 degree gearboxes for lineshaft pumps or the high-voltage electric cables associated with electro-submersible solutions makes the unit extremely robust in an emergency situation
  • Package is designed to produce the full pressure needed at deck level, thus dispensing with the need for a booster
  • Absence of 30 – 40 m long lineshafts, with several intermediate bearings, is a key advantage in terms of maintenance and reliability
Main applications
  • Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) unit
  • Production platforms
  • Drill ships
