January 2013 - Fire Safety Wind Turbine - Wind Energy


Wind Turbine locations are often remote and hardly accessible locations for the fire brigade, ambulance etc. With their increasing height wind turbines are almost impossible to extinguish the fire for the fire brigade. There is also an additional risk of accidents by falling burning material of the wind turbine. A fire situation where people are present in the wind turbine is an extremely dangerous situation, it is almost impossible to escape in time.

For this reason, wind turbines must be equipped with a highly efficient fire detection and firefighting system that in time fights the fire with the safety of the attendees. DEF Netherlands B.V. has a high quality fire detection and firefighting system developed for wind turbines if you wish, you can respond to info@def-fire.nl for more information.
