Direct firefighting in shipping containers
Automatic & direct firefighting in containers at all levels
Significant improved fire safety & costs avoidance
Innovative & award-winning firefighting equipment
What we do
An industry pain
Today it is not possible to perform direct firefighting in a burning container at heights. The crew does not stand a real chance of fighting the fire efficiently.
Container fires both at deck level and below deck level are inefficiently fought today and puts the crew in a very dangerous situation.
If a container fire is not addressed fast and efficiently it will spread quickly and it can lead to significant human – and financial costs.
The HydroPen System
The HydroPen system is a new innovative and ground-breaking container firefighting technology. The HydroPen is a water-based drilling machine. It uses only water pressure from the fire main to drill through a container door.
The HydroPen will improve the safety for the crew, the cargo & the ship, and it will help the ship owner avoid significant fire related costs.
See how it works
The water pressure flows into a hydrodynamic turbine, which rotates and drives the automatic drilling process. A hole saw and a nozzle at the end of the HydroPen drilling unit will penetrate the container.
Once penetrated, the drilling unit automatically changes mode, shutting off the water supply to the turbine and instead guides the water through the nozzle to spray inside the burning container and creates immediate firefighting.
The system can operate with both water, foam and CO2
