The HydroPen System

Fighting container fires smarter and more efficiently than ever seen before.

A new innovative and ground-breaking container firefighting technology
The usage of normal water pressure will enable the automatic firefighting

The HydroPen & The Lift

To perform direct firefighting at height the HydroPen drilling unit must be used together with the telescopic lift.

The combination of the HydroPen and the Lift enables the ground-breaking feature of reaching containers at fire at heights and to fully automatically extinguish the fire with direct firefighting.

The HydroPen & The HydroLock

The HydroLock is an add-on device which is clicked on top of the HydroPen drilling unit that enables container fire fighting on all reachable containers.

It replaces the current methods & significantly increases the fire safety.

It’s easy, safe and fast to deploy it on the critical container by mounting it on the locking bar. Hereafter, the automatic firefighting can be initiated at safe distance.

The HydroPen & Foam

Use the HydroPen system normally to drill through the container by using water pressure.

After the penetration is done, then:

  1. Disconnect the fire hose from the fire main.
  2. Empty the water from the hose.
  3. Connect the foam inline inductor.
  4. Activate the water flow

The burning container will be filled with foam at safe distance. The efficiency of fighting Class A & B fires will increase.

The HydroPen & CO2

Use the HydroPen system normally to drill through the container by using water pressure.

After the penetration is done, then:

1. Disconnect the fire hose from the fire main.
2. Empty the water from the hose.
3. Connect the HydroCO2
4. Activate the CO2 bottle.

The burning container will be filled with CO2 at safe distance. The efficiency of fighting Class A & B fires will increase.

Advantages

Fully automated penetration and fire extinguishing
Automatically changes function from penetration mode to fire extinguishing mode and kills the fire inside the burning container.
The HydroPen system can operate both at heights & on reachable containers
The telescopic lift makes it possible to reach a burning container at heights. The HydroLock enables firefighting in containers at deck level and below deck.
100% fire main powered - no electricity required
Water pressure from the already existing fire main system on board vessels create a fast penetration and flow rate.
Simple to operate and mount on the critical container
The mounting process relies only on manpower. It requires little training and low maintenance. The HydroPen system weighs only 9 kilograms.
Protects the crew, the cargo & the ship
The crew can retreat to safety immediately after mounting the Hydropen system, which enables them to keep at a safe distance. It can be used on any ISO shipping container.
Avoidance of significant cost impact - up to $2 million
Minimizes spread of fire to other containers and the need for deviation from the route. Water throw length reaches a full 40 ft container.
