WIND TURBINE
“A fire outbreak can catch you offguard when least expected. Your Wind Turbines are highly vulnerable to a fire outbreak.”

CAUSES OF FIRE

  • Lightning strike
  • Mechanical & Electrical Malfunction
  • Maintenance
  • Availability of highly flammable materials such as hydraulic oil and lubricants, composite materials, insulation, and polymers

CAUSING

  • Business downtime
  • Production loss
  • Revenue loss
  • Infrastructure loss
  • Loss of human life

IF, A FIRE IS IGNITED, THEN :

  • The only option is to patiently wait for the fire to burn out the nacelle

CHALLENGES

  • Turbines today are built at a height of 100 to 120 metre, making firefighting literally impossible
  • Remote locations of Wind farms often delays emergency response at site

WEFIRE™ Solution

  • Unlike a total room flooding solution, WEFIRE™ system works to protect the critical assets from within. Hence the system is versatile and not bulky & requires very less gas compared to traditional systems
  • As per NFPA 850, following components in the nacelle and base tower should be protected with an automatic fire suppression system
    • Control Cabinet
    • Converter Cabinet
    • Hydraulic Station
    • Transformer Brake- Capacitor Cabinet
  • The WEFIRE™ Heat Detection tube upon detection, ruptures at the hottest point forming a nozzle like opening. This activates the cylinder valves and the clean agent gas discharges through the opening directly onto the fire
  • The gas is Non-conducting, non-toxic and leaves no residue; hence does not spoil expensive electronics and mission critical servers inside
