Tunnel Fire Tests
FOGTEC’s video series continues. After the first video with impressions of the SOLIT-Research project, we want to give you an insight on FOGTEC’s experience in full scale fire tests. From Class A to Class B tests over to fire sizes of more than 200 MW, FOGTEC gathered a huge amount of data to design our high pressure water mist systems to the costumers needs and the verification for the approval bodies of the performance capabilities. You can find all videos at our YouTube-Channel.
Hotel Steigenberger Europäischer Hof*****
The famous five-star hotel in southern Germany is being refurbished and modernised until end of 2020. The historic group of buildings is planned as a high class resort- and business hotel which includes around 120 rooms, several conference rooms, a beauty- and spa area as well as gastronomy. The total size of the whole complex is about 3000 squaremeters and some parts will be restored while others will be built up completely new. The combination of historical and modern buildings was a special challenge for the requirements to the system engineering. Areas with historic ceilings, cavities or suspended ceilings brought different approaches to the fire protection system. Next to the rooms and all public spaces the FOGTEC system protects gastronomy-areas, kitchens and technical rooms also.
Research and Development in Fire Protection
New Energy Carriers in Vehicles
Current Research Project
The research project "SUVEREN" (Safety of New Energy Carrier Vehicles in Underground Infrastructure Facilities) investigates the influence of new energy carriers (e.g. batteries or hydrogen) on current safety- and fire protection requirements. One main focus is the exposure to needed materials and substances, for example hydrofluric acid, by considering the complete value chain (production, storage, logistics, vehicles in public spaces, infrastructure). With different scenarios the project analyses existing safety concepts and evaluates new risks.
FOGTEC is working with its cooperation partners BAM (Federal Institute for Materials Management) and STUVA e.V. (Research Association for Tunnels and Transportation Facilities).
Associated Partners are DB Service&Station GmbH, the Municipal Fire Brigade of Munich as well as the french research institutes INERIS and CETU.
The project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
Overview Research Projects
