New Video from the FOGTEC series!
This new video shows how a high pressure water mist system can help the fire brigade to get close to the source of the fire and finally extinguish it. After activation of the FFFS the heat radiation is kept small. In this monthly video you can clearly see how close the fire brigade can stand next to a 150 MW Class A Fire which is already fully developed. To simulate a worst case scenario the FFFS was activated after the fire reached the HRR of 150 MW. As a fire inside a tunnel can reach very high temperature, it is important to supports the fire brigade in their work. The water mist system helps the fire fighters in their actions to finally extinguish the fire.
FOGTEC recommends to keep the system activated as long as the fire brigade is working on putting the fire out.
With a long experience in fire tests, FOGTEC can revert to a huge database to design fire fighting systems for custom-made solutions. Be sure to subscribe and be updated in time about a new video release every month!

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.
