Many storage tanks in South Korea are located in the vicinity of residential areas, this involves great risks. That is why the government must take additional security measures. The storage tanks at Hanwha Total Petrochemical were only protected with fire detection systems. Our local agent, LyeonTech, has introduced our automatic CFI rim seal extinguishing gas systems as a possible solution at Hanwha Total Petrochemical. This would extend the fire protection to automatic detection and extinguishing.
Harm Straathof (Sales Manager Saval) supervised together with our local agent LyeonTech, the on-site installation and commissioning. A special aspect of this project was the installation of the system on live tanks, tanks that are operational. This means that ‘hot works’ such as welding, drilling, sawing are not allowed. The units are therefore glued to the roof of the tanks.
