JRC/Alphatron Marine is proud to announce their new solution, the AlphaHeatDetectionSystem. Onboard you have to deal with various dangers and risks. For example, the possible threats as heat sources enter the vessel undetected. Between 2005 and 2016 alone, 35 fires were detected and registered on RoRo ships. In all identified cases, the fire was caused by a vehicle or cargo. But what if you can be ahead of this, and the heat can be detected in an early stage, even before smoke or fire are seen. Early detection is often cited as key to preventing loss of life, ship and extensive cargo damage. Therefore, we developed the AlphaHeatDetectionSystem.
This system offers a cost-effective safety measure which can identify and prevent hazardous situations for all types of RoPax vessels. The investment that must be made for this system to cover the Gross and Net Cost of Averting a Fatality (GCAF/NCAF) will stay far below the standard. In some situations, regular fire alarm sensors do not detect heat/smoke or detect it too late. This thermal network bullet camera is applied to perimeter defense and fire-prevention purposes. The AlphaHeatDetectionSystem helps to identify these hazardous situations in an early stage, before a heat source ignites, even when partly covered or in heavy rain. You can even unburden captain and crew by remote monitoring through satellite connection.
The AlphaHeatDetectionSystem was extensively tested with different fire scenarios to challenge the system, taking into account the effects of ventilation, weather and other relevant factors. The test carried out on the Stena Scandinavica and witnessed by Class Society Bureau Veritas Marine and Offshore and RISE Fire Research AS, was concluded with positive results, reflecting the system is able to more rapidly detect heat sources compared to common smoke detectors.
Sister ship Stena Transit is now also equipped with the AlphaHeatDetectionSystem on the weather deck. “It is an innovative project which needed a lot of time and investment of both parties. The results are very good with high potential. It did meet our expectations”, concludes Peter van de Wardt, Senior Master on the RoRo Stena Transporter.
