In past 10 years ago, Solving the problem of fan fire protection is a big problem, as the wind turbine is a big guy and high value equipment, but in the engine room the space is a bit narrow, not be able to install FM200 and other gas suppression systems, instead at that time many wind turbine engineering and fire engineering companies choose to install ABC dry chemical fire suppression device, the dry powder product is also small guy and could be installed inside the wind turbine very well, but one drawback limits its application, that is: ABC dry powder is not easy to clean up and will damage the wind turbine components.
So these installation company become to search for a better fire suppression solution for wind turbine, they find out that condensed aerosol fire extinguisher will be an alternative, specially the mini type much more better.
Then Firepro, Stat-X, Pyrogen, DSPA and Minisol Became their first choice to install in wind turbines.
Only in the year 2021, millions of wind turbines are required to install aerosol generator inside the wind turbine engine room and electrical cabinets, it is required that large-sized aerosol for wind turbine engine room for total flooding, and small-size aerosol for electrical cabinet for local application.
Wind turbines works 24 hours a day without being watched, after long time opeartion and it is easy to get thermal runaway.
there is a article to describe about it: how do wind turbine works?
Some partners asked that ” why aerosol fire extinguisher is better solution for wind turbine fire protection?”, for this question, we need to explain about the advantages of aerosol:
There is not only aerosol installed in wind turbines, but need to accompany with some other accessories and supporting equipment:
Frequent occurrence of wind power fire resulting in increased demand for wind power fire protection, every year all over the world thousands of wind turbine suffer from fire, and only in China in last month June of 2022, there are 25 wind power fire accidents happened in wind farms. this is terrible!
So now in China, every wind farm the first thing their do is to install an aerosol fire fire extinguisher in wind turbine, it is cost effective and value-able for them to do this, in the world-wide wind industry, many wind power farms also choose to install AEROSOL SYSTEM as their best fire suppression choice. is perfect for wind turbine fire.
For more details about WIND TURBINE FIRE PROTECTION, ELECTRICAL CABINET SUPPRESSION, VEHICLES FIRE PROTECTION, contact the engineer from our company and we will explain more.
