The Next Generation of Fire Protection

Inboard engine compartment fires: a critical threat

Aboard marine vessels, fires are grave emergencies, especially in remote open water, where onboard fire fighting relies on available equipment and crew.

While USCG regulations mandate a minimum standard of firefighting equipment on board, most operators prioritize passing inspections over comprehensive firefighting readiness. Even if the operator exceeds requirements, crew members typically have limited firefighting training and experience.

Fires in inboard engine compartments on smaller vessels can rapidly become catastrophic. Even with a fire port, extinguishing an aggressively burning fire remains uncertain, increasing the risk of vessel abandonment and occupants ending up in the water.

The Fire Risk

  • Limited access to inboard engine compartments
  • Rapid combustion of fiberglass hulls
  • Inadequate firefighting equipment
  • Insufficient crew training
  • Presence of highly flammable fuels and electrical components
  • Constrained space exposed to harsh conditions and varying maintenance levels
