Fire Suppression for Gas or Diesel Generator Rooms

The Next Generation of Fire Protection

Talk To An Expert

Stationary diesel engine driven generators are a cost-efficient method of producing electricity. They are incredibly versatile and can be installed almost anywhere power is required. The generators can be specified to suit requirements ranging from 100 kW up to 14 MW.

It is common to find stationary diesel engine generators in locations where utility service is insufficient or unavailable. Such areas include:

  • Offshore rigs and platforms
  • Mines
  • Construction sites
  • Oil and gas well sites
  • Pump stations

Supplying emergency power is another common reason for the installation of stationary diesel engine generators. In any situation or facility where an uninterruptible power supply is necessary, diesel engine generators are often chosen.

There are many factors and benefits driving the extensive use of diesel engine generators, most notably: wide availability, ease in servicing, cost efficiency (i.e., inexpensive, and readily available diesel fuel), and less stringent enclosure requirements.

There are countless places that diesel engine generations can be used to supply emergency or back-up power, some typical locations include:

  • Hospitals
  • Universities/schools
  • Laboratories
  • Data centers
  • Industrial facilities
  • Resorts
  • Correctional facilities

The Fire Risk

It is critical to note, however, that stationary diesel generators pose a real fire risk. They contain all the components necessary to start a fire. There is diesel fuel and heat from the engine (particularly around the exhaust manifold and muffler). When adding in moving parts, lubricants, hose, wiring, and instrumentation, and then placing it all in an enclosure, the potential for a significant fire is ever-present.

If a diesel generator fire should occur, substantial cost could be involved (in addition to threats to human safety). First, the diesel engine and generator assembly, along with its enclosure, represent a considerable investment. Second, the business interruption following prolonged downtime or the inability to obtain emergency power can cost much, much more. Third, this power interruption can even result in loss of life if, for example, a hospital does not have back-up power available. With the potential of such losses, protecting this energy supply with a proven fire suppression system is an absolute must.

The Solution

The Stat-X® total flooding aerosol system is an ideal, demonstrated, and effective means to protect stationary diesel engine generators. The rapid response of a Stat-X system can quickly suppress fires while they are manageable, reducing damage and downtime. The Stat-X system installation can also be expanded to offer protection to the entire enclosure.
