Diesel/Hydraulic Driven System

The diesel/hydraulic is suitable when the main fire pump installation must be done above the draught line, typically in a compartment below deck in the fore peak. A hydraulic driven lift pump will be installed taking suction from a sea chest, pumping the water to the booster pump connected directly to the main diesel engine.


A system for such installation consists of the following as minimum

  • Diesel Engine
  • Booster Pump
  • Lift Pump
  • Hydraulic System
  • NFPA 20 Controller
  • Room Cooler

Containerized Fire Water Pump Packages

The enclosure is H-60 insulated in material AISI 316 stainless steel. All our containerised equipment is designed for easy installation and good access to all major components. The units may be equipped with fire and gas detection and fire extinguishing system.

  • Fire rated container (A-60, H-60, H-120)
  • Full CO2 Extinguishing system
  • Fire Detectors and alarms
  • In built diesel fuel tank

A full String Test is performed for the complete Fire Water Pump Package at our Singapore plant for all types of FWPP configuration.
