Ørland Main Air Station is situated at the mouth of the Trondheim fjord in Norway and is operated by the Royal Norwegian Air Force. The air station is the base of F-16 fighter aircrafts and a location for E-3A Sentry AWACS’. The main fire risks in hangars are pool fires potentially created due to leakages from the aircraft tanks located in the wings.
The Aircraft Hangars at Ørland Main Air Station are protected by the VID Fire-Kill Model F102-1 Fire Protection Nozzle which is a telescopic nozzle utilizing low pressure watermist to provide fire protection in hangar areas below aircrafts. The F102-1 nozzles were the perfect match for the project because they gave smart and innovative installation and protection with the pop-up solution and at the same time proven firefighting performance.
