The project in brief

Together with our Turkish partner, Marsis, we have supplied the fire protection for the Norwegian ferry Bastø Electric – the world’s largest all-electric ferry.

The ferry is owned by Norwegian Bastø Fosen and will be operating the busy route between Moss and Horten in Oslofjord beginning of February 2021. Bastø Electric is 144 m long and capable of carrying 600 people and 200 vehicles.

 

To comply with the environmentally friendly vision of the busy Norwegian ferry route, VID Fire-Kill Low Pressure Watermist systems were chosen as the fire protection for the electric vessel.

Why was a VID Fire-Kill solution chosen?

The VID Fire-Kill Low Pressure Watermist systems offer:

  • Green and sustainable solutions,
  • Potable water as the only extinguishing agent,
  • Low water requirements,
  • Low power requirements,
  • Easy installment and maintenance.

 

Some specifics

VID Fire-Kill automatic nozzles and open Low Pressure Watermist nozzles are installed in the accommodation areas and in the machine rooms.
