Helideck in Essen (Germany) ready to use!

Monday 15 September 2014

InnoVfoam engineers recently commissioned the foam fire suppression system at the helideck of the hospital in Essen, Germany. InnoVfoam supplied, in order from helideck manufacturer Bitschnau from Austria, a “plug and play” foam system with VdS approved main components.

The components, consisting of a firefighting pump with control cabinet, foam proportioning system with test facility and valves, are mounted on a steel frame. The frame was hoisted to a room underneath the helideck.

Two electrically operated fire monitors guarantees an effective foam distribution over the entire helipad securing a safe landing place. The foam concentrate used in this system is the fluorine-free, ICAO approved, Re-Healing RF3 foam from Solberg Scandinavian.

The commissioning took place under great interest of local authorities, fire department, inspecting authorities and hospital staff.
