The assignment for AF-X
During an audit by the insurance company, Goeyvaerts-R became aware of the risks of fire and the impact this would have on the company. This led to the insight that fire protection systems were required for nine cranes.
Two objectives were predetermined: firstly, the safety of the personnel and secondly, to minimize damage in case of fire. In addition, the engine compartments of the cranes are located at a height of 6 meters and are difficult to reach. The system had to be compact and lightweight. The nine cranes selected for the fire protection system are operational 24/7. The flexibility of AF-X and the plug & play system of the AF-X Fireblocker made it possible to protect the cranes against fire in a window of 6 hours.
