Wind Turbine Fire Suppression Systems

AF-X Fireblocker - Environmentally friendly fire extinguishing system

Wind turbine fire suppression

Fire extinguishing system for Wind Turbines with AF-X Fireblocker

Wind turbines are high-tech power plants. A wind turbine is driven by wind, which generates electricity in the generator. It actually works like a big dynamo. In the transformer, which in most cases is also located in the head of the wind turbine, the current is converted into a high voltage, so that the generated current can be effectively displaced.

The construction and maintenance of wind turbines entail high investments. For a very small investment, the wind turbines are protected against fire. AF-X Fireblocker aerosol extinguishing systems and automatic fire extinguishers are perfectly suited for wind turbine fire suppression. Whether protecting electrical systems, generators or entire turbines. A simple AF-X Fireblocker installation can prevent the loss of a multi-million investment due to a fire.

Wind Turbine Fire suppression system with AF-X Fireblocker
High fire risk

If a fire breaks out in windmills or wind turbines, fighting the fire from the ground is impossible

The wind turbine’s nacelle contains brakes, switch boxes, transmissions and converters. Due to the combination of these parts and lubricants, grease, plastic and electronic components, there is a high fire risk in the nacelle. Short circuit, overload, overheating and lightning stroke are the main causes of fire in a wind turbine.

Fire Safety at the Source

By protecting directly at the source of the fire with AF-X Fireblocker, you significantly reduce the risk of (damage from) fire. Short circuits and overheating are usually the cause of fires. The fire is extinguished directly with our wind turbine fire suppression system. The fire damage will be limited to the part that caused the fire.

Minimal down-time with AF-X Fireblocker

Priority is to have the wind turbine running again a.s.a.p. after an extinguishing. Thanks to the integrated connector, the AF-X Fireblocker is a plug-and-play-system and results in faster installation giving less downtime of the turbine. So a quick exchange of faulty electrical boxes or other components and the exchange of extinguishing generators and your wind turbine is up and running again in a few hours.

The Secret of Success in Wind Turbine fire suppression

So why are our AF-X Fireblocker Aerosol Fire Suppression Systems the unique answer to wind turbine fire suppression?

Compact, with a flawless and quick installation

The interior design of turbines leaves little space for other installations, such as fire extinguishing systems. The dimensions of the AF-X Fireblocker BM are 25 x 25 x 30 cm, taking up a fraction of the space other systems use.

Extra protection time after activation

A fire extinguishing system with AF-X Fireblocker ensures after activation that the aerosol keeps floating homogeneously in the protected area for at least 60 minutes. With AF-X Fireblocker fire protection you do not have to worry that re-ignition may occur.

Easy installation & low maintenance ensures low costs

The fire extinguishing system with AF-X Fireblocker are easy to install and requires only visual maintenance. The generators are being activated by an electrical ignitor. Meaning no piping and only electrical wiring to make a system. (E-Installer)

The AF-X Fireblocker has a lifespan of 15 years and therefore has a low TCO (Total Cost of Ownership).

How it works?

AF-X Fireblocker generators have an extinguishing agent which is a solid aerosol-forming compound in a non-pressurized generator. The aerosol is self-generated by a combustion process of the solid aerosol-forming compound, activated by an electrical ignitor.


A few things we’re great at in Wind turbine fire suppression

The fight against fire has been fundamentally improved by the use of the aerosol fire extinguishing systems. The dry aerosol is a solid that, once activated, blocks the fire in its origin.
