Sea-Fire hosts seminar in Taiwan


Sea-Fire Marine of Baltimore recently hosted a training seminar at the Horizon Group shipyard in Taiwan on Sea-Fire's latest fire-suppression and detection-systems technology.

More than 25 Horizon employees attended the session. The event covered Sea-Fire's history, worldwide service locations, and its entire line of engineered and pre-engineered systems, electronics and accessories.

Topics included what causes a fire and where most fires occur. Attendees also learned that Sea-Fire's environmentally friendly FM-200 agent extinguishes a fire by removing the heat.

The seminar focused on finding the right products and features for the best possible protection of an area. Automatic or manual time delays, warning alarms and other features were discussed. It concluded with correct system installation and fitting, as well as time for questions and answers.
