FineFog Fire-Fighting System for Algoma

DESMI has signed a fire-fighting package contract for a new building project at 3. MAJ shipyard Croatia. The project is a series of Great Lakes self-unloading bulk carriers, (hull numbers 732/733/527/528/529) classed by LR, and registered under Canadian flag.

The fire-fighting system package includes:

1. Accommodation water sprinkler system for cabins and service space

2. Engine room local application system for engine room high-risk objects

3. C-Loop F500+ water spray system for self-unloading equipment

Some years ago, Algoma had contracted eight new building projects with Nantong Mingde Heavy Industry to build a series of Gearless and Self Unloading Great Lakes Bulkers, and DESMI worked closely with the shipyard and ship owner to make the proposal for a special, owner-required, dry pipe accommodation water sprinkler system and C-Loop F500 fire-fighting system.


Due to good equipment and installation, Algoma supported DESMI FineFogTM fire-fighting systems to be selected to be on board its new-building projects in Croatia.


DESMI has contracted FineFogTM fire-fighting systems for five vessels through the support of the ship owner: Bernie Johnson - Algoma Central Corporation Special Projects Director states: “DESMI has delivered the fire-fighting systems and we are quite satisfied with the support and service we received throughout the design and installation phase of the projects. We were able to find a solution that suited our project requirements for the safety of both our crew and the ship perfectly”.


DESMI FineFogTM fire-fighting systems are used for the following applications:

- Accommodation water sprinkler system
- Engine room local application system
- Water spray system
- Deck/Helideck foam system
