Haihao Group called attention to the safety risks of ship pipeline systems
Haihao Group, as an enterprise deeply engaged in the field of pipeline system for many years, is deeply aware of the importance and potential risks of ship pipeline system. A recent Marine Accident Investigation Bureau (MAIB) case has reminded us again of the potential fire risks in ship piping systems.
According to the report, the accident occurred on the ro-ro ship F, a fuel hose problem caused the fire, the sub-engine room equipment was severely damaged.The wiring under the turbocharger covered by the hose insulation pad was found to be at risk of exposure to high temperatures and difficult to inspect. Moreover, the ship’s auxiliary aircraft alarm system had been modified without the approval of the classification Society.
In this case, we can see that good system design, installation and maintenance are essential to reduce the risk of fire in mechanical premises.The guidelines of the International Maritime Organization (IMO), the specifications of classification societies and the SOLAS Convention all provide corresponding methods and measures.However, if these specifications are not properly implemented, a variety of products in the pipeline system can be a safety hazard.
Haihao Group has been committed to providing high quality piping system products and services to ensure the safety of ships.Our pipework solutions use high quality materials and advanced manufacturing processes in accordance with API international standards and Classification Society regulations. (At present, we have passed the ABS, DNV, RS, RINA, BV five classification societies certification) We also provide comprehensive technical support and after-sales service, to help customers ensure that the installation and maintenance of piping system in line with industry standards, reduce possible safety risks.
For the fuel hose mentioned in the accident, we recommend that customers have the option of using a hard metal pipe or installing an isolation valve at the supply point of the fuel supply unit to reduce the risk of piping failure.At the same time, we will remind customers to pay attention to the installation and maintenance of various pipeline products in the pipeline system to ensure that they comply with international standards and classification society regulations.
As an expert in Marine pipeline systems, industrial piping systems and other types of piping systems, we will continue to adhere to the concept of high quality and high safety, to provide customers with the best quality pipeline products and services, to protect the safety of navigation.
