Firetrace launches fire detection system

Firetrace has launched XD Tubing, a fire detection product designed to mitigate the risk of fire and total loss in offshore and near shore wind turbines.

The product detects fires by sensing either heat or flame, and resists corrosion, creep, and ozone exposure.

Angela Krcmar, global sales manager – wind at Firetrace, commented: “This product was designed to ensure that near-shore and offshore turbines could have the most robust and cost-effective fire suppression solution available in wind turbines worldwide.

“Following an extensive testing period, we’re happy to announce the launch of XD Detection Tubing, so that we can continue our work with world-leading OEMs/developers dedicated to combating climate change and ensuring the safety of their staff and the industry.”
