The features of Eureka Firewater Pump systems

Bjrge AS, supplies Eureka firewater pump packages with pumps powered either directly by diesel engines, by diesel-electric generators, or by electric dry mounted motors. The Eureka firewater system includes a driver, a pump, and a control system with no need for utility consumption in operation mode. The systems and pumps are in accordance with NFPA 20 regulations. NFPA20 designed systems: We are following the guidelines and principles of the NFPA 20 standard. The pump is rated for for 150% capacity on 65% of the rated head output. The drivers used are either diesel-electric or diesel direct driven. No hydraulics are used. Large capacities and high pressures: The firewater pumps are designed for high output and low energy demand. The Eureka Pumps has no limitation to capacity and pressures required for firewater pump applications on offshore units today. Low System complexity: Through simplicity we achieve higher reliability and lesser possible failure modes. The Eureka firewater system design is clean with few parts and few interfaces. Due to the high output of our pumps we can do the job with only one pump. Complete systems: We supply complete firewater pump packages. All types of enclosures can be delivered. Control systems may be simple NFPA 20 controllers or PLC systems with multiple functions. Extra fuel tanks, fin fan coolers and AFFF systems can be supplied. Self contained systems: The Eureka firewater pump systems are selfcontained and fully operational for 24 hours with all auxiliary equipment. No external influence can stop the firewater pump in a fire emergency situation.

Direct diesel driven deepwell Firewater Pump with angle gear

The most reliable offshore firewater pump system today Description
The pump is a line shaft, end suction multistage centrifugal pump driven by a high-speed direct injection turbo charged diesel engine. The cooling water taken from pump discharge and the complete system is independent of external cooling water. Pump drive is through a short cardan shaft from engine to a right angle gear. The common base plate for pump, engine, gear and accessories is fitted with a large capacity drip pan. Control Panel, start batteries, fuel tank and other accessories can be mounted on the base plate.

Space, weight and cost efficient due to few and simple components. Simple installation and easy alignment. Reinforced vertical bearing arrangement and non-reverse ratchet. Driver and control equipment is located away from flood exposed areas with solid connection to the submerged pump. Non-return valve. Robust, complete and fully mechanical NFPA 20 designed system.

Direct diesel driven deepwell Firewater Pump with angle gear

The most reliable offshore firewater pump system today Deepwell API 610 type (length to 50 meters)
The Eureka deepwell pump is a vertical turbine product lubricated line shaft type pump. It is designed according to API 610 for continuous pumping duty under all operating conditions. For seawater duty the pump is delivered in 25%Cr or 22%Cr Duplex, or Ni-Al Bronze material. The drive shaft is always delivered in 25%Cr Duplex

Non return valve

As the only supplier in the world Eureka can deliver a unique non-return valve located next to the submerged firewater pump. The non-return valve will keep the firewater piping system filled at all times, and hence, reduce the water hammering effects
