Four double headed hydrants with hose box and accessories are also provide at jetty head .

A foam trolley of 200 liters is located at jetty head.


Water spray /water curtain is also located at the jetty head.

FIRE WATER DELUGE SYSTEM

Medium velocity fixed water facility are installed which are automatically activated on the detection of a fire by two separate sensors or by manual from the FGS PANEL in the MCR are installed in the following locations : BOG COMPRESSOR SUCTION DRUM BOG COMPRESSORS RECONDENSERS HP LNG SEND OUT PUMPS METRING PIPING FUEL GAS ELECTRIC &AMBIENT HEATER STV STRUCTURE SCV AREA LNG MANIFOL D (HJETTY AREA ) LNG drain drum Diesel l tank area Electrical transformers DENSE WATER CURTAINS ARE ALSO PROVIDED FOR : Jetty face& personal access route HP LNG pumps shed BOG compressor shed TTLF

HIGH EXPANSION FOAM SYSTEM

High expansion foam system is installed fro LNG drain pits v-902 & v-903 system is automatically activated on detection of an LNG spill. Foam system can be operated manually by local control panel or the FGS panel. A foam depth of 1.8 m can be achieved with in 1 minute with foam storage for 1hour operation. Foam system will stop after 3 minutes & need to be manually restarted if required.

INERGEN -FIXED FLOODING SYSTEM IN MAIN CONTROL ROOM


Inergen system is installed in main control room at engineering room, rack room & battery room and also in GTG PANEL ROOM. Inergen system consist of a mixture of gases that is Nitrogen- 50.5 %, Argon -40.5 % & CO2- 9% Inergen system is operated automatically by sensing of cross zone fire detectors. Prior alarm is sounded before actual activation as a warning of gas release & with warning to escape from the area immediately.

Actuation involves release of gas in the concerned area & subsequent fire extinguishment by the oxygen depletion potential of the gas. After fire extinguishment is achieved by the release of gas the affected area is ventilated to facilitate the release of inergen gas from the spot.

NITROGEN -FIXED FLOODING SYSTEM IN GTG & ELEC. SUB STATION


Nitrogen system is installed in phase II GTG PANEL ROOM, & Electrical sub station PLC room. Nitrogen system consist of 100% Nitrogen gas in cylinder at 280 bar pressure. Nitrogen system is operated automatically by sensing of cross zone fire detectors. Prior alarm is sounded before actual activation as a warning of gas release & with warning to escape from the area immediately.

Actuation involves release of gas in the concerned area & subsequent fire extinguishment by the oxygen depletion potential of the gas. After fire extinguishment is achieved by the release of gas the affected area is ventilated to facilitate the release of Nitrogen gas from the spot.

CO2-FIXED FLOODING SYSTEM AT GTG

CO2 fixed flooding system comprise release of carbon dioxide gas in the enclosed area of GTG which is on fire. The fire is sensed by cross zone of fire detectors installed in GTG which gives indication to the master cylinder of CO2 fix flooding system for release of carbon dioxide in the fire affected area. Carbon dioxide gas smothers the fire, that is cut off the oxygen supply by way of its oxygen depletion potential. After the fire is extinguished the doors of the concerned GTG are opened to stimulate the escape of gas from the area.

System can also be button.

operated manually

FIRST AID FIRE FIGHTING

Portable fire extinguishers for the purpose of first aid fire fighting are installed and placed in various location relevant to the hazard in the area. Dry chemical powder, Foam & CO2 type fire extinguishers are kept in plant location as a means of first aid fire fighting. Regular training on use of first aid fire extinguisher is imparted by fire department regularly for effective use portable extinguisher in case of fire.

DESCRIPTION OF FIRE, GAS & SPILL DETECTION


The fire, gas & spill detection facility is installed on the LNG terminal identifies 14 areas for constant monitoring .These areas are : Jetty head Trestle & unloading drain drum LNG TANK T101 & T102 LNG TANK T103 & T104 Recondenser LNG HP pumps BOG compressors Shell & Tube vaporizers Process drain drum Submerged combustion vaporizers Fuel gas heater Metering station Pig launcher & metering station TTLF

DESCRIPTION OF FIRE ,GAS & SPILL DETECTION

The area identification is displayed on the mimic panel in the main control room. Depending upon the risk in above mentioned area, various detection devices are located for detecting gas leak, fire, LNG spill. For gas leak detection alarms at 20%& 60% LEL alarm comes in the MCR. The gas detector are catalytic & will lead to emergency shutdown via two gas detectors sensing 60% LEL voting system. The fire detectors are of UV/IR type and any two of which in a given plant area will automatically activate that areas fire water deluge system. Buildings are protected by smoke detectors that are installed in all rooms, cable trenches and sub floor areas. If fire is detected in a building then the common alarm is activated on the fire alarm system panel as well as in the FGS system in control room and fire station. Manual call points are installed in the plant areas & building to communicate fire by breaking of the glass.
