Abstract
The FiST-project “New Technologies for Fire Suppression On Board Naval Craft”, is a trilateral (Canada, the Netherlands, Sweden) research project under the CAN/NLD/SWE Cooperative Science and Technology MOU. The focus of the project is active fire fighting on navy ships. As part of this collaborative project, three gaseous fire suppression agents, NOVEC1230, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide, were evaluated to determine their efficacy in suppressing fires and preventing re-ignition in an electrical cabinet. The testing, carried out at SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden, Boras, Sweden in November/December 2013, also monitored the toxicity and corrosivity of degradation products arising from the suppressants and cooling of the space. The report presents and discusses the results of the testing.
