Fire Protection in Power Generation Facilities

Fire Protection and Loss Control in Power Generation Facilities:


Power generation facilities vary significantly depending on the mode of Power Generation. For instance, they may be nuclear, hydro-electric, steam powered turbo-generators or wind or tide powered with or without interconnection with private and public utility grids. A combination of facilities is relatively common on large sites.

The analysis of such facilities requires a broad skill set that enables all the risks to be set out and quantified. This in turn will determine the infrastructure for fire protection, response and control. Factored into any analysis are the fire and life safety provisions to align the facility to recognised codes and standards. This in itself is a challenge.

Fire protection of equipment such as turbo-generators are complex with precise cooling systems, containment and suppression for lubrication systems and protection for the associated control centres. The scope of fire and explosion risks make these facilities unique.

Presenter Background:
Luke Morrison of Professional Loss Control will provide an overview of his approach to the assessment, design and fire management of Power Generation Plants illustrated by slides of different facilities assessed in the course of his career.
