Fires aboard ships are both dangerous and costly. There is no possibility for the people aboard to escape and great values are at risk. Each year, a couple of hundred fires aboard merchant ships are registered, the majority occurring from leaks in the engine room. Some fires result in loss of lives, while others “only” means high costs for repairs and losses related to deriving logistic issues.


Our Solution

LAS-10 – a fire-prevention “Leakage Alarm System” is our solution. The functionality of our Leakage Alarm System is based on a very large amount of air flow – 10.000 liters per minute – which is led through a detection chamber and trough a specially designed filter mesh.

The electronics in the detector combines and analyzes the content of both the oil sprays and gases, which are detected by a sudden increase of collected oil or by the electronic gas sensor.

No other solution on the market combines these two detection methods, or even using our patented technique as an indicator of fire and explosion risk. Moreover, the large air flow is a much quicker indicator of potential risk than previously seen in other detection systems using i.e. light scatter.
