The operational safety of the Pohjanmaa-class corvettes will be ensured with Marioff’s Heavy Duty Electric Pump Unit (EPU HD) based HI-FOG system. The EPU HD is designed to meet very demanding specifications and extreme operational conditions. Throughout this project, Marioff is closely cooperating with all stakeholders to provide a tailored solution based on its long experience in protecting surface and subsurface vessels and their crews from fire.
