Fire Suppression Systems in Wind Turbines

Fire Suppression Systems in Wind Turbines

A fire in a wind turbine is pretty rare but it can still happen. Fires, especially in wind turbines, can cause irreparable damage which is why a fire suppression system is so important to install. It is a small price to pay to protect your investment.

According to the United States Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, fire suppression systems in wind turbines are not required but highly recommended.  Because there are no set regulations, many choose to look over this to save money or develop their own fire emergency plans.

Although fires are a rare occurrence, the results from one can cost the owner of the turbine a lot of money and long shut down times. It is hard to think of a good reason not to have fire protection for your wind turbines. Add to this the fact that wind turbines are so high, they are often out of reach for a fire department, it just makes sense to include fire protection.
