The fire deluge system is critical for ensuring safety onboard any offshore production facility.

As a consequence, the industry has suffered from costly shutdowns and repairs, and in the worst case, risk of failure in an emergency. To prevent these issues, operators are investigating corrosion- free alternatives.
