Read about our recent projects.

MF Ryfylkeferjen

Ryfylkeferjen

Westcon are building an aluminium battery hybrid ferry for Norled. RAFT have been chosen to deliver an innovative solution for fire suppression and cooling of the aluminium deck.

For Ryfylkeferjen, RAFT suppression have delivered water mist for machinery spaces, and the foam system for car deck areas.

 

The aluminium construction makes the vessel lighter, but the material properties represent a greater challenge regarding fire protection. This require extra capacity and cooling to protect the construction from fire that could potentially damage the structure.

In collaboration with Westcon and LMG, we have found a solution approved by the Norwegian Maritime Directorate.
