Two thirds of all on-board fires start in the engine room. The Daspos Leakage Alarm System (LAS-10) detects atmospheric oil and gas leakages in engine rooms caused by undesirable leakage of fuel oils, hydraulic oils and other flammable liquids and gasses within the maritime sector. The detection measure principle is based on unique sensor technology which is targeted at predicting a leakage in the engine room. The system is very reliable - no false alarms caused by human interference etc.
The Daspos Leakage Alarm System is a unique product within its field and is a strong complement to Consilium’s product portfolio within fire- and gas detection and will strengthen our offer to both ship owners and yards, says Marcus Andersson, Vice President Sales and After Sales with Consilium Marine & Safety. The preventive system can be installed as a stand-alone system or as an integrated system to a Consilium fire- or gas detection system.
Consilium has a strong global presence in the marine market and a well-established sales and service organization with local offices and service and support representatives in more than 55 countries. We believe Consilium’s global presence and knowledge within this field will help us develop DASPOS further and fits well into our business plan. Having access to a global service and sales network will also be to the benefit of our customers. Flexibility and reliability is a win-win for everyone in the supply chain, says Lars Gerner Lund, COO and co-founder with DASPOS.
