Fire-fighting system upgrade

A major aspect of the maintenance program at Black Sea Terminal (BST) is the upgrade and maintenance of the firefighting system.


The firefighting system must be regularly maintained and tested under the control of a planned maintenance system. The major challenge is the corrosion control of the firefighting lines. But with the qualified corrosion control team at Black Sea Terminal, and preventive measures like planned NDT and visual inspections of the system, BST is able to spot any potential risk or failure and intervene before something becomes a critical issue.


Following the thorough corrosion analysis undertaken in 2019, the Maintenance Department in conjunction with the Operations Department has launched the upgrade of the firefighting system. As part of the upgrade process, several meters of the foam and water lines have been replaced with new ones to make sure the system is at the highest level of availability and reliability.
