PSV Neptun Express – Fire Detection Retrofit

The platform supply vessel "Neptun Express" formerly utilized the Servoteknikk BMS-904 fire alarm system, which has been discontinued for several years. As spare parts for this system are increasingly rare and expensive, the vessel owners made the strategic decision to upgrade to a contemporary and cost-effective fire alarm system. This upgrade not only enhances safety measures but also ensures long-term operational efficiency.

The platform supply vessel “Neptun Express” was equipped with the good old Servoteknikk BMS-904 fire alarm system. Since this system is out of production for years now and spares are continuously becoming scarcer and more expensive, the owners decided it was time to upgrade the system to a modern and cheaper to operate system.

Lavastica opted for the easy to maintain and economical FireFinder Marine addressable fire alarm panel with Apollo Discovery Marine addressable detectors and call points. These detectors are on average 60 to 70% cheaper than the detectors of some of the main competitors. Furthermore, with the proposed retrofit system the customer could keep the existing cables, which saves a lot of time and money.

The programming, configuration and addressing was done by Lavastica’s service department remotely, which gave the satisfied customer an almost “plug & play” solution. With this new system, the customer will save a lot of money in spares and most importantly will have many more years of safe sailing.
