Pool fires on FPSOs

The video below shows a KFX® simulation of a very big pool fire on the main deck with a pool area about 800 m2. The analysis was a combined safety/design analysis, and focused on heat loads on process equipment and necessary actions in that respect to improve safety of the ship and its personnel.

The two videos below show a KFX® simulation of a pool fire on sea generated by an oil leakage on the FPSO. The smoke and heat impacts the escape routes that are located along the sides of the ship as shown on the first video. The second video (at the right) shows what a person will experience when running along the escape route on the port side for this fire situation. The analysis focused on personnel safety and escape, and necessary actions to satisfy requirements in this respect.
