Marioff has signed a contract with the Satakunta Hospital District in Finland to provide a HI-FOG® high-pressure water mist suppression system to the psychiatric hospital in Pori. The HI-FOG system will protect the building from fire, which spans 20,000 square meters. The system includes a HI-FOG Land Pump Unit (LPU) and 3,500 sprinklers. Installations are scheduled to start in the fall. Marioff, a pioneering developer of water mist fire protection technology, is a part of Carrier Global Corporation, the pioneering global provider of healthy, safe and sustainable building and cold chain solutions. “The whole team is proud to achieve such a significant win,” said Timo Suuronen, Manager, Marioff Finland. “As the pioneer in water mist fire protection, Marioff possesses the expertise combined with solid after-market services that gained the customer’s trust.” This Satakunta Hospital District project is the latest example showcasing Marioff’s HI-FOG system as a proven fire protection solution, efficiently and effectively protecting important healthcare facilities around the world.
Marioff will deliver and commission a HI-FOG® high pressure water mist suppression system for the new Päijät-Häme Central Hospital. The delivery to the Päijät-Häme Central hospital is scheduled in the first half of 2020. The HI-FOG system will protect the entire building, which spans 33,600 square meters, and is supplied with a HI-FOG Electric Pump Unit (EPU) and 2,300 sprinklers. The new building is under construction, and parts of the current hospital structure built in 1976 will be replaced. Security And Building Automation Technologies Marioff, a developer of water mist fire protection technology, is a part of Carrier, a global provider of innovative HVAC, refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies. “The HI-FOG system protects the entire building from fire. We are ensuring that if all current fire safety related links fail, the sprinkler will suppress the fire. Because of its benefits, we chose the high-pressure water mist system for both during the construction phase and later during the maintenance phase,” said Timo Nurmi, HVAC expert, Päijät-Häme Central Hospital. “The piping is moderately sized and stainless. The water source is moderately sized, and in case of fire extinguishing and emergency triggering, the extinguishing water is cleaner, and the amount used is a fraction of the traditional fire extinguishing system.” Comprehensive Life Cycle Services The Päijät-Häme Central Hospital in Lahti is the second largest central hospital in Finland and the seventh largest provider of specialized medical care. “The HI-FOG system protects the entire building, including public areas, patient rooms and operating theatres,” said Timo Suuronen, business manager, Marioff Finland. “Other sensitive areas, like X-ray, ICU and clinical labs, will also receive HI-FOG high pressure water mist fire protection. Marioff will deliver the system as a turnkey project. In addition to our technology, the customer has access to the comprehensive life cycle services we offer.” Construction of the new Päijät-Häme Central Hospital is scheduled for completion in 2022.
