In electric power generating plants, a sudden fire breakout can have costly and even fatal consequences. Owners and operators of many plants tend to pay little or no attention towards fire suppression system since their installation which was done around 10 to 20 years back. In about one of every three cases of fire suppression system failure in a fire station, the cause is inadequate inspection, implementation of poor fire systems and maintenance.
A study has reported that around 49 percent of gaseous suppression systems in combustion turbine units failed to operate satisfactorily in a 20-year period, with total property damage of around 15.9 million USD. Fire hazards like large quantities of fuel, combustible/flammable liquids, electrical hazards, combustible dust, and warehousing are common in electric power generating plants. In these facilities, a wide range of fire protection systems can be found. The list includes fire pumps, hydrants, fire extinguishers and systems using sprinkler/water spray, dry chemical, halon, carbon dioxide, and detection/alarm devices.
Fire protection systems are a combination of mechanical and electrical components and, like power generation equipment, needs regular attention. Fire protection equipment is often neglected and the lowest grade and cheap equipments are selected which in terms prove to be highly regretful at the time of mishaps. Fire protection related tasks often are assigned to inadequately trained personnel or are not done at all. As the program complies with the requirements of a local jurisdiction or fire department does not guarantee the frequencies to be adequate.
