Lithium-ion Fire Extinguishing Solutions

The world is constantly striving to explore more environmentally friendly power and propulsion sources of energy.

Whilst Lithium-ion batteries have been in existence for some time, it is only more recently that they are being used in a much wider range of products including superyachts, e-vtol rotorcraft, yacht tenders, personal watercraft, submarines and many more.

The associated fire risk of lithium-ion batteries has, up until now, been little thought about, but now we are seeing regular incidents of fire involving this energy source which we need to be prepared for. The risk and behaviour of fires involving Lithium-ion batteries requires a different approach with more sophisticated fire extinguishing media.

Maritime Aviation are specialists in lithium-ion fire extinguishing solutions and are able to supply a full range of fire extinguishing and containment kits solely for dealing with Lithium-ion battery fires and energy storage systems, specifically, AVD (Aqueous Vermiculite Dispersion).
