The Client

Commissioned in 1981 by the Italian shipyard, Codecasa, the Esmerlada Yacht is the epitome of luxury on the Mediterranean seas. The 62-meter yacht, is valued at $20 million with an annual estimated maintenance of $3 million and offers state-of-the-art accommodations and amenities. Equipped with twin 1,500 hp MAK engines, this super-yacht which accommodates 12 guests and 26-crew members, is able to navigate at a cruising speed of 15 knots.

Risks & Consequences

Operating in crowded ports and marinas , the Esmeralda Yacht faces inherent fire risks, primarily arising from engine-electrical faults and fuel leaks. Given the potential catastrophic consequences for the yacht, passengers, crew, and surrounding environments, fire protection systems are imperative.

The Task

To replace the previous Halon extinguishing system, a compact, durable and low-maintenance solution was needed for both the engine and generator rooms. Compliance with IMO directive MSC-1/Circ.1270 was non-negotiable, given the yacht’s commitment to maritime safety standards.

Why FirePro?

FirePro emerged as the ideal solution, offering a space-saving environmentally-friendly, condensed aerosol fire suppression system that met all regulatory requirements. With worldwide recognition and approvals from organizations like the IMO and RINA, FirePro’s solution aligned perfectly with the yacht’s engineering specifications and installation time-frame.

Results of Implementation

FirePro systems were installed in the engine and generator rooms safeguarding critical components and electrical equipment. The low-maintenance design and long lifespan of FirePro’s solution provides ongoing assurance with minimal operational disruption. Moreover, the environmentally friendly aerosol agents mitigate the risk of pollution, aligning with the yacht’s sustainability goals.
