Protecting shipyards and ships themselves from fires and other safety issues

The ship building and large-scale ship industries represent huge challenges in terms of safety. With concerns such as hot works, dangerous cargos, maintenance, restricted space and more, they can be dangerous places for people to work. Ramtech have been helping with advanced wireless evacuation and emergency alert solutions for ships and shipyards.

WES Fire and Emergency Wireless Alarms

Ramtech’s WES solution is a wireless fire, evacuation and emergency alarm system that is specifically engineered to deliver the highest standards of compliance while meeting the complex safety challenges presented at shipyards on on board ships in the open sea. It’s an ideal safety system for ships and shipyards alike.

Fire and the production of smoke are serious risks when ships are being built, maintained or repaired in shipyards. There are many sources of heat, flames, and sparks such as brazing, cutting, grinding, soldering, thawing, and welding. Coupled with multiple sources of fuel like debris and flammable liquids in large quantities, this makes shipyards rife with opportunities for a full-scale blaze.

WES wireless evacuation and emergency alarm systems can be installed during a ship’s construction phase until a built-in system is permanently in place on the ship. They include our unique dust resistant smoke detection, heat detection and manual fire / medical call points to help keep all staff and equipment as safe as possible from emergencies.

REACT App Site Alert and Monitoring

In 2020 Ramtech, launched it’s 24/7 site protection platform – REACT – powered by the cloud. It combines a simple-to-use mobile device app and browser management tool to create a real time emergency response system that can protect a site around the clock. It can link into the WES system to provide teams off-site, such as managers, real time alerts to any issues that the WES system picks up – from medical emergencies to smoke detection.

The REACT system has been developed specifically to provide enhanced safety on a shipyard or ship. It’s another way Ramtech technology can provide a solution to safeguard a project’s personnel, assets and property.
