Case Study

Doosan Power Systems

Doosan Power Systems had an existing inert gas extinguishing system, which had been installed because of the clean, safe fire protection it offers.

However, Doosan needed a solution to minimise the risk of hard disk damage in the event of a gas discharge. It had already suffered this problem with a previous service provider.

Doosan builds, maintains and extends the life of power plants across the world. Its work ranges from construction contracts for major power projects to pioneering carbon capture systems.

Doosan is aware of the vital role its IT operation plays in the running of its business, and is also conscious of its environmental responsibilities.

Suppression

The Challenge

Developments in IT mean that new, higher-capacity hard disk drives can be at risk as a result of the sound energy associated with the release of a gas extinguishing system. There have been a number of such incidents across the world.

Doosan has first-hand experience of this issue because a previous fire system provider had accidentally discharged the gas extinguishant system. The noise from this extinguishant release had caused data loss and damage to Doosan’s computer system.

The company was therefore determined to make sure it was fully protected against the possibility of similar incidents in the future.

Doosan appointed Senseco Systems as its new service provider, and we worked with the company, together with engineering and technology firm Siemens, to resolve the issue.

The Solution

After examining the existing gas extinguishing system that had caused the problem, we concluded that the best ‒ and most cost effective ‒ course of action was to fit Sinorix Silent Nozzles.

The advantage of this type of technology is that it reduces the physical sound energy in a similar way to the silencer on a car exhaust. Plus, it moves the sound frequency away from the crucial spectrum that is known to cause hard disk drive damage.

The Result

The installation of the silent nozzles was a straight-forward project, and now the technology acts as a safeguard for Doosan’s critical IT processes.

Plus, the solution proved to be good value for money because it didn’t require a full replacement of the existing extinguishing system.

The solution couldn’t have been easier. The nozzle replacement was a quick and simple operation with no interruption to the company’s daily work, so the business was able to carry on as normal.
