Modular containment bunds fitted with a fire extinguishing system

Reference: BAFX®

Description:

Modular containment bunds fitted with a fire extinguishing system for high-voltage transformers. For transformers (between 10 and 100 MVA), neutral position 300 and 1000 A solenoid valve coils, etc. Alternative solution to concrete pits when the ground is unsuitable or an urgent solution is required: areas where digging is difficult, rising ground water, tight completion deadline, etc.

These BAFX bunds allow for rapid disposal of the dielectric substances in the bund and the natural extinguishing of the flames.

Design

Modular system comprising 2, 3 or 4 fire suppression containment bunds of the BAF type connected to each other to allow for distribution of the fluids across the full available capacity of the system. Stationary legs welded to the bottom of the bund.

Hot-dip galvanised or stainless steel sheet to ensure an optimal lifespan. Copper or stainless steel terminal grounding system. Total dielectric liquid retention capacity.

Sealing checked and approved by the independent control body, APAVE. Bunds checked using liquid penetrant inspection procedure ARDROX 996 P2. MX®-type fire extinguishing system  comprising a set of factory-assembled galvanised sheet metal baffle plates.

Options

Installation

The BAFX® system is delivered in separate, ready-to-assemble bunds. The BAF fire-protection containment bunds that are part of the BAFX can be connected to each other quickly. The transformer can be installed immediately and must be laid on a concrete foundation that it is capable of withstanding the weight of the transformers.

Use

Alternative solution to concrete pits when the ground is unsuitable or an urgent solution is required: areas where digging is difficult, rising ground water, tight completion deadline, etc. 

Compliance of indoor and outdoor transformer stations with the applicable regulations by adding a safety siphon and the FILTRELEC ECODESIGN®system, which ensures compliance with the Water Act.

The bund has a built-in MX® type fire extinguishing system, which allows for rapid disposal of the dielectric substances into the bund and the natural extinguishing of the flames
