The world’s first extinguishing water facility in port

The extinguishing water facility in the Oil Port in Malmö is now completed.

“It is a purely environmental investment”, says Jens Haugsöen, oil terminal manager at CMP in Malmö.

The work started in October last year. The businesses in the Oil Port - Nordic Storage, Statoil, Vopak, OK/Q8, STS, Preem, Norcarb Engineered Carbons AB, Univar and Wibax – have paid 67%, and CMP is bearing the rest of the total of almost SEK 5 million which the project has cost to complete. Furthermore, the bulk of the operations have requirements from the Environment and Health Administration, and these have now been met.

“From today, no contaminated extinguishing water or surface water will end up in the sea if a fire was to occur, which thankfully has never happened”, says Jens Haugsöen.

The extinguishing water system is an addition to CMP’s ordinary surface water system. In the event of a fire, the surface water is redirected to the extinguishing water system.

Stefan Kristenssons Åkeri AB carried out the excavation work. Other contractors involved were Depåservice AB and Malmströms El AB.
