Should Fire Water Pumps be sized to provide water to the single largest credible fire scenario (both for cooling, e.g. deluge and for fire-fighting, foam generation) including escape routes.
The followings are being considered:
- The deluge systems should be able to provide protection to the FPSO topside process areas and all escape routes and stairways.
- Release of deluge in any fire zone should automatically initiate the release of deluge on the associated platform escape routes.
