Safety is a top priority in shipyard construction. Fires in particular can have devastating effects. In our latest blog post, you will learn why mobile fire alarm systems such as MOBS are indispensable in shipyard construction. Read on to learn more about the benefits and features of MOBS and how it can help make your construction site safer.

Building ships and yachts is a complex and demanding task that requires a high degree of precision and care. However, it is not only the technical aspects that need to be considered – the safety of the employees and the construction site itself also plays an important role. Especially with regard to fires, the effects can be devastating, both for people’s health and for the material and the environment. For this reason, mobile fire alarm systems are indispensable in shipyard construction.
A mobile fire detection system such as MOBS is a flexible, portable, easy to install and operate solution for temporary use on construction sites and shipyards. MOBS features state-of-the-art sensor technology to detect smoke, heat, gases and water quickly and reliably. With the multi-criteria sensor O2T, false alarms can be reduced to a minimum. In the event of a fire alarm, MOBS immediately sends an alarm to predefined contacts, such as security personnel or the plant fire brigade. This allows the necessary measures to be taken quickly to extinguish or contain the fire before it causes major damage. The MyMOBS platform supports the emergency services in locating the fire quickly.
Mobile fire detection systems are particularly advantageous in shipyard construction because they are flexible and easy to install. When designing and building ships and yachts, conditions on the construction site can change constantly, often making a permanent fire alarm system impractical or impossible. MOBS, on the other hand, is mobile and can be easily deployed in different locations to ensure effective monitoring.
In addition, mobile fire alarm systems like MOBS meet the requirements of the fire brigade and insurance companies. A quick response to a fire alarm can not only save lives, but also minimise damage to materials and the environment, which can improve insurance coverage.
In summary, the use of mobile fire alarm systems in shipyard construction is an important part of safety precautions. MOBS provides a reliable and flexible solution to detect potential fires and respond quickly, improving the safety of workers and material while increasing insurance coverage.
