We are two Sydney local maritime firefighters driven to solve the problems we encounter. After 25 + collective years of training, preparing for the worst and refining our skills, we desired safer technologies, procedures, and methods to penetrate bulkheads and fight against closed compartment fires. The current techniques are intimidating, with the prospect to introduce a backdraft or flashover. We worked tirelessly putting our heads together to design and develop novel firefighting and penetration equipment to combat the complex dangers of closed compartment fires.
We are proud to share that we have a genuine innovation and have quickly received a clear International Preliminary Report on Patentability (IPRP) on our Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) application. We have patents pending on our other supporting equipment and designs. We are passionate mariners and are proudly developing our future firefighting accessories and methods with aspirations to introduce our cutting-edge technology and procedures to the breadth of the fire safety industry. Please see one of our tools ls in action via the link below:
We hope to contribute to our industry by providing rapid penetration technology and look forward to helping to save all our peers at sea. Our firefighting technology is portable and includes a method for rapid penetration, insertion, and gastight operation through any bulkhead. To conduct indirect firefighting procedures from the non-fireside without exothermic cutting. We aim to be a sovereign capability for the maritime, oil and gas and firefighting industries, and we look forward to doing business with you soon.
We are busy preparing our firefighting technology and methods to perform as redundancy or emergency suppressant option in compartments not already fitted with fire suppressant systems, i.e. shipping containers and land-based chemical or electrical storage units, amongst many other applications.
We also aim to provide a sufficient temporary system to account for the loss of installed firefighting systems when shut down and tagged out in the maintenance environment, which is the same phase when the fire risk is the greatest. We see it imperative to build a human-centred design that is intuitive and uncomplicated to combat human error in emergencies while also contributing to the ease of training and preparedness in the industrial environment. We are at the nucleus of something exciting. We are preparing a research paper to provide the world with a comprehensive understanding of the device and share the data to certify the technology.
Maritime vessels are complex platforms, ever-advancing in machinery and technology, but it is the basics that our mariners and firefighting teams cannot afford to become complacent with. Maritime fires have and will happen again; at Manderson Engineering Innovations, we believe our responsibility is to develop the future technology that will champion fire safety preparedness across our industries. We hope to build up damage control modernisation by providing our peers with new technology and an enhanced fire safety posture to the face of the fight, whether at sea, alongside or on land.
2022 will be an exciting year, with our first international opportunities already in the diary. Please watch this space or drop us a line! As we look forward to the potential to becoming a sovereign resource in IP, discussing openings to enter scaled manufacturing, we are stoked by the opportunity to provide our industries with the safest method of indirect firefighting.
