ERC and Manual Monitor System

KW Simmering Petroleum Tank Farm Operation

Fixed monitor extinguishing system for protecting storage tanks with around 200,000 m3 of mineral oil products and biogenic raw materials and fuels.

Erdöl-Lagergesellschaft m.b.H. (ELG) is the central storage agency of the Republic of Austria and, in addition to fulfilling storage goals, makes an important contribution in securing the energy supply in the event of a shortage. Located in the city of Vienna, ACCURO Fire Protection Systems designed and installed fixed monitor extinguishing system to protect the storage tanks which are located in different service stations. In employing this new system, mineral oil products, biogenic raw materials, and fuels stocked in the nine storage tanks with a total inventory of around 200,000 m³ can be well protected and stored in a long-term basis.
