What is it about?

Li-ion battery storage facilities contain high energy batteries combined with highly flammable electrolytes. Li-ion batteries are also prone to quick ignition. Fire in such storage facilities can have a significant financial impact on the organization. There is a need to detect both electrolyte fire and electrolyte gas early. Rapid extinguishing is also essential and can be ensured by the use of automated extinguishing systems. Hence, critical situations can be prevented through early detection and rapid extinguishing. 

In this webinar we will present:

  • Why energy storage systems are getting more important
  • How new business opportunities are created with energy storage systems 
  • Why active fire protection systems are important for Li-ion battery energy storage systems (LIBESS)
  • Siemens unrivalled VdS approved fire protection concept for LIBESS 

We are looking forward exchanging with you in this webinar! Join us and register now.
