Established in 2003, Nobel Fire Systems is a leading independent company in ‘special risk’ fire suppression, offering an end-to-end service from initial risk analysis through to site survey, design, installation and ongoing maintenance.
Nobel offers a full suite of fire protection products, including condensed aerosol, gas, watermist, foam, powder, oxygen reduction, and spark detection, incorporating various detection technologies.
Nobel is the exclusive UK & Ireland distributor of the Stat-X® condensed aerosol fire suppression system found in many Battery Energy Storage Systems [BESS] worldwide.
Nobel is a UK distributor of the Li-on Tamer® lithium-ion battery rack (off-gas) monitoring system.
Nobel advocates a 3-stage fire protection solution for lithium-ion BESS:
Stage 1: Prevention → Li-on Tamer® off-gas detection and early warning alert
Stage 2: Containment → Stat-X® condensed aerosol fire suppression
Stage 3: Cooling → backup Watermist deluge
Fireaway Inc., located in the United States, designs, and manufactures Stat-X® condensed aerosol fire suppression. Stat-X solutions are protecting critical assets globally in commercial and industrial applications. A full application summary can be found at https://www.statx.com/industries/.
Stat-X is proven to be effective on lithium-ion battery fires commonly associated with battery energy storage system applications. This includes cube, containerized, and in-cabinet geometries.
Our Stat-X solutions have undergone extensive third-party testing programs during which, Stat-X agent was successfully deployed against both thermal runaway events and fires caused by thermal runaway.
In 2017, Fireaway contracted DNV GL (now known as DNV), an international leader in testing, to conduct trials of Stat-X on lithium-ion battery fires.
In 2021, Fireaway contracted PVEL, a leader in renewable energy product and regulatory testing, in conjunction with multiple subject matter experts in the BESS testing field, to perform full-scale testing in compliance with UL 9540A level 3.
In both testing programs, results showed, when designed and installed properly, Stat-X can mitigate thermal runaway propagation and extinguish subsequent fires.
