Fire Security presents cable repair and fire protection projects around the world, October-December 2018.

Welcome to Fire Security’s quarterly newsletter. The last quarter of 2018 was positively affected by good projects underway on Cruise ships and completed projects in Brazil, USA, China and Middle East. We also have several projects under planning in Australia. Very importantly, we had no lost time incident recorded in 2018, this is thanks to our dedicated people with long term focus on safety.

Fire Security conducts cable surveys, fire protection and cable repair worldwide in many industries, whether on oil-rigs, LNG tankers, petrochemical refineries, cement factories, power plants and more. For updated information and news, we invite you to follow us on Facebook and connect with us on Linkedin.

With kind regards from Mr. Leif Harald Tveitnes, President of Fire Security.
