Protecting electrical cables on LNG vessels and refineries worldwide.
As a founder of Fire Security Middle East in 2003, he has more than 15 years experience in the field and has seen more than twenty LNG carriers being upgraded since 2015 ranging from MOSS type, Q-Flex, Q-Max and conventional LNG carriers.
The global LNG market is growing rapidly.
The fleet of LNG carriers continues to experience tremendous growth. The world’s first LNG carrier Methane Pioneer was launched in January 1959 delivering its cargo from the US to the UK. Since then these types of carriers have developed into the most sophisticated commercial vessels operating on the world’s oceans.
In recent years, the size and capacity of LNG new builds has increased rapidly with the introduction of Q-Flex, Q-Max and ARC-7 designs. These vessels carry very costly and very sensitive cargo and can experience loss of operations due to damaged cables on cargo pumps whilst others have experienced small fires in their machinery spaces which lead to high levels of loss of production.
Here Fire Security’s DNV-GL approved coating systems have been utilized for repairs and environmental protection both on deck and for fire technical upgrades of cables in high risk areas below deck. Fire Security’s main objective is to enhance the safety on board and protect against both loss of life and loss of production in the event of a fire.
Fire Security Middle East also operates onshore in LNG refineries.
FS holds a three-year repair and coating contract with Shell GTL where thousands of meters of early ageing damaged HV cables have been repaired and coated.
In 2004 Fire Security upgraded all cables above ground fire technically for Technip at the Oryx GTL refinery in Ras Laffan, Qatar.
Fire Security Middle East delivers turnkey projects globally, with riding crews on passage or during your dry-docking cycle and we remain available to conduct surveys of your cables any where in the world.

We protect cables from environmental damage.
We can repair cables that have been damaged by UV, oil, mud and mechanical stress. The coating will restore the cable value, prevent future damage to cables and cable jackets and eliminate the need for large-scale costly replacement. Our coating also gives you the best passive fire protection of your electrical cables.
SAVING COST, SAVING ASSETS, SAVING LIVES
In a fire situation our passive fire protection coating system will prevent:
- Ignition of the cable insulation
- Release of toxic fumes from the cable insulation
- Release of poisonous gas (HCL) from the cable insulation
- The cable tray from melting and collapsing
