1 4 th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE FOR FIRE CHIEFS IN THE CHEMICAL INDUSTRY Iain Cooke Technical Director The latest technologies being used by fire-fighters to pre-plan, train, and use in real time emergency mitigations TADPOLE TECHNOLOGY

2 Exploiting spatial systems in industrial firefighting TADPOLE TECHNOLOGY

3 What are spatial systems (GIS)? TADPOLE TECHNOLOGY Some base technologies – A lightning tour

4 TADPOLE TECHNOLOGY

5 TADPOLE TECHNOLOGY

6 TADPOLE TECHNOLOGY

7 TADPOLE TECHNOLOGY

8 TADPOLE TECHNOLOGY

9 Are these IT systems more than just a map? TADPOLE TECHNOLOGY

10 Your plant / Facility Satellite/aerial imagery Gas modelling Products (Oil, Chemical, Gas) Site drains / pipelines Hydrants / Equipment TADPOLE TECHNOLOGY Information Visualisation and Decision Support Tools

11 Planning and Preparation Can you see – if you have adequate water? – the risk of escalation / spread? – if hose runs and equipment will be effective? – water management issues? – what scenarios you have planned for? – the environment a plume will cover? Spatial systems make it clearer TADPOLE TECHNOLOGY

12 Incident Response When an incident happens… Can you quickly locate – information on special risks? – pre-planned information and advice? – hydrants, sumps, drains and their connections? Spatial systems make it faster, easier, clearer AND Easy to provide to incoming teams TADPOLE TECHNOLOGY

13 Planning and Response Fire Chief Benefit : Visualise your response when pre-planning 1. See heat contour impact upon plant2. Position response equipment3. Measure hose runs Level within company TADPOLE TECHNOLOGY 4. Place booster pumps

14 Benefit : Tools to speed scenario planning 5. Measure the tank footprint6. Calculate foam requirement Level within company Fire Chief TADPOLE TECHNOLOGY

15 Benefit : Tools to speed scenario planning 7. Calculate bund / dyke capacity Level within company Fire Chief TADPOLE TECHNOLOGY

16 Benefit : Incident location provides access to plans 7. Retrieve pre authored pre-plan document Level within company Fire Chief TADPOLE TECHNOLOGY

17 Fire Chief Benefit : Quick and easy correlation with environment 9. Model gas dispersion to determine impact Level within company TADPOLE TECHNOLOGY

18 Away from the heat… Access data of many sites over the web See incidents and history See status of tanks and product Information for decision making in the wider context TADPOLE TECHNOLOGY

19 Understanding the big picture Regional Crisis Manager Benefit : Calculate the cost of a Tank fire 1. View data for more than one facility2. See live Storage Tank volume data Level within company TADPOLE TECHNOLOGY

20 TADPOLE TECHNOLOGY Cost of Foam per litre ($) No.of Litres required Sub total ($)Cost of effluent disposal ($) No. of LitresSub Total ($) ,000600, ,000312,000 Total Cost $912,000 Value of Product per litre ($) No.of Litres in Storage Tank Sub total ($)Cost of replacing assets Cost of public opinion Sub Total ($) m3 x 1198 = ,067, ,0001,200,0002,760,000 Total Cost $6,827,433 $6,827,433 - $912,000 = $5,915,433 Confirm fight the fire Level within company Regional Crisis Manager Example COST ANALYSIS OF 10HR FIRE

21 TADPOLE TECHNOLOGY Cost of Foam per litre ($) No.of Litres required Sub total ($)Cost of effluent disposal ($) No. of LitresSub Total ($) ,0004,716, ,000,000141,440,000 Total Cost $ MILLION Value of Product per litre ($) No.of Litres in Storage Tank Sub total ($)Cost of replacing assets Cost of public opinion Sub Total ($) m3 x 1198 = 52 MILLION LITRES 60,379,00060,000,000 ESTIMATED 20,000,00080,000,000 Total Cost $140.4 MILLION $146.15M - $140.4M = Level within company Regional Crisis Manager Example COST ANALYSIS OF 84HR FIRE (BUNCEFIELD) -$5,750,000

22 Conclusion A different and powerful way of managing information “Maps” are a very intuitive paradigm Big potential, lots of possibilities But… The system won’t create the information! TADPOLE TECHNOLOGY
