When it is a requirement from the client of the electrical generating plant to use an automatic water spray system for the fire protection on outdoor power transformers, do you need to comply with spatial separation or firewalls indicated in the standard NFPA 850 art. 5.1.4.3 or is that reduced the required spatial separation? As indicated at the article 5.1.1.1, we understand that the automatic water spray system is an other approved means for fire protection, is that correct?
