Hello, my name is Martin. I'm currently working on fire fighting system designed to protect transformers on an offshore substation. I noticed that NFPA 15 is the only standard which decribes how a transformer should be protected and that an application rate of 10,2lpm/min/m2 on all exposed exterior surfaces shall be applied. I'm hoping that viewers of this thread could advice if NFPA 15 & 16 can be combined, meaning that we use the spray pattern (object protection) recommended by NFPA 15 in combination with a source of Foam-water solution as decribed in NFPA 16. The application rate would then be reduced to only 6,5 lpm/min/m2?

Best regards,
