We are planning to use two vertical turbine fire pumps (one working, one standby spare) to provide seawater for firefighting at the new wharf at a marine oil terminal. Standard practice would be to provide one electric-driven and one diesel-driven pump. Locating a diesel tank on the offshore platform, however, introduces a concern over potential marine spills and platform fires. Also, this arrangement would require a large footprint needed to accommodate a horizontal diesel engine and a tank. For these reasons, we are contemplating using two electric pumps on the offshore platform drawing power from a dedicated diesel generator located onshore and backed up by facility power. I will appreciate your input on whether anyone has seen/used such arrangement or any comments/opinions about code compliance or reliability. Thanks.
