When Petroleum Marine Services sought to upgrade the fire suppression systems on board PMS Mayo, it turned to Alexandria, Egypt-based Maritime Group Co. The company installed state-of-the-art Sea-Fire engineered systems aboard the 298' diving support vessel.

Engineers from UK-based Sea-Fire Europe Ltd and Maritime Group worked collaboratively to design the numerous fire suppression systems on board. The project included 25 suppression fluid cylinders that protect 14 machinery spaces, controlled by a Sea-Fire Extinguisher Release Panel.

"We're very thankful for Sea-Fire's cooperation; the installation on PMS Mayo went perfectly," said Capt. Mohamed Abu El Enin, Maritime Group Co. general manager. "We're looking forward to working on future projects with Sea-Fire Europe."
