In their extinguishing properties “SOFIR” nor is inferior, and even in many ways superior to their foreign counterparts, as well as a product of domestic production, the cost of its much lower.
Today, modern ships are equipped with the latest systems and equipment for fighting fires, but nonetheless the disaster happen often. One should carefully look after the effective fire protection of the vessel, or the material and most importantly, casualties are inevitable.
