Your risk is ours too

We offer exclusive consulting and engineering services to storage-tank operators to improve their ability to subdue large-scale fire incidents cost effectively.

The shock of seeing an uncontrollable blaze ravaging your facility’s primary tanks, devouring the assets as well as your company’s reputation, is a trauma you should never have to experience.

 We are here to make sure you never do.

SFPRD is redrawing the lines of what is possible in hydrocarbon-storage security.

When disaster strikes and overwhelms your current fire-suppression capabilities: Do you have any option other than allowing your tanks to burn down completely?

We have the answer.

Causes of tank fires

Our Mission

Our mission is to introduce a new level of awareness about large industrial fire disasters by introducing new, cost- and performance-effective methods of controlling, managing and suppressing fires.

Swiss Fire Protection Research and Development AG was established by determined industrial fire safety experts with a singular focus on establishing a higher safety status in the energy industry, especially when it comes to highly exposed large-diameter atmospheric storage tanks and dikes.

At SFPRD, a dedicated team of fire protection, chemical, HSE, and mechanical engineers, as well as safety protocol experts, work relentlessly to address seemingly unsolvable fire safety challenges.
