A fire pump is used for moving water through a fire sprinkler system or to manual hose bibbs in an industrial plant or commercial building. The pump intake of water is usually connected to the external water supply, whereas in other cases, it may be connected to the local source of water such as a tank, well, or body of water. The fire pump is designed to deliver water to efficiently douse fire and is required for periodic checks. They are certified by the local fire inspection agency. Hydraulic driven pumps are commonly used in spraying and liquid transfer operations. These pumps are driven by a hydraulic motor which is placed directly to the pump. Hydraulic fire water pumps utilize a submerged, hydraulically driven pump which lifts the water to deck level feeding into a pump directly driven by diesel engine. Usually there is a 70/30 load split between the direct driven pump and submerged pump. The main engine, i.e., submerged engine start load is 30% of the full load which results in faster operational of the whole firefighting system and with less start load on the engine. These pumps are fed with hydraulic oil via a high pressure supply hose (usually 2,000 to 3,000 PSI) to the hydraulic motor of these pumps.
The ability to provide high-pressure for spraying and to work in cold or hot temperature is expected to drive the growth of the hydraulic fire water pump market. Furthermore, no requirements of diesel or petrol engines which needs repeated maintenance or fueling is one of the major factors driving the adoption of hydraulic fire water pumps. The hydraulic fire water pump is expected to improve the firefighting reliability solutions to meet the industry standards. This in turn is expected to influence the hydraulic fire water pump market growth over the forecast period. FPSO and conventional offshore production platforms need fire protection which is usually achieved by a high-pressure firewater ring mainly supplied by the firewater pump. The requirement of high pressure fire water pumps is projected to fuel the demand for hydraulic fire water pumps over the forecast period. Few other drivers influencing the hydraulic fire water pump market growth positively include low start load, continuous condition monitoring of the submerged lift pump, and compact and low – weight system.
The global hydraulic fire water pump market can be segmented based on type, application, end-use, and region. Based on type, the hydraulic fire water pump market can be segregated into twin stage hydraulic driven pump, and single stage hydraulic driven pump. Based on application, the hydraulic fire water pump market can be categorized into engineering fire pump, truck mounted fire pump, marine board fire pump, and hand-lift fire pump. The submerged fire water lift pump is a single stage centrifugal pump with short stiff shaft overhug design and is powered by a diesel engine driven hydraulic power unit. Based on end-use, the hydraulic fire water pump market is segmented into oil & gas, refinery/FPSO/ LNG terminals/ oil production terminals, and marine & shipbuilding. Refinery/oil production terminals end-use segment is expected to contribute majorly to the market share of hydraulic fire water pumps due to their extensive implementation in the oil production process.
Based on region, the global hydraulic fire water pump market can be segregated into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. Prominent players operating in the global hydraulic fire water pump market are Framo, Sulzer, Hercules Hydraulics, Pentair, Hycos Firefighting, Kosaka Laboratory, KM Hydraulic Solutions, US Fire Pump, SPP, DP Industries (DP-Pump), Rosenbauer, Morrison Pump, Kirloskar Brothers, HAKA SAS, Unistream Engineering, Flowserve, and Darley.
