Ports and docks face many fire risks, from the constant use of onsite vehicles to the storage of flammable materials. For port operators, the key is identifying these risks and embracing new technology in order to mitigate them effectively, Fire Shield Systems Ltd has said.

James Mountain, sales & marketing director at Fire Shield Systems, told CM: “There is a disparity across different ports in the application of fire safety measures. Some put fire safety at the forefront of their operations – taking DP World London Gateway as an example.
