Hytrans Mobile Water Supply & Fire Suppression System

One of the main issues firefighters face during fire eruptions, especially in industrial and urban areas, is the lack of access to a reliable water source and consistent water supply. Every second is critical. There’s no time to spare. Well, the HYTRANS mobile fire suppression system is here to save the day.

If there is no fixed water supply system or the existing system cannot handle the situation, it’s vital to pump water from sources like rivers, lakes, harbours, or the open sea.

However, factors like water flow and pressure, accessibility, time, distance, and labour availability can hinder the process.

How Does It Differ?

The Hytrans mobile fire suppression system is innovative and compact in design, making it easy to deploy and handle. When using it, all you need is an open water source like a river – even if it’s far away!

The mobile water supply system consists of a large diameter hose that you can use to supply water over long distances quickly.

The hydraulic pump, submerged in water, can pump large volumes of water continuously for the fire brigade to do their job. 

Here are the components of our HYTRANS mobile water supply systems;

HYTRANS HS150 submersible pump.Can access water up to 60 metres vertical.

Submersible Pump

Hydraulically driven submersible pump with large capacity.


HYTRANS HydroSub 150 fire suppression system

HydroSub Power Pack

Diesel engine power pack powers the hydraulic submersible pumps.


Hytrans Squeeze Ramps for hoses up to 152mm, low clearance can be used by heavy vehicles, this deployment was for 8 hoses.

Large Diameter Hoses

Large diameter flexible hose, of 150mm / 6″ up to 300mm / 12″. This carries large volumes of water over long distances.

Hose laying & Recovery

Hose laying and recovery allows the use of large diameter hose.


Fire Suppression System Used By;

  • Fire Brigades & Emergency Services
  • Industries such as Petro-Chemicals and Major Hazard Facilities
  • Water Utilities & Governments

The purpose of the HYTRANS is to carry large volumes of liquid over long distances, all while providing a continuous water flow.

During Large Scale Fires, Floods and Earthquakes, the Main Issues Are Always:

  • Water supply (flow and pressure)
  • Access to water. Often an open water source is needed to supply the water volume required
  • Time
  • Distance
  • Labour availability

When a fixed system is absent, damaged or simply does not offer enough capacity, it is necessary to be able to pump from an open water source. This includes rivers, lakes, harbours or the open sea. However, due to draft limitation of conventional suction pumps, access to water can be difficult.

HYTRANS from the Netherlands has developed a system to overcome this problem: the HYTRANS Mobile Water Supply System.

Buncefield Fire 2005 - Hytrans units fire suppression system

In 2005, fire brigades handling the Buncefield fuel depot fire in the UK utilized 14 units of HYTRANS HydroSub HS150. The occasion? Tackling the largest post-WWII fire in Europe! HYTRANS HVPs (high volume pumps) pumped water to the site from an open-source 1.8km away.

The water was distributed across the site for the purposes of firefighting and cooling unscathed tanks. Moreover, the team also used the pumps to shuffle contaminated run-off between bunds and empty tanks to avoid an ecological disaster.
