Storage tank firefighting has undoubtedly always been a challenge. Although approved by many authorities and certified by many international institutions, the storage tank firefighting technologies used so far can hardly extinguish large storage tank fires. The reason is simple. First, they generally cannot provide the necessary foam intensity due to physical performance limitations. Therefore, in the event of a very intense fire, the foam will likely be destroyed faster than the supply arrives. As a result, they cannot form a closed foam blanket to cut off the fire from oxygen. To overcome these limitations, there is – so far – no generally applicable, tangible solution. In summary, while everyone recognizes the importance of disaster prevention, technological developments still need to meet the needs.
The different operating principles of the FoamFatale storage tank firefighting system allow it to provide ALL the foam intensities required, making it technologically highly competitive with the currently widely used firefighting alternatives.
To demonstrate the power of FoamFatale storage tank firefighting, we ignited a 500 sqm storage tank. In addition, we let the fire burn for 30 seconds to be more convincing. After this pre-burning period, we released the foam that put the fire in 40 seconds.
We are staging the world’s biggest firefighting show, the most monumental show the fire-fighting industry has ever seen, to convince everyone how true what we say is. See the demonstration in person, live on-site, and even be our VIP guest!

The brand name of the technology is a play on words, derived from the word “Femme Fatale”. The term originates from the French phrase femme fatale, which means ‘deadly woman’ or ‘lethal woman’. An irresistible Femme Fatale, such as Mata Hari, is a mysterious and seductive woman whose charms attract men and often lead them into compromising and, therefore, dangerous and deadly situations. Above all, the name FoamFatale® refers to the main feature of the technology. The irresistible extinguishing foam puts out fires with ferocity. No mercy for fire.
A storage tank fire can have catastrophic consequences, causing loss of life, destruction of property, and environmental damage. As a result, they can also lead to disruptions in supply chains and severe economic impacts. The causes of storage tank fires can vary from human error to equipment failure and natural disasters. Preventive measures such as proper maintenance, training, and monitoring systems can help reduce the risks. In the event of a storage tank fire, rapid response and appropriate equipment should be used, and effective communication with authorities and nearby communities is critical to managing the situation.
The fires reported in the news would probably not have made the news had FoamFatale been in charge of their fire protection.
