Work with expanded safety criteria for hydroelectric plants in the 2010 NFPA 851.

NFPA 851: Recommended Practice for Fire Protection for Hydroelectric Generating Plants provides fire prevention and fire protection with recommendations to safeguard physical property and ensure continuity of power production.

This document offers guidance to those involved with the design, construction, and operation of hydroelectric generating plants. In addition, general plant design, fire protection systems, and identification and protection of hazards are also covered.

The revised 2010 edition includes new chapter on a fire protection design process. NFPA 851 also recognizes the use of compressed air foam systems and fast depressurization systems and provide recommendations on the use of these systems. (Softbound, 27 pp., 2010)
