The smoke spread at the scene, high temperature and pressure were gaining momentum, harmful flammable gases permeated, prevented rescuers from approaching the scene. At 8am on February 17, the Bijie City fire brigade urgently sent CITIC Heavy Industries Kaicheng intelligent firefighting robots to the scene to participate in the rescue.
Firefighters remotely control the robot to work at the scene of the accident, being 150 meters away from the gas station.
The robot sprayed a large flow of water to efficiently dilute the leaked gas and cool the tank. Until 10pm at night, after 12 hours of continuous battle, the firefighting robot finally successfully completed the dilution of the remaining natural gas in the tank. The emergency dispatch of the firefighting robot replaced the firefighters while eliminating the natural gas leak, effectively prevented the spread of harmful gases and secondary explosions, maximizing the safety of rescuer’s lives, and opening a safe passage for subsequent repair of the gas station. The rescuers praised the good maneuverability and long-term combat capabilities of CITIC HIC Kaicheng intelligence firefighting robots.
