Fire safety is a critical part of heavy industry’s day-to-day operations. Especially after the devastating 2016 Fort McMurray wildfires, fire prevention and suppression have become essential considerations for all industrial sectors in Alberta. Companies need to invest in safe, reliable fire suppression systems, particularly when operating in remote locations lacking accessibility for emergency services.

Vortex Energy Services offers portable fire suppression units designed to control small-to-medium fires on rig sites, oilfield leases, construction sites, and other industrial applications. No matter how demanding the job or remote the location, keep safety at the forefront with Vortex fire suppression units.
