Marine and Energy Solutions DIV Ltd. is official representative of SEA FIRE company.

Sea-Fire manufactures a wide range of technologically advanced marine fire detection and suppression systems for commercial and recreational vessels. The company has been protecting people and property at sea for over 45 years.

Sea-Fire Engineered Fire Suppression Systems protect compartments from 1,500 cu ft (42.5 cu m) up to 17,500 cu ft (500 cu m) and provide reliable and responsible economical solutions that protect large pleasure craft, yachts, workboats, marine vessels and onshore/offshore marine applications.


Pre-engineered marine fire suppression systems are designed to be a fixed installation, designed and tested to specific criteria. The system protects a given volume of an enclosure via automatic heat activation or manual release.

3M™ Novec™ 1230 fluid is a highly-efficient fire extinguishant with low acute toxicity – helping to put out fires long before the agent reaches concentration that could adversely affect humans. It has the largest margin of safety among all other chemical clean agents, CO2 and inert gas mixtures because its use concentration is much lower than its No Observable Adverse Effects Level (NOAEL).

With very low heat of vaporization and high vapor pressure, this highly-effective clean agent fire suppressant evaporates 50 times faster than water helping to ensure your valuable assets stay safe and dry. Choosing Novec 1230 fluid also gives you peace of mind with 20 years of protection against future regulatory bans or restrictions. 3M is so confident that Novec 1230 fluid will continue to meet environmental and safety standards far into the future that they are offering the industry’s first global warranty against losses arising from regulatory action: the 3M™ Blue SkySM Warranty.

Marine and Energy Solutions DIV Ltd. is vigorously rebuilding the Croatian shipbuilding industry. As the company’s naval architects draft new vessels, they’re working with Sea-Fire’s master European distributor—Sea-Fire Europe—to incorporate state-of-the-art engineered fire detection and suppression systems.”




Zero-emission sailing ship

The project entitled “Development of a zero-emission passenger sailing ship” is co-financed by the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund. The project was submitted to the Call for Proposals for Increasing the Development of New Products and Services Arising from Research and Development Activities – Phase II (KK.

The aim of the project is to research, develop and build an eco-innovation in the form of a passenger cruise ship for a minimum of 36 passengers for which alternative propulsion technologies and energy sources will be explored and developed based on environmentally friendly design aimed at sustainable zero-emission mobility, environmental sustainability and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, air and noise pollution. The expected result of the research is the application of new knowledge and skills that will be confirmed through the realization of a competitive product, which is new for the entrepreneur and his partners, new for the national market, new for the macro-region and new for the global market.

The project “Development of a zero-emission passenger sailing ship” directly contributes to addressing EU priorities and is in line with several EU Common Policies. This project directly contributes to increasing investment in research and development within the S3 Smart Specialization Strategy, the thematic area “Transport and Mobility”, the sub-thematic areas “Environmentally friendly transport solutions” and “Intelligent transport systems and logistics”, and the thematic area “Energy and sustainable environment ”, sub-thematic areas “Energy technologies, systems and equipment” and “Environmentally friendly technologies, equipment and advanced materials ”.

The project applicant is DIV Grupa d.o.o., and the project partners are: Marine and Energy Solutions DIV d.o.o.; Shipbuilding industry Split d.d.; University of Split, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture and Josip Juraj Strossmayer University of Osijek, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Information Technology Osijek.

The total value of the Project is HRK 52,779,547.09. The total eligible costs of the project amount to HRK 42,520,975.46, while the EU share of project financing amounts to HRK 28,913,221.79. The project implementation period is from 17/02/2020 to 17/08/2023.
