According to the fire service spokesman Andreas Kettis, the fire has been placed under control, but it will take some hours to extinguish completely as the four fire trucks that are at the scene are using high-expansion foam.
In scale tests conducted by Shell Research Ltd, a depth of 200 mm (8 inches) of FOAMGLASA PFSao cubes, assisted in providing an immediate and automatic control of the fire at a level comparable with that provided of 1-2 metres (3.3-6.6 ft) of high-expansion foam. Results of large scale experiments performed at the Emergency Services Training Institute of Texas A&M University have shown that the view factor of an LNG pool fire suppressed by a FOAMGLASA PFSao system is comparatively lower than that of high expansion foam, providing real protection from thermal radiation for exposed equipment or personnel.

In addition, a new high-expansion foam material is used inside the vehicle to improve interior thermal management and reduce the weight of interior components.
