KAICHENG’s Firefighting robots participate in firefighting rescue at a chemical plant in Quzhou, Zhejiang
At around 11:25 on November 9, a fire broke out at a chemical plant in Quzhou City, Zhejiang Province. The fire area is located in the southwest corner of the chemical plant. The main burning substances are high-boiling methyl chlorosilane and hydrogen-containing silicone oil. The combustion products are toxic. In addition, there is a flowing fire on site, which requires containment and control. This brings huge difficulties to the rescue. After receiving the fire rescue request, Quzhou Fire and Rescue Detachment rushed to the rescue immediately. Zhejiang Fire and Rescue Corps performed this rescue mission and transferred 4 chemical formations from Hangzhou, Ningbo, Wenzhou, and Jinhua detachments for reinforcements. KAICHENG's firefighting robots participated in the mission at the same time.
