Fire Fighting System for Flammable Gas Holder

Fire Fighting System for Flammable Gas Holder

Fire Fighting System for Flammable Gas Holder


Hi. I am working for construction company and my current project is a low pressure flammable gas holder in steel plant.

My cusmomer in middle east wants me to comply with NFPA code for the Gas Holder.
So, I have checked "NFPA 55" but I am not sure which is right code for me.
My gas holder pressure is very low and storage capacity is very large.

Anyhow, attached file describes the gas holder information and my plan for fire protection.

Could you give me any information if my plan is suitable for NFPA code?
I am new for fire fighting code. Please give me some advice and comments.
