IFAB final­ized the first stage of fire safe­ty design for the Vir­gin Hyper­loop One

IFAB was con­tract­ed for all fire safe­ty designs for the first stage of the project. This includ­ed the POD design, tubes and relat­ed emer­gency infra­struc­ture. The project was very com­pre­hen­sive includ­ing the spec­i­fi­ca­tion of suit­able design stan­dards, fire risk analy­sis, fire safe­ty con­cepts and ventilation/evacuation stud­ies.

IFAB senior man­ag­er to NFPA130 com­mit­tee

Max Lakko­nen, senior man­ag­er of IFAB, was select­ed to the tech­ni­cal com­mit­tee of NFPA130 (Rail & Metro).
