In 2018, Efectis purchased new testing equipment that enables full-scale hydrocarbon pool fire tests to be performed with all the required safety and confidentiality conditions. The equipment is located at the fire testing and training platform in Saint-Yan, France.

Efectis is now able to perform tests in accordance with standards such as the STANAG 4240 – Liquid Fuel / External Fire, Munition – Test Procedures, which have been developed by NATO with the aim of proposing standard testing procedures to assess the possible reaction of ammunitions and weapon systems to typical heat flows from an enveloping flame produced by a fire in a huge hydrocarbon pool. This type of test can, for example, consist of subjecting weapon protection/packaging to a kerosene pool fire.
