Electric Vehicle Containment Unit, the first mobile solution for cooling and firefighting.
The Electric Vehicle Containment Unit (EVCU) is the first mobile soloution for cooling and firefighting whilst on the move with its unique onboard water supply and suppression system. Designed and developed by experts in firefighting, engineering and recovery industry.
The EVCU designed for a multitude of agencies.
The Electric Vehicle Containment Unit (patent protected) can be easily carried by a multitude of agencies including recovery operators, fire services, police, highways departments and many more.
It is expected by 2032 their will be 23 million electric and hybrid cars in the UK.
Putting out an electric vehicle fire demands large amounts of water, around 1,125 litres a minute and can take over an hour totalling 67500 litres of water. In some cases crews have been on scene for over 4 hours. Discover how the EVCU could help change this!
Fire Suppression System
The EVCU does not rely on submersion tactics, instead with its unique onboard water supply and suppression system it will suppress fire growth and development.
Onboard Water Supply
With a total of 3 built in water tanks, 2 under floor and one header tank, 1800 litres of water becomes 3 million litres of steam. Therefore suppressing fire growth and development.
Our Electric Vehicle Containment Unit, is specially designed and developed to remove electric cars from the road quickly and safely – even when they’re still burning
Welcome to Fire Containers Ltd – home of the Electric Vehicle Containment Unit (EVCU).
The growth of Electric Vehicles (EV’s) globally cannot be ignored but the subsequent side effect of this rise is the impact on emergency responders and other agencies being able to effectively deal with EV incidents once they occur.

Emergency responders globally are now struggling with the rise in numbers of EV incidents due to the complex effects of Lithium-Ion batteries either on fire or due to the potential for thermal runaway. This is why Fire Containers Ltd has been established – To help emergency responders and other agencies in dealing with EV incidents following fire or vehicle collisions.
The global growth of Electric Vehicles
The global electric vehicle market share has taken astronomical growth in the past 10 years, and it will accelerate exponentially in the next decade also. Even though we’ve already seen some incredible growth in the number of EVs worldwide, electric car industry predictions would suggest that this is just the start of the electric revolution.
Driven by climate change, most leading nations now take seriously, global EV sales keep accelerating in 2022. Looking at the first five months of 2022, more than 3.2 million new plug-in cars were registered worldwide. Jaguar plans to sell only electric cars from 2025, Volvo from 2030 and British sportscar company Lotus said it would follow suit, selling only electric models from 2028.
General Motors says it will make only electric vehicles by 2035, Ford says all vehicles sold in Europe will be electric by 2030 and VW says 70% of its sales will be electric by 2030.
Fire Containers Ltd can assist emergency responders and recovery operators.
We have designed and developed the world’s first patent protected Electric Vehicle Containment Unit (EVCU) with a built-in water supply which recirculates water for continual cooling and fire suppression even during transit – Click here for more details.
The main difference between the EVCU and other solutions is this is not a submersion unit as major vehicle manufacturers state their batteries should NOT be submerged in water as this can initiate or accelerate thermal runaway. In addition, submersion tactics creates huge amounts of contaminated water. The EVCU utilises the principal of water turning to steam (expansion ratio) to suppress fire development around the vehicle or to continually cool battery compartments to help prevent thermal runaway from developing within the battery compartment.
