This project involved a full fire protection fitout for a new-build SRF Pelleting Plant.  WKE take solid recovered fuel (SRF) and process it through their state of the art facility to produce SIRF Pellets – which are an alternative to traditional fuels for the cement, power, steel and brick industries.

Blazequel designed, installed and commissioned a range of fire detection and suppression systems for all risk areas of this facility, including:

  • A pumped water supply, flowing 9200lt/minute, with a total of 1.042 million litres of water stored onsite in dual tanks.
  • A full fire sprinkler system, throughout all building and process areas.
  • Automatic water cannons in the Feedstock Hall
  • Process-line protection with spark/ember detection and suppression throughout the entire production process.
  • Deluge protection within key conveyors.
  • A full site fire detection and alarm system.
  • Aspirating smoke detection within key electrical cabinets.
  • Integration to the site gas shutoff valve, to close the valve in the event of a fire alarm.
  • Integration to fire dampers between the Feedstock and Production Halls, to close these openings in the event of a fire alarm.
  • Full integration between the fire systems and the plant SCADA.
