The Firestorm Fire Protection Group has worked with various Tunnelling projects
It is imperative to have fire suppression systems on machines and vehicles being used for tunnelling. Our team has worked with different contracts across Australia such as NorthConnex, WestConnex and the NorthWest Rail line in Sydney. These projects included the installation of Fogmaker systems to over 400 machines. The benefits of the Fogmaker systems for the tunnelling market consists of the ability for the Fogmaker system to be installed at any angle. This, coupled with the system being so efficient that the amount of firefighting agent is reduced to 1/10th of a Conventional AFFF System. Size is everything and therefore with a smaller footprint on these smaller machines, additional specialised bracketing is typically not required.
Firestorm also ensures servicing of machinery including 24 x 7 callout facilities are provided given the harsh nature of tunnel works. This ensures maximum uptime of machinery and peace of mind that your fire suppression system will operate should this be required. Firestorm is also able to service non Fogmaker tunnelling equipment, including AFFF, DCP, Gas or Dual agent systems.
