Fire & Safety Systems experience in industrial fire protection extends for more than 40 years, both in Australia and overseas.
Based in Brisbane, the family owned and operated firm specialises in fire protection for industrial high-risk projects including mine sites, power stations, petrochemical plants, smelters and refineries.
“In the end, equipment is still equipment. It’s how you respond on-site that really makes a difference,” said FSS Principal, Brad Pickersgill.
“We pride ourselves on our ability to keep pace with fast-tracked schedules, which is all important these days, given the increasingly schedule-driven nature of the industry,” he said.
Fire & Safety was engaged in the West Kimberley Power Project mid last year for the detailed design, supply and installation of all fire detection and protection systems.
“From our point of view, it’s been a pleasure to work on this project – quite refreshing actually,” said Mr Pickersgill.
“Although it’s been a particularly aggressive schedule, EDL hasn’t been afraid to make decisions, allowing and entrusting us to get on with our job and do it well,” he said.
“Getting equipment to the remote sites on time has been challenging at times, but we’ve been able to manage this, and overall it’s been one of the most satisfying projects we’ve worked on in a long while.”
In other works, Fire & Safety Systems also provided fire protection for the Darwin LNG Project and enjoys an ongoing alliance with the Newcastle and Bowen Basin coal fields.
