Boyne Smelter Line 3 Expansion Project

Gladstone, Queensland, Australia

To prepare for the smelter expansion, FSS assessed all necessary fire services including expansion of the fire alarm network, extension of underground hydrants and installation of local fire detection and alarm systems, automatic sprinklers and high velocity water spray protection.

FSS managed detailed design, documentation, tender evaluation and selection of fire services contractors, plus we provided ongoing site support to the focal point of the expansion project (this involved replacing a 17 year old facility). Additional FSS services included testing and approving the new systems in conjunction with fire and rescue authorities and regulatory bodies within an extremely tight timeframe. The smelter potline has the record for the fastest build time in the world.
