Collinsville Power Station Turnkey Refurbishment

Queensland, Australia

This project required the refurbishment and reinstatement of a major power station that had been off-line for a decade. In order to recommission the facility, all safety and fire systems had to be upgraded or replaced.

FSS refurbished diesel and electric fire pumps; provided new fire detection, alarm and emergency warning systems; replaced old systems with new technology; upgraded high velocity water spray systems for turbo-generators, transformers, lube oil tanks and stores; installed new automatic wet sprinkler systems for the main cable gallery and coal conveyor; and implemented a new high-speed infra-red ember detection system for the coal conveyor.
