Rio Tinto Aluminium – Yarwun Refinery

Queensland, Australia

FSS has an association with Comalco that spans more than 30 years – and the client was keen to have FSS’ experts managing the fire and safety systems required for its ‘greenfield’ landmark alumina refinery.

The FSS project team was involved from concept to commissioning and ensured the seamless implementation of all fire systems.

Services included specialised fire detection systems for critical plant, a combined process and fire water system, and special fire protection and suppression systems.

In September 2007, FSS was appointed to the project team for Stage 2 of the Yarwun Project, ensuring that the philosophies and system established on Stage 1 are continued seamlessly.
