Oiltanking Amsterdam has selected SA Fire Protection for 15 foam manifold skids as part of an upgrade of its fire-fighting system.
The project is due to be completed by the end of August 2018 and all practices and activities will be carried out at SA Fire's factory in San Pier Niceto, Italy.
The company will be responsible for the DCS installation and pre-commissioning of the fire panel, which will be interconnected with the instruments inside the foam housing. SA Fire will carry out in-house full functional tests on the whole installation using a hydraulic laboratory in SPN to measure flow rate, pressure and to verify the operation of the deluges valves. It will also test the foam proportioning equipment in order to validate the complete functionality under real conditions before the foam manifold skids leave the factory.
Oiltanking Amsterdam has 1.6 million m3 and is connected to Schiphol airport via a 20 kilometre pipeline.
In a statement SA Fire says: 'This project confirms the strong position of SA Fire Protection as manufacturer of reliable fire-fighting systems for large scale international oil terminal operators. In line with the company's future plans in the north European market, SA Fire will increase its presence across the region for the supply of fire suppression systems for terminal operators and refineries.'
