SYSTEM SUMMARY

FireFinder SP16 was used with cable entry from the base of the panel using Klippon Terminals. The Firefinder SP16 internal layout was designed in conjunction with Semco Maritime to assist with installation and wiring of all damper controls and terminations within the FIP due to site constraints.

SITE SPECIFIC CHALLENGES

Provide a complete project solution,training and support from the ground up for the installer Semco Maritime Denmark, a first time user of the Ampac Firefinder range of detection systems. Detection types included Flame Detection, Thermal Detection, Smoke Detection, Intrinsically Safe Detection.

PROJECT SPECIFIC SOLUTIONS

The powerful programming capability and flexibility of the FireFinder and it’s modules ensured that the exact system design specifications and requirements were met.

Intensive product training and programming was provided within the purpose built Ampac head office in Perth Western Australia. This allowed for the seamless integration of the Firefinder and Ampac fire detection equipment during the project installation. To compliment the training a 100% factory acceptance test was completed alongside Semco Maritime. Ampac staff continued the support of the project through the installation phase.
