Bahra- Group of Factories

BAHRA - Group of Factories

One of the most challenging projects is the Bahra Group of factories, with more than 20 factories located in CPC Industrial State in Bahra, we managed to cover 10 factories & facility buildings with most advanced fire detection technologies.

These buildings are now monitored by Bahra main Fire Fighters’ station.

Thanks to latest technology from BOSCH, we managed to connect all these factories to a single Fire Alarm System Main Station with graphical display. all panels are reporting full devices status live to the station.

The Main Station is most critical for Fire fighters to monitor & control all connected panels, it identify & shows exactly where the fire happened, and keeping record for all panels & devices.

Each factory has it own conditions to be considered in detection a fire which made each building a case & challenge by itself.

The conditions we had to recognize prior to design are:

Based on the above we managed to cover each building with the following solutions:

BAHRA Cable Main Building

Scope of work:

This building divided into main admin offices, Cables production area & CV Line,

we covered the offices mostly with multi detectors, the Cable production area is more than 10,000 square meters (6 meters high ) filled with machines processing cables the best solution to cover this area was by using auto-aligned beam detectors with auto sensing adjustment feature, CV line is a tower consist of 6 floors to process Bale coating materials we chose to install multi-detectors to cover the tower & eventually we mange dot connect all these detectors to three networked Fire alarm panes.

Busbar & BC Conduit Building

Scope of work:

The busbar & BC Conduit building was one of the most difficult buildings to cover with fire detectors as PVC processing method produce an unwanted dust that makes a false alarm to regular smoke detection methods to overcome it, we installed multi sensor with adjusted sensitivity connected to a networked fire alarm panel.

BAHRA TBS

Scope of work:

The TBS (transformer & busway solution by Legrand) factory specialized in manufacturing medium-voltage transformers & provide busway solutions, with area more than 5,000 square meters & more than 7 meters high filled with machines, we installed auto-aligned bean detectors to cover all areas, connected to a networked panel.

Aluminum Processing Building

Scope of work:

This building has furnaces to process aluminum under high temperature therefor regular heat & smoke detection is no use in here so the best solution was to install auto-aligned adjusted sensitivity beam detectors & to minimize false alarms as possible the panel has been programmed to works as a double knock strategy, it works as follows : if a fire detected in one detector the panel shall wait for another fire signal from another detector to confirm the fire status, all these detectors are connected  to a networked panel

Warehouse for Row materials & spare parts

Scope of work:

This warehouse contains a raw materials to process cables ( copper , aluminums , PVC …etc ) it is very important to detect a fire in it’s early stage as some of these materials are easy to catch a flame &  rabidly spread the fire along the warehouse , for that we installed the state of the art Video based fire detection cameras from BOSCH that can detect smoke & flame in a seconds along with aspiration smoke detection technology connected to a networked fire alarm panel.

 

Warehouse Finished goods

Scope of work:

This warehouse contains all finished goods produced by the factory; it is high value products that we need to make sure it is safe with fast fire detection; therefore, we used the latest Aspiration technology connected to a networked panel.

Factory for (Assembly of Mechanical & Electrical works)

Scope of work:

The (Factory for Assembly of Mechanical & Electrical works) are manufacturing mechanical & electrical accessors for installation works, with area more than 3,000 square meters and 7 meters high filled with machines we installed auto-aligned beam detectors connected to a networked pane

Bahra General Site

Scope of work:

In the general site there are electrical generators rooms with smoke extraction fans, these generators are supervised by the fire alarm panel through interface modules to control the smoke extraction fans as long as these generators are ON.

Fire Water tanks must be monitored by the fire alarm panel for water level to make sure this tank is full & ready to use by firefighters.

Firefighting water pumps must be monitored by the fire alarm panel to ensure pumps are ready for operation in any second.

Power Center Co. Building

Project Name :install auto-aligned beam detectors to cover it all . connected to networked panel

Scope of work:

The Power center Co. is a specialized high professional company that assembles & manufacture electrical panels, building area around 5,000 square meters ( more than 7 meters high ) we managed to install auto-aligned beam detectors to cover it all . connected to networked panel

 

Power Center Co. Building

Project Name : Auto-aligned beam detectors connected to networked fire alarm panel.

Scope of work:

A factory specialized in manufacturing & provide storage solution for warehouse, area more than 6,000 square meters with 8 meters high, the best solution is auto-aligned beam detectors connected to networked fire alarm panel.
