Johnsons Hill Tunnel NZ

Johnson Hill Tunnel  This project is very similar to Lane Cove and Eastlink tunnels except it’s a lot smaller. With two bored tubes, each 345m long its certainly the smallest. However we also have to consider the seismic activity in the region so any design of piping, valves or support systems must take account of possible earthquakes. Fibre optic heat detection operates the deluge sprinkler systems.

Birla Nifty Mine Site WA

Birla Nifty Mine Site  DesignFire provided design and support for the complete fire services at the Birla Nifty mine site. Our design included a new underground hydrant main, hose reels, extinguishers and fire pumps. Switch rooms and support buildings also included fire detection and alarm systems networked via the site fibre communications systems.

BP Petroleum Refinery Kwinana WA

BP Petrolieum Refinery Kwinana WA  Perhaps one of the most difficult, hazardous, and for fire professionals, the most interesting sites, DesignFire have been involved in various projects throughout the years at the Kwinana site. In conjunction with Worley and others we have been designing fire protection systems for many process plants and applications.
Comprehensive fire detection measures involve the most intelligent and reliable systems. Gas detection is strategically located to detect early presence of a possible material escape. Strategically placed perimeter or point detection is selected to suit the process and geography. Numerous gas types including Hydogen Sulphide, Hydrogen, Methane present various challenges in detection.
Infra red Flame detection is a another way to monitor the plant area. Located to provide general protection in the majority of the process plants, a quick response is assured should an emergency event occur.  
Signals are repeated via the plant DCS to the duty operators in the control room, who can initiate emergency response crews, activate deluge systems, fire water monitors and control the plant processes.
Pressure vessels, process plants and the like are provided with Deluge systems, either manual or automatic systems to suit the risk. fire water monitors have also been provided.

Midland Shopping Development (Super A mart)

Super A mart DesignFire produced detailed design for the fire sprinkler systems to the main sales floor and the high pile storage warehouse. Fire water pumps and tanks were also included in the design.
