Industrial emergency warning systems
For a large production plant in Saudi Arabia we were tasked with the design, delivery and integration of a new emergency management. The requirement was to provide a new siren warning system that should be audible indoor and outdoor throughout the plant.
We started out by making a site survey to define the background noise level and inspect the existing warning systems installed. The survey showed that the production plant already had a public address system in the admin building, a paging system in the production area, and a fire and gas detection system throughout the plant. However, there was no working outdoor siren system.
We also recommended reusing the existing indoor PA system and paging system. Adding a Giant Voice control center would enable a single operator to issue timely, effective and informative warning when needed.
The plant management agreed to this solution as it fulfilled – and exceeded – their requirement for visual and audible warning. Additionally, it proved to be a cost-effective solution, as a better overall warning system solution was achieved through the integration of existing equipment in combination with new outdoor TWS295 sirens from the HSS product range.
The actual installation of the new emergency management system was relatively simple due to the fact that most of the customised configuration was carried out before the Factory Acceptance Test. Also, the production plant was able to continue work in the process areas during installation, as HSS reused indoor PA and paging systems that were already present in the production units. Following the installation, we were informed by the plant management that the system worked with a very high satisfaction level – and that it would ultimately help save lives.
