Bull’s Cygnus alarm system boosts presence with Faroe factory rebuild

  • 27 Mar 2019

Bull Products, a manufacturer of life-saving fire protection equipment, is protecting the rebuild of a fish factory in the Faroe Islands.

In 2017, the fish factory in Tvøroyri suffered from a massive fire, which left 150 people temporarily out of work, reducing ship traffic at the port.

Eight months on, the new foundations of the building are being built, with fire alarm systems playing a vital role in the rebuild.

Working alongside contractors, Leif Mohr, Bull has supplied Cygnus fire call points and heat detectors, providing protection for workers and the new building until works are completed later on this year.

The Cygnus Wireless Alarm System is a major innovation in wireless emergency fire, first aid, and intruder alarms for construction sites.

Manufactured by Bull Products, it has already been used on some of the largest construction projects nationwide and overseas, including seven shipyards in Norway, a science institute in Copenhagen and Battersea Power Station.

Bradley Markham, director at Bull Products, commented: “Fire protection is one of the most crucial elements during any construction project and it is vital that fire alarm systems are in place to protect workers and a site.

“In an emergency, the Cygnus alarm system quickly alerts workers of the dangers ensuring their safety remains number one priority. We’re delighted to be working alongside Leif Mohr and safeguarding all areas of the building.”

Magni Johannesen, sales co-ordinator at Leif Mohr, added: “We are very pleased with how the Cygnus alarm system is performing on site so far.

“Due to the fish factory suffering from a major fire, fire protection is even more important during the rebuild and we are confident that the site will be protected to the highest standards thanks to Cygnus.”
