Bull Products

Largest European construction project protected with Bull’s Cygnus

  • 28 Jun 2019

Bull Products has strengthened its presence in the rail industry, courtesy of a large contract for London’s Crossrail Tunnels project – one of Europe’s largest infrastructure projects.

The £15 billion underground rail project will accommodate 200 million passengers a year, delivering 10 new stations, including Paddington, Bond Street and Tottenham Court Road.

The current phase of the project includes the installation of tracks across a 26-mile tunnel, in which an alarm system with a high signal strength and connectivity was sought, in order to protect workers and the site around the clock.

The Cygnus alarm system has provided the ideal solution for the Crossrail tunnels project, due to its powerful radio, long-range connectivity and ability to overcome signal obstacles.

Bradley Markham, Director at Bull Products, commented: “The Crossrail project will completely transform the infrastructure in London.

“But with that comes a lot of risks and challenges that workers face on a daily basis such as fires breaking out and intruders accessing the site out of hours.

“We are delighted that our alarm system has been installed to offer maximum safety as the project progresses.”

To meet customer and market demand, the Cygnus radio system has been undergoing some upgrades and modifications, which will include added functionality, improved battery life, better configuration software and a combined smoke and heat detector.

The current system is the most adaptable temporary fire alarm system and has been used on some of the largest construction projects nationwide.
