Customised Cygnus Wireless Alarm System Created For Canary Wharf Cofferdam
The latest Cygnus development and innovation has been designed for Canary Wharf Contractors, who are currently dewatering a cofferdam at their Wood Wharf Project. This project is a 38 acre extension to the existing Canary Wharf estate. The Cygnus units include panic buttons, beacons and a traffic light system, with interfaces linked to inclinometers and flow switches. These units are part of an entirely purpose-built system which Bull Products designed specifically with Canary Wharf Contractors to assist them in ensuring alerts are made due to any movement of the dam walls or any leaks causing a rapid rising of water. The system incorporates a traffic light to ensure it is safe to travel into certain areas. The Additional call points and first aid alerts from the Cygnus System can link up to this bespoke system therefore enabling an entire site wide alarm and evacuation.
As a “£200m deal to kick-start London’s vast Wood Wharf” this project has been designed to provide a new residential and mixed use waterside community featuring distinctive architecture and quality public spaces. Bull Products are proud to be part of this extensive project as 2015 has welcomed the start of a Cygnus install to continue over the next 10 years.
