First major European win with Shell
We are proud to have recently secured our first major European contract with British–Dutch multinational oil and gas company, Shell during the renovation of its oldest building in the Netherlands.
The grade II listed building, which has been established for more than 100 years, started showing serious signs of decay. In order to restore the building to its original state, major restoration work was required, during which time our alarm systems were vital in order to protect the site.
“After we saw this system at the Shell building in London, we were confident it would be ideal during renovation of our headquarters in the Netherlands. There’s so much historical significance and important architectural impact that we want to preserve, therefore it was crucial that we worked with Bull to ensure we had the right alarm systems in place in order to protect this building to the highest standards.” Raymond Huizing, Project Manager at Shell.
More than 100 alarm units have been installed on site including our Cygnus Control Panel, Cygnus Repeater Unit, Cygnus Heat Detector, and our First Responder Station with the Fire Call Point and First Aid Alarm which will ensure that the building is protected 24-7.
