Interserve selects Cygnus for Templeborough Power Plant Project

Construction company Interserve has been awarded along with Babock & Vølund a £150 million contract by the Brite Partnership North East to construct a biomass-fired power plant in Rotherham.

The Templeborough Biomass Power Plant will be fired with locally sourced waste wood with a capacity of 45MW. The plant will generate a power output equivalent to the energy consumption of 70,000 households which will cause a reduction of carbon dioxide by 360 tonnes. The project is set for completion for full operation in the second quarter of 2017.

Interserve have appointed Bull Products to supply and install temporary fire safety equipment on the Templeborough Biomass Project which commenced last year. Fire point trolleys equipped with fire extinguishers and Cygnus wireless alarm units will be installed strategically around the site. Each mobile fire point trolley includes a Cygnus fire call point alarm which is wirelessly connected to a main panel that’s located in the site office.

The control panel incorporates a GSM/GPRS modem; which means activations can be directly reported to a third part monitoring station and/or site personnel via SMS text messaging. The panel can also be accessed from a PC so users can remotely view the systems status from any location.

The Cygnus alarm system and fire protection equipment will be serviced and maintained by Bull Products’ BAFE and CSCS certified engineers whilst full technical and service support is available from the dedicated service team.

Bull Products is an environmentally friendly business and are certificated to the trilogy of standards that includes ISO9001, ISO14001 and BS OHSAS 18001, and are proud to be working on a project which echoes our environmental ethics.
