Ontario, Canada – November 23, 2020 – inControl Systems Inc., a Canadian manufacturer and integrator of engineered fire protection solutions, is pleased to announce another successful completion of the supply of a custom-designed firefighting foam system to protect the remotely located FORTISBC natural gas compressor station in Kitchener BC.
With the FORTISBC LNG gas compressor stations being remotely located in the mountains of British Columbia, providing a suitable fire protection solution can prove to be very challenging with traditional fire systems. A project in such remote mountainous locations as this one, with no available water supply, requires innovative and creative engineering. The team at inControl Systems Inc. thrive on opportunities and challenges such as this. The engineers at inControl Systems designed and developed a completely stand-alone and integrated fire protection solution based upon the guiding principles of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). This integrated and self-contained fire protection solution was all neatly packaged and mounted on a tidy skid frame, for easy transportation, and plug and play installation at site.
Mr. Carmine Colarocchio, President at inControl Systems Inc., stated, “working together with our local partners, Viking Fire Protection Inc. in BC, for the successful installation and start-up of our system, was a great experience. We have been working with the fine folks at Viking Fire Protection Inc for many years, and we have become very effective and efficient in delivering great fire protection solutions to our friends in British Columbia.
Additionally, Mr. Colarocchio goes on to say, “at this particular site, our system was being installed in the area where the fire risk was, so we had to supply an explosion-proof version of our firefighting foam system. This required special attention to detail in the design and integration, so that we would adhere to the strict requirements in this environment.”
Integrated firefighting foam skids, whether for safe area, or hazard area installation, are just a small part of what is manufactured at inControl Systems. Complete fire protection solutions are available from inControl Systems in Toronto, Canada.
