Renewable Energy needs Protection

In the ever changing energy sector it is often overlooked that the assests employed to harness the green energy also need protection.  In the area of tidal generation there is still much development and testing of the latest cutting edge technology.  Although the generation of tidal energy is silent and invisible the testing of the technology require access to the turbines in their remote location.  The development and testing platform is constructed between a twin-piled structure in the turbulent currents off the Orkney Islands, Scotland.  

Space and access to the testing facility are limited and a reliable fire protection solution was required to protect the test facility.  A solution was engineered, but due to the limitations of the site and access, the construction was competently completed by site staff who were professionally guided by our technical support.
