OI Manufacturing Ltd – Sprinkler System

Client: OI Manufacturing Ltd
Project length: 6 months
Project value: £66k
Completion date: June 2019
HF divisions involved: Fire and Security

Brief project description:  OI Manufacturing required sprinkler protection within their basement cullet systems, OI Glass is made in more than 20 countries around the globe. They create innovative, distinctive and beautiful glass packaging that builds brands and drives consumer intrigue. They produce over 1 million glass bottles per day from the Alloa site.

Project Challenges : All installation works had to take place with no disruption to production, the basement is underneath the forming machines and any glass bottles not deemed acceptable are pushed down the pipework toward the cullet system for regeneration.

This essentially means that bottles holding temperatures of over 1000c are sliding down the system creating a possible fire risk. HF created a fire safety plan for working within this area as well as erecting scaffolding and engineer protection.

In total HF installed 5 systems covering all areas of the basements deemed a fire risk.

Customer quotes: HF carried out the works in line with the relevant RAMS and performed the installation to a high standard. Clear communication was essential and again, HF performed their duties extremely well
