4th Tunnel Operation & Maintenance Conference

30 March 2017


Fire Protection Technologies was again the Major Sponsor at the 4th annual Tunnel Operation & Maintenance Conference held at the Novotel Hotel in Sydney on February 22 & 23.

Over the course of the two-day event, we made contact and networked with tunnel designers, constructors, operators, and end users.

Barry Farrell, our Water Mist Systems Product Manager, presented a paper detailing the essential differences, advantages and disadvantages between high pressure water mist and low pressure deluge fixed firefighting systems.  Barry’s paper detailed the lower long term cost of ownership for the Water Mist System due to the technologically advance remote testing facilities.

Barry’s  presentation was very well received and led to an animated and enthusiastic audience participation and interest for future potential tunnel projects.

Fire Protection Technologies has already been confirmed as the Major Sponsor for the 5th year in a row for the 2018 conference to be held in Melbourne next February.
