In 2018, a new police station was built in the growing desert town of Marmul. The station is located within the Petroleum Development Camp which is the leading oil and gas exploration & production company in Oman. The Marmul police station is spread across nine buildings and can accommodate in the region of 200 people; it was therefore vital to install an efficient and reliable fire detection solution.
Project management company Dolphin Trading & Investment L.L.C. were enlisted to oversee the build, and they hired fire detection specialists, Be One Safety, to design and install the new fire detection system.
Product quality was high on the specification; they required a system with long term reliability and superior performance; Be One Safety therefore decided that Hochiki would be able to provide the perfect solution.
Hochiki devices have been optimised to reduce false alarms, but also provide a quick response in the event of a real fire. The devices are renowned for being robust, reliable and having an extremely long life span; making them a very cost-effective solution. For this reason, Hochiki devices have been first choice for many prestigious buildings around the world.
Be One Safety installed nine EN 54 approved fire panels, one in each of the nine buildings, networked together with over 700 Hochiki analogue addressable sensors.
Due to the complexity of the project, the onsite engineers relied heavily upon assistance from the regional Hochiki technical support team at Hochiki Middle East FZE. This high-quality technical support is another reason why distributors repeatedly place their trust in the Hochiki brand.
The Marmul Police Station was completed and handed over successfully in 2018. Since then, Fire Protection specialists Proline Safety, Security & Gas have taken over all ROP projects and have been working alongside Hochiki Middle East on an EN system for Mirbat Police Station and a UL system for Al Awabi Police Station.
