FAELSAFE SMC SUBCONTRACTS FIRE DETECTION SYSTEM DESIGNS FOR BIOMASS STORAGE FACILITY AT LIVERPOOL BULK TERMINAL

In operation since 1993 Liverpool Bulk Terminal (LBT) is a coal importing facility situated within the Port of Liverpool at Gladstone Dock. It is capable of handling five million tonnes of coal from vessel to stock and then reclaiming to rail or road loading hoppers.

The road facility allows for a maximum of 3,000mt each day to be transported from site. Similarly the rail network can handle up to 12 trains per day each carrying around 1,400mt. A train can be loaded in approximately 20 minutes.

A major feature of the Terminal design is the environmental controls designed to minimised coal dust emissions. This involves dust suppression sprays fitted on fixed conveying plant and around the coal stockyard. In addition a water bowser is used for spraying coal stocks to prevent dust.

The Terminal is designed to store, treat and reuse water. The drainage system has been designed to collect all water run-off from around the site into a large concrete sump. The water is then pumped through a water treatment system that removes the solids and stores the clarified water ready for reuse. All water discharged into the dock complies with consent limits imposed by the Environment Agency.

Liverpool Port is to receive deliveries of wood pellet biomass for co-firing at its UK power stations.. The fuel will be taken from the ships by a new off-loader and relayed via a series of conveyors into the Biomass Bulk Fuel Storage Facility. Biomass will then be loaded from this storage facility onto rail vehicles for delivery to the power stations.

Working alongside Fireworks Fire Protection Ltd., Faelsafe SMC's scope of work covers fire detection system designs for the biomass storage facility, monitoring for high CO levels with a bespoke imported CO monitor, manufactured by Omnicron. Additionally, the signalling and activation of a complex sprinkler system to ensure the deluge of individually programmed zones within the storage facility.

Networking the entire system onto the existing site system, alongside rail bunker detection and a site analogue control system will bring it all together.
