Alstom Power Limited
Energy Centre and Grain Power Station.
To develop a fire safety strategy for two new gas fired power stations and conduct Fire Risk Assessment and Fire System Installation Audits.
To design compliant buildings and sites while developing a dialogue with the Regulators to ensure smooth project delivery.
Exova (now owned by Element Materials Technology) undertook various phased bespoke risk assessments to suit each project, with reports presented in a style to match legislative life safety requirements. Assessments covered the preliminary fire risk assessment and the construction phase to comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire safety) Order 2005 while satisfying the requirements of the Health and Safety Executive.
The dialogue with the Regulators proved very effective, with the project quickly progressing to the design and approval stage. Compliance with the Order was achieved by satisfying both the Health and Safety Executive and the fire authority, and the site programme benefited from compliance with many protocols including Dangerous Substance and Explosive Atmosphere Regulations.
