MJW will apply its extensive experience with designing, installing and maintaining the industrial fire alarm systems in paper and tissue manufacturing environments to a major tissue manufacturing expansion at an East Coast facility.
MJW has performed previous work for this international manufacturer, which is now undertaking a plant expansion. MJW has provided a state-of-the-art fire detection, fire alarm and mass notification system in their existing facility and the new equipment and systems will tie seamlessly into the existing plant network. Phase one, including installation of HVAC duct detection, alarms and shutdown circuits, was performed in late summer of 2017, and the work on the expansion is slated to begin in 2018.
MJW is providing a complete turn-key, design-build services for this expansion project, including professional engineering, detailed design, procurement, construction and commissioning of the fire alarm and mass notification systems. Close coordination with many construction teams involved in this expansion project will be required to meet the schedule and integrate the added tissue manufacturing capacity to the already substantial capacity this facility serves their consumers with throughout the SouthEast.
Safety is a #1 priority and a key performance requirement for this paper tissue manufacturing customer, completely aligning with MJW’s exemplary safety culture and an industry-leading safety record.
