The Blackwall Tunnel is a critical transport link underneath the River Thames in East London, linking the London Borough of Tower Hamlets with the Royal Borough of Greenwich, and part of the A102 road. FPG was commissioned to install, design and build an Inert Foam Suppression system, including ATEX classified Gas Detection and Fire Alarm Monitoring. This protects the Blackwall Tunnel mid river sump.
Tunnel sumps pose a high hazard risk, confined space entry, road closures and impose minimum working hours. This is a key win for our High Hazard Division and represents another tunnel win for FPG with Transport for London.
