Based at Prestwick the high technology centre of GE Aviation is one of only two UK specialist overhaul and repair facilities. The Prestwick facility specialises in the GEnx next generation turbofan, the workhorse engine of the 21st century for medium-capacity, long-range aircraft such as the Boeing 787 & 747-8.
With such valuable assets and a world class facility GE chose FPG to replace the existing Fire Alarm System with an L1 category analogue addressable automatic Fire Detection System c/w full colour Graphics, 7 panel network, point detection and aspirating units throughout.
Such an important site deserves a world class platform and in this instance FPG chose to use Hochiki Europe as their leading manufacturer. Renowned for its robust protocol, reliability and build quality Hochiki were delighted that their 24 year partnership with FPG continues to grow from strength to strength.
