Managers of power generation facilities face several challenges when it comes to fire protection:
- Facilities often have a patchwork of complex fire protection systems
- Response time minimizes downtime
- Scheduling inspections and repair work around outages
One Call. One Company. Power generation facilities typically have many different types of fire protection equipment of various ages, manufactured by different vendors. Finding qualified vendors to work on all of these systems can be challenging. AFP technicians are trained to work on a variety of different fire protection systems including fire alarm, fire sprinkler systems (wet systems, dry systems, pre-action and deluge), fire extinguishers, and special hazard fire protection (clean agent and industrial dry chemical). Facility managers only have to make one call for all of their fire protection needs eliminating the need for multiple service companies. Each account has a dedicated account manager so our clients have one point of contact.
Response Time. With five locations in New York and New Jersey and technicians on call 24/7, AFP has the resources to respond to an emergency or service issue in a timely manner. We understand that downtime equals lost revenue.
Outages. AFP has experience working in power generation facilities. We understand that we need to schedule our work around planned outages.
Documentation. AFP’s CRM (Customer Resource Management) system is able to keep track of all pieces of equipment, inspection dates, inspection reports, invoices and work history across multiple buildings. Information is available via our customer extranet so clients can have easy access to their information whenever they need it. Inspection reports are filled out by our technicians on tablets, which eliminates paperwork and decreases the time it takes to receive quotes, invoices and inspection reports.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) provides comprehensive information on NFPA 850 which outlines fire safety recommendations for gas, oil, coal, and alternative fuel electric generating plants, including high voltage direct current converter stations and combustion turbine units used for electric generation.
