Industrial fire protection & foam system specialists

When Toledo Engineering was awarded an EPC contract from ADNOC Refining (TAKREER - the state refining company in the UAE) for the construction of hydrocracker and hydroskimmer plants at the Ruwais Refinery, they brought in Knowsley SK for our expertise in firefighting systems.

Our approach

Knowledge through experience

At Knowsley SK, we have full and extensive knowledge of the specifications required, having supplied TAKREER for several years with all their requirements.

We liaised directly between the client and the contractors at Toledo to be certain all designs were clarified with the brief and to ensure all systems were fully compliant with the project specifications.


After hearing about the client’s time constraints and their concerns over sizes, we set about providing a hydraulic modelling assessment, as we knew this would help size the delivery pipework and ensure that all the correct pumps were specified for the required applications.

We then designed, manufactured and commissioned a full fire protection system. It incorporated remote controlled elevated monitors to provide a fire water attack to any location in the barn and a cooling water curtain system for the barn’s partition wall.

The monitors could be operated from a safe location in the central control room and directed with the help of CCTV.
