Jetty protection

Jetties are installed at major hazard plant for the bulk loading and offloading of hazardous substances between ships and land based storage facilities. Incidents which occur at the jetty and involve hazardous substances have the potential to result in a major accident and potentially a loss of infrastructure which may delay or halt operations resulting in huge financial loss.

Jetty protection

Our specialists ensure the optimum design and supply of critical safety systems, particularly to protect the jetty head area from fire, explosion and the effects of toxic releases.
The loading arms must be protected but due to their nature and height they present a three-dimensional challenge to the designer requiring the selection of elevated foam monitors which must be remotely controlled from a safe location.

All jetty systems must have a reliable and effective foam supply package and be capable of withstanding the harshest of environmental conditions. With an industry leading product range and extensive reference list we are ready to provide you with the optimum solution for your facility.

Our approach to fire protection

Effective fire protection requires the right balance between your equipment and systems, your onsite capability, and the potential risks a fire can cause. At Knowsley SK, we employ a structured approach to help you find the very best solution to your fire protection needs.

Site survey

Assess hazards, layout, processes & products

Our first step is to conduct a site survey, to assess the onsite hazards and the site layout, detail processes and evaluate stored products. Every site has a unique set of challenges which must be determined so that we can recommend the best solution. Our site survey will produce a detailed report with recommendations for improvements and may include a base outline of costs so that a scope of work can be agreed.

Quotation & design

Initial design and costs

When a clear scope of work has been defined, we then begin with the initial pre-bid design works. This helps with the preparation of an initial cost estimate (quotation), which is then submitted to you. This typically leads to a technical evaluation phase, so we can give site disciplines or approved 3rd party organisations the opportunity to comment on the plans and suggest possible changes. Once all details are agreed, a final quotation is submitted, and the contract documents can be signed.

Project management

Smooth execution & maintenance

We assign you a dedicated Project Manager to act as a single point contract for all commercial and technical matters, helping to ensure a smooth execution process at all times. After the contract documents are signed, a full, detailed design and co-ordination with certifying authorities will be finalised. When any of our projects are completed, we will recommend a term maintenance agreement that includes all necessary testing. This helps us ensure your critical systems are always in optimum condition and provides you with absolute peace of mind.
