PRYSMIAN - The Highest Standard For Enniskillen’s New Acute Hospital

Prysmian’s FP Plus™, with enhanced Insudite™ insulation, cables were used exclusively for the fire system installed in the New Acute Hospital for the Southwest in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. The hospital is scheduled to be completed in June 2012 and will provide 312 patient beds overlooking the picturesque Wolf Lough greenfield site. The £276 million project is a major investment in Northern Ireland improving the level of health care services for the Western Health and Social Care Trust and its near 300,000 population.

Since the project began in 2009, approximately 100,000 metres of cabling has been installed by Dowds Electrical contractors, connecting the extensive fire alarm system and other life safety systems such as Smoke Fire Dampers throughout the building.

Contracts Manager Nigel Connolly of Dowds Group M&E Services explains: ‘We specified Prysmian cables because they meet all current safety requirements whilst also being cost effective. In fact, Prysmian’s FP Plus™ cables actually exceed the current regulations specified for projects in Northern Ireland.”

Nigel continues: “We also had to ensure that the work could be carried out as quickly and economically as possible and to the highest standard, as we had stringent time schedules to work to. With FP Plus being easily dressable and fast to install it fulfilled these needs well. Overall we are delighted with how the job has gone”

Prysmian’s FP Plus™ with enhanced Insudite™ insulation provides an unmatched combination of rigidity and flexibility that is already well established with the market leading FP200 Gold© cable. This feature results in an easy installation for an enhanced cable whilst maintaining full compliance with test requirements and UK standards which includes both BASEC and LPCB approval.

FP Plus™ is approved for fire detection and fire alarm signal paths to BS5839-1:2002+A2:2008 and voice alarm systems to BS5839-8:2008 in enhanced application areas and emergency lighting systems to BS5266-1:2005.

FP Plus™ uses an enhanced variant of the unique Insudite™ damage resistant insulation system with a highly innovative and unique hard skin and fire resistant insulation. Insudite™ surpasses soft skin silicone cables to provide a highly durable and damage resistant insulation that is entirely unique to the Prysmian FP Range, resulting from a highly effective composite.

The (SA+A) Stantec Anshen + Allen designed hospital is created to blend in with the natural landscape and in doing so minimise its environmental impact. Once completed, the hospital will provide the patients and visitors with the highest quality environment for working, resting and recovery.
