4PET Recycling is a PET recycling organization with a processing capacity of approximately 750 million bottles per year. The bottles are recycled to Corepet®; in the industry known as a low weight, stable and strong plastic raw material which is resistant to chemicals. In order to meet strict safety requirements in the short term, we have entered into a partnership to realize the appropriate fire protection installations for each (risk) space, both inside and outside.

    Challenge; New factory in existing building

    The new factory in Duiven was realized in an existing new building where no fire protection measures had yet been taken. The insurer (FM) and the municipality had strict requirements and points of attention that had to be taken into account, such as compartmentalisation and outdoor storage.

    It soon became apparent that the lead time of the project would be critical to complete all phases. For 4PET, we have drawn up a starting document and parallel to this the engineering and cost estimate. This also includes the requirements of the insurer and municipality. These were submitted to the client who quickly decided that we would receive the order and the work could start immediately.

    Approach; Fast start-up time

    Immediately afterwards we had the UPD validated, the engineering and drawing work started, assembly teams planned and prefab ordered. Within three weeks we started with the execution work so we stayed just before the start of the factory layout.

    Result

    Suitable fire protection per area

    The factory is protected with a sprinkler system, also the outer fa├žade in connection with the outdoor transformers and covered storage. For the technical rooms, an extinguishing gas installation with SK Inerflex extinguishing gas was chosen. The existing evacuation system has been maintained and put into use again.
