Pipe Center supplies high pressure equipment for Hawkes Fire Mozambique contract

12 March, 2013

Pipe Center is supplying specialist pipes, fittings and valves for use in mobile emergency response fire fighting systems manufactured by Hawkes Fire.

In the latest contract, Pipe Center supplied the Stockton-on-Tees manufacturer with Schedule 40 steel pipe, fittings and JET valves for use in fire fighting, pump trailers, foam proportioner systems, foam trailers and storage systems for a petrochemical plant in Mozambique.
Equipment for the contract, which has just been shipped, includes a foam system container, two pump trailers and associated fire fighting equipment.
The high pressure components and valves control the flow of water within the foam system, in order to generate the large volumes required to deal with intense petrochemical fires.
The equipment is being used to replace and upgrade current facilities at the plant.
In a second project, Pipe Center is supplying pipe, valves and high pressure couplings for use in two large fire fighting pump trailer units for deployment at an oil refinery in the Middle East.
Andy Hawkes, managing director of Hawkes Fire, said: “We have a long-standing relationship with Pipe Center which goes back several years. They are competitive and give excellent service in terms of stocking and technical support.
He added: “We pride ourselves in producing high quality, proven equipment that can be trusted to perform in the event of an emergency. This in turn depends on the components and materials we use in its manufacture. Pipe Center is a trusted supplier and we can rely on them to deliver for us, so that we can deliver for our own customers.”
