Kentec’s arrival at Bergen’s new airport terminal
A new life safety system based around Kentec’s Syncro XT+ addressable extinguishing control panel technology is being installed in the new 4 billion Kroner (Euro 407m) terminal at Norway’s Bergen Flesland International Airport. Bergen Flesland’s new terminal will treble the airport’s capacity and will include a new dedicated train line connecting Flesland to Bergen city centre. The terminal building itself will be scalable, featuring all core functions, including check-in, baggage, storage systems, security control, and departure and arrival halls on two separate levels.
Norwegian company Brannslokkesystemer AS was commissioned to design and install a Novec 1230 extinguishing system, controlled by a Kentec Syncro XT+ network comprising of 11 multi-area addressable extinguishant control panels with loop powered status indicator units and using Apollo communications protocol. Brannslokkesystemer AS imports, designs and assembles automatic gas extinguishing systems for the marine and land-based market throughout Norway.
Kentec’s latest Syncro XT+ control panels are the leading multi-area addressable extinguishant control panel solution, fully approved to EN12094-1, EN54-2 and EN54-4. Syncro XT+ provides addressable detection over 1 or 2 loops with 16 Zone LED Indicators and is available with up to four extinguishant release control units built in.
The extinguishant control modules on the Syncro XT+ have a comprehensive set of inputs and outputs to monitor and control the extinguishing system whether it be gas, aerosol or another. Being configurable via a simple programming interface means that the panel can be programmed to meet the clients’ specific requirements.
Kentec are leaders in extinguishant technology, the first company to introduce an EN12094-1:2003 compliant extinguishing panel. Since 1985, the company has specialised in comprehensive systems for extinguishant control together with the design and manufacture of a wide range of extinguishing control panels. EN12094-1 became a harmonized standard in 2006 and Kentec was the sole manufacturer able to apply the CE mark showing compliance with the Construction Products Directive to any type of fire control panel.
