Shawcity expands Fixed Gas Detection business

19 May 2021

SHAWCITY HAS made a considerable investment in their Fixed Gas Detection team expansion over the last twelve months and now have a team of in-house field engineers and a fleet of vans supporting our customers across the UK and Ireland providing surveys, installations and service contracts.

Health and safety across so many applications never stops in terms of providing vital products and services, no matter what the circumstances. During the pandemic, many businesses have battled to function effectively under difficult conditions, with many facing site restrictions including closure to visitors and even contractors.

These same organisations have also had the challenge of continuing to develop new projects, due to start following the lockdown period. Typically, this growth and expansion has been years in the planning, and this has been especially applicable for Shawcity and many of their customer base.

As gas detection specialists, Shawcity has been offering an end-to-end service designing, installing, commissioning and servicing fixed gas detection systems for a diverse range of applications for nearly twenty years.

Over the last twelve months Shawcity has won several new key contracts for delivery during 2021 and 2022. One of these new contracts amounts to a £250k+ order for a fixed gas detection system at Olympic Park, Stratford.

At the start of 2020, Shawcity also announced a new distribution partnership with Crowcon, a well-known UK gas detection manufacturer. The newly expanded product range and system features, combined with Shawcity’s industry expertise, has proven to be a powerful combination in winning this large contract.

The final system design has in excess of 200 sensors monitoring O2, CO, CO2, NH3 & LEL across two main laboratory floors within the ten-storey building.

The detailed system offers many auxiliary features such as sounder beacons to control entrances and exits, panic buttons and also the ability to control solenoid valves on the gas feed pipelines in the event of a leak or alarm.

Several control panels will be used on each laboratory floor and Shawcity will install a local area network so that these control panels communicate back to a centralised location on the ground floor to offer real-time overall system data, as well as local alerts.

The system is due to commence throughout Q3 and Q4 in 2021, with the remainder installed and commissioned during the first half of 2022.
