Cable distribution

Throughout power plants system and data cables are distributed using cable trays – these cables not only keep the plant operational, but also control the safety systems and it is vitally important to protect them against fire.

Due to the nature of power plants dust build up or combustious material may end up in these trays – using smoke detectors from Siemens will ensure that should a fire hazard occur, it is immediately detected and alarming information given to the control room. In high-risk areas, detection can also be combined with automatic extinguishing.
