Northpoint was approached by our customer Valmech Welding Ltd to provide FBE coating solutions to fabrications bound for Heathrow Airport Fire Main – E2 Carpark Valve Chamber. The scheme comprises of the strip-out of the redundant pipework and replacement of new valves and pipework within the new chamber including new chamber and top housing.

The Heathrow Fire Main is fed from the Eastern Balancing Reservoirs which collect and store water from the runways which is then pumped via the M14 pumphouse under the A30 dual carriageway and around the airport on a ring main.

Another successful operation carried out by Northpoint, delivering protective coating to the highest quality and within the tight timeframe dictated by this demanding project.
