Project Name: Covanta Energy, Hillsboro County
Location: 350 North Falkenburg Road, Tampa, FL 33619
Project Type: Waste to Energy Power Plant Facility
Synopsis: Catastrophic diesel fire pump engine failure leaves power plant without fire protection and RentFirePumps.com delivers temporary fire pump solution.
Details: This facility converts non-hazardous waste into energy through a combustion process that generates steam to produce electricity. Fire protection system failure due to an underground leak caused the Plant’s fire pump to run for an extended period damaging the diesel engine leaving the fire sprinkler system out of service.
Solution: A mobile temporary fire pump capable of meeting the demand of the existing fire suppression system was delivered and installed by Sprinklermatic Florida.
Temporary Fire Pump: Diesel 1250 GPM @ 114 PSI – FP Controller (110 v) – Jockey Pump – JP Controller – Test Header – Discharge – Day Tank – Low Fuel Alarm
