P50 Extinguishers of choice for Heathrow
Heathrow Procurement Business Partner, Engineering
With over 78 million passengers passing through it in 2017 Heathrow Airport continues to grow year on year. As the first fire extinguisher cased in recyclable composite, that delivers a 20-year life span, the P50 has been chosen to protect the airport as part of its ambitious sustainability strategy known as Heathrow 2.0.
Chris Allen, Heathrow Procurement Business Partner, Engineering, said: “There were many reasons why the P50 appealed to Heathrow. Its lower carbon footprint was one. It is manufactured by a UK business and has a European supply chain.”
“Traditional metal extinguishers typically come with parts imported from Asia and with the P50 we will instantly see a reduction in the supply chain carbon footprint by restricting transit from Asia to the UK.
“The P50 needs just a single refill in its 20-year life span, after which it can be recycled for re-use rather than being sent to land fill.” The technology behind the P50 also means fewer extinguishers are needed on the premises since it covers multiple risks, he said.
“The added benefit of being able to maintain these in-house reduces security clearances for service engineers coming on site.” Adam Watson, Terminal 5 Asset Manager and project lead, said: “Not only does the P50 support Heathrow’s sustainability objectives by reducing the asset cost base, it is also tightly aligned to our safety culture of getting everyone home safe.”
