The installed components of the firewater system at Itoki include a firewater storage, firewater pumps and a distribution piping network along with hydrants and monitors.
Hydrocarbon handling facilities like the Itoki Natural Gas Receiving Station are not without inherent potentially disastrous hazards, including fire hazard. They therefore require adequate protection systems to contain or mitigate such hazards, hence the addition by WAPCo of yet another layer of protection.
Impact on Environment and Society
The system will ensure protection of life and property at the station and the surrounding community. It will prevent further spread of fire, which otherwise could have spill-over effects on the environment.
