A resort in the Maldives is among the latest locations to have installed life safety systems from the UK manufacturer C-TEC.
Formerly a melon plantation, Velaa Private Island has 47 guest villas, a Michelin starred restaurant, nine-hole golf course and a private submarine. It offers diving and dolphin watching and includes a turtle conservation area.
As the island regularly sees monsoon storms and winds, and is reliant on diesel generators rather than mains, C-TEC’s EN54-certified switch-mode power supplies are in use for powering the life safety systems. With deep discharge battery protection and EN54 compliant reporting of battery impedance faults, the BF362-5 units are supplied in metal boxes and include single-pole volt-free changeover relays that switch for any fault condition.
Filip Langer, MD of Avalon, the Prague-based fire protection company that was the installer on the project, said: “Avalon has a wealth of expert knowledge and experience of complex life-safety installations and we were delighted to be chosen for such an impressive project. We specified C-TEC’s power supplies as they are renowned for their reliability, energy efficiency and for delivering high performance input voltage in any environment.”
