A large multi-campus Victorian client had experienced a fire services diesel fuel pump failure where the pump was called to start on a weekend due to a fault in the system. The nature of the fault did not call the fire brigade and as a result, no one knew the pump was in operation. As there was no means of identifying the pump was operating all diesel fuel reserves held in the pumps tanks the pump completely depleted. This resulted in a significant failure of the pump and a replacement be installed – a several thousand-dollar exercise.

The client looked at several options, including running a signal to the BMS which was an extremely costly exercise due to the location of the pump.

Hirotec was able to install our wireless HiroLytics solution incorporating a fuel level sensor in the pumps tank. Trigger alarms via SMS and Email were set at 75% full mark (per AS1851:2012) and a second alert trigger at 50% full.

Additionally, both the client and Hirotec can remotely monitor fuel level via a web-based dashboard identifying any fuel depletion spikes which may warrant further investigation.

Hirotec recently assisted a local Canberra client by installing a 700kW temporary chiller to support a critical facility over summer. Our team worked through the heat and to a tight deadline, achieving a great outcome for our client. Well done to all involved.

For over 15 years, Hirotec has provided solutions and maintenance service to our business partner, the National Australia Bank (NAB). We recently completed one of these solutions at NAB’s Bega NSW Branch.  

The existing bank is an original 1900’s build, where the original air conditioning installation of over 25 years ago was based on a smaller area with an open plan arrangement. We identified that the existing system had passed its life cycle and required replacement to achieve better performance and comfort conditions along with lower running costs. 

Our project team conducted a full site review and assessment, identifying that the existing system was also under sized by approximately 8kW, and selected a larger Actron Split Ducted System to complete the upgrade. Our Canberra team completed the majority of the decommission, removal and installation of the new system long with the local support of electrical contractors, rigging companies and waste management.  

Hirotec will continue to provide complete end to end design, engineering, installation and maintenance solutions for our national clients.

Thank you to NAB and the local Bega business partners.
