Hochiki Europe wins Government funded project in Libya

Published:  14 March, 2011

Hochiki Europe, a manufacturer and supplier of fire detection and emergency lighting systems, has announced that its life safety products are to be installed throughout 16 government funded polyclinics in Libya.

Polyclinics are health care establishments that offer a wider range of services than a traditional doctor’s surgery, including x-rays, blood tests and minor operations. By making care more accessible, local and convenient, polyclinics usually avoid the need for patients to stay overnight.


Located in various sites across Libya, work on the 16 new build polyclinics is already underway and the project is due to be completed by the end of 2011.


Tripoli based Alarmtec is one of Libya’s leading fire detection installation companies and after taking part in a competitive tender, was awarded the contract for the installation work. Alarmtec’s managing director, Khalid Zwai, commented: “Alarmtec has specified Hochiki’s fire detection systems in a variety of locations throughout Libya over the last six years and we had no hesitation in recommending their use within these state-of-the-art polyclinics. We know that Hochiki’s solutions are reliable, innovative and backed-up with an unsurpassed level of service”.


Adhering to UK standards, Hochiki’s smoke detectors, heat sensors, call points, base sounders and sensor bases have already been installed utilising its Enhanced Systems Protocol (ESP). ESP is a total communications solution for intelligent fire detection and fully integrated systems. It has a multi-purpose structure that provides the flexibility and expansion to accommodate simple addressable systems through to integrated building management and safety systems.


Stuart Davies, Hochiki Europe’s Marketing Manager, commented:  “I would like to congratulate Alarmtec on this exciting project win and we look forward to working with them to ensure the safety of the patients who attend these polyclinics”.
