The Egyptian Museum in Turin, Italy, houses one of the largest collections of Egyptian antiquities with more than 30.000 artefacts and was founded in 1824, being the world's oldest Egyptian Museum. The Museum shares a building complex with the historical archive of the Accademia delle Scienze. FOGTEC technology is protecting both the Egyptian museum and the archive by one centralized high pressure pump unit. Depending on the requirements for the protected areas, open and automatic nozzles have been installed.
Cevahir located in the Şişli district is one of the world´s largest shopping Malls. Emergency power supply for this shopping mall is realized by 6 generator sets. Due to the size of some generator rooms the fire fighting protection concept by HPWM is based on an object protection in these rooms. Fire spread is avoided by releasing all nozzles in one room at the same time. All 6 protection areas are supplied by one central pump unit.
