We are proud to announce that BTS Yangin has been awarded the contract for Linear Heat Detection (LHD) for the Gaziray metro project using the Bandweaver FireLaser DTS systems.

Levent Ceylan, Managing Director of BTS Yangin commented, “this is a fantastic, high profile project to be awarded and is a great addition to our extensive portfolio of railway tunnel monitoring projects using fiber optic LHD systems. Gaziray is a major project with an anticipated capacity of 100 thousand passengers per day and represents a total investment of more than $1.5 billion dollars.”

Richard Kluth, Managing Director of Bandweaver Technology Ltd said, “ This is a great contract win for BTS. The FireLaser DTS systems used for this project provide coverage for 20km of rail and assets and will provide protection across 4 underground stations.  BTS Yangin is a great partner and the leading supplier of fiber optic LHD systems in Turkey”

About FireLaser

FireLaser V3FireLaser is a Linear Heat Detector System specifically designed for use in Special Hazard fire detection applications.

The FireLaser Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) system connects to a distributed fiber optic cable (FireFiber). It determines temperature and distance data at thousands of points along the length of the cable. The fiber optic cable is installed within the asset to be protected and this cable acts as the sensing element. The FireLaser Sensor Control Unit is responsible for generating alarms based upon the calculated temperature profile. The FireLaser DTS can therefore detect the location of a hot spot on up to a 5km length of fiber optic cable with unrivaled precision. The system is able to monitor the movement of the hot spot, or multiple hot spots, in terms of physical position, temperature and also in real-time. FireLaser Distributed Temperature Sensing Technology provides a line type heat detector solution vastly superior to conventional copper based or multipoint heat detector.
