Biomass Producer Continues Working Relationship with MJW for Fire Protection at New Facility

Fire Protection Systems Fire Alarm Systems Biomass and Alternate Energy

In June of 2023, MJW’s long-time client Enviva Biomass reached out to request a quote for construction of a fire protection system throughout their Amory MS manufacturing facility that was being reconstructed due to catastrophic damage caused by a tornado earlier in 2023. The scope of work was challenging as Enviva was only able to build three “Big Top” fabric structures instead of a typical steel structure building. MJW designers had to get creative with respect to locating and supporting the weight of all fire protection and fire alarm system equipment from the Big Top’s unique structural framing, while assuring the system’s full operational capabilities.

The installation consisted of new automatic sprinkler and alarm systems within the three large Big Top structures, new fire pump and required fire water supply and distribution piping, and a new fire alarm control panel inside of the operators’ control rooms. Though the workload was extensive and required a meticulous eye to detail, the project was completed successfully on time and on budget.
