Share this content


Heineken Ireland has upgraded its fire protection system with Advanced fire panels and AdvancedLive remote monitoring. The new system is helping to reduce false alarms, improve safety and provide peace of mind for the brewery’s employees and customers.

The Heineken Cork Brewery was founded in 1856 and is one of the oldest breweries in Ireland. The brewery produces a variety of beers, including Heineken, Murphy’s Irish Stout and Kaliber. The brewery employs over 400 people and is a major tourist attraction in Cork.

The brewery’s previous fire protection system was nearing the end of its life and was no longer meeting the brewery’s needs. The new system, which was installed by TEE Fire Safety Solutions, includes seven Advanced MxPro 5 panels and 1,055 devices, including cutting-edge Hochiki Ekho wireless detectors. The system also includes Patol linear heat detection and Wagner air sampling equipment.

The new system is monitored remotely by AdvancedLive, which provides instant notification of fire events and allows for remote troubleshooting. The system has already helped to reduce false alarms by 50%.

“We are delighted with the new fire protection system,” said Enda Buckley, Commissioning Engineer at TEE Fire Safety Solutions. “The Advanced panels are easy to use and provide excellent protection for the brewery. The AdvancedLive remote monitoring system gives us peace of mind knowing that our fire system is always being monitored.”

“Heineken Cork is a great example of a business seeing real benefits from remote panel monitoring,” said Neil Parkin, Advanced Sales Manager for Ireland. “Not only have false alarms been reduced thanks to a system upgrade, when they do occur, they can now be dealt with quickly and with minimal disruption, without the expense of keeping a trained individual on site at all times.”

Advanced is a world leader in the development and manufacture of intelligent fire systems. The company’s products are used in locations around the world, from single-panel installations to large, multi-site networks. Advanced is owned by FTSE 100 company Halma PLC – a global group of life-saving technology companies.
