Primetech has been selected by C-COM of Canada as its first European Authorised Service Centre. Authorised Service Centres must meet a number of very strict requirements. They must have at least 12 months minimum proven experience supporting and installing iNetVu satellite systems. They are also required to maintain a comprehensive local inventory of spare parts, and staff must have completed iNetVu training courses. With over 10 years of support for C-COM satellite systems in the UK and throughout Europe, Primetech has fulfilled these criteria many times over.
New state-of--the-art firefighting equipment, supplied and integrated by Primetech, which uses a high-pressure hose to blast straight through brick walls and tackle major blazes on the other side, has now been taken into service and launched by Cumbria FRS.
Firefighters using infra-red technology can identify the location of a fire inside a building. The Cobra unit on the Rapid Response Tactical Vehicle then shoots an ultra-powerful jet of water loaded with an abrasive cutting substance to blast a thumbnail-sized hole in the wall. Water is then injected through the hole as a high-pressure mist to absorb the heat and gases from the fire.
