Fire prevention and protection: In the existing Aeroflot hangar of the Irkutsk airport ELCON could demonstrate flexibility and problem-solving competence. This huge facility had to be equipped with state-of-the-art fire alarm and fire extinguishing systems. The problem was that the water reservoir was 800 meters away from the hangar, so adequate pipe heating had to be included to prevent the water from freezing on its way to the scene.
