October 22, 2019
Breathe Safety awarded £2.0m contract to deploy G7c gas detectors with a five-year service agreement
Colchester, United Kingdom — The third of twelve major water and sewerage authorities in the United Kingdom has awarded a £2.0m contract for Blackline Safety’s (TSX.V: BLN) G7c connected gas detection wearables with a five-year G7 Insight service plan. G7c products and services will be deployed through Blackline’s authorised distributor, Breathe Safety.
“Breathe Safety are very pleased to have been chosen again to implement the roll out of the G7 to a major water company, underlining the value of a service provider to assist in delivering major projects such as these,” said Luke Mitchell, Business Development Manager at Breathe Safety.
“G7c wearables will help to keep utilities personnel safe while they deliver clean drinking water to homes and businesses,” said Mark Haylett, Area Sales Manager at Blackline Safety Europe. “Having won all three major UK water and sewerage contracts tendered this year, G7c has proven to deliver an unbeatable combination of features and capabilities far superior to competitor offerings.”
To monitor the atmosphere for gas-based hazards, each G7c will be deployed with a cartridge featuring one, three or four gas sensors, including oxygen, ozone, chlorine and hydrogen sulphide. Automating regulatory compliance reporting, every gas reading, gas sensor bump test and calibration is automatically uploaded to the Blackline Safety Cloud for storage, reporting and visualisation within Blackline Analytics software.
Every G7c wearable under this contract will also be field upgradeable, providing the option of real-time safety services for lone worker monitoring and productivity, including fall and no-motion detection, an SOS latch, two-way voice calling and messaging, 24/7 live monitoring and push-to-talk that turns G7c into a walkie-talkie.
