A Greener Tomorrow: Awe-inspiring Sustainable Development Project in Halifax

Halifax Regional Municipality Organics Management Facility - Sustainable Development - Viking Fire Protection Inc.

Pairing Modern Sustainability with Viking Fire Protection Expertise

In the heart the Halifax Regional Municipality, encompassing more than 200 communities across nine distinct regions, an inspiring model of sustainable development is materializing for 2024.

The construction of a new organics management facility, engineered to process 60,000 tons of organic waste annually, will be a significant leap towards a greener, more environmentally conscious future.

In fact, it will meet, and exceed, the NS Environment and Climate Change 2010 Composting Facility Guidelines.

The new cutting-edge plant is strategically designed, and amongst its many modern eco-friendly features, the plant has a water negative system in place, which collects storm water from the site to be repurposed for fire protection.  In fact, this new “green” project has its own unique challenges regarding the vital aspects of fire safety.

That’s where Viking Fire Protection Inc. steps-in; we have the expertise to address these particular safety issues, to safeguard both the facility and its environmental mission.

Our complete range of fire protection services is tailored to safeguard not just property, but also the invaluable work and vision of organizations driving sustainability initiatives.
