Public Address and Warning System in Napier Port, Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand

Safety precautions are a core component of increased security awareness. Industries are increasingly starting to perceive it as an essential part of their business existence.  Modern siren PA systems have become an integral part of the corporate DNA landscape. We would like to thank the New Zealand Napier Port for trusting us with the design of a viable and effective solution. We are proud of the fact that the Pavian sirens can now stand guard to protect people’s lives in the area.

In November 2019, Napier Port installed its Port-wide Emergency Warning System (PEWS). The system consists of six Pavian electronic sirens, the OCP16 control panel, and two additional Screamer CAR electronic sirens.

“The Napier Port Emergency Warning System (PEWS) is intended to alert people at Napier Port to local hazards and provide incident-specific emergency instructions.  As a lifeline utility, it is also vital that we are able to function as fully as possible during and after an emergency for our customers and our region.  Our Port Emergency Warning System (PEWS) can be targeted to areas affected by serious hazards, and will only be activated when there is a serious threat to life, health, or property, and, on a weekly basis every Tuesday at midday for test purposes”.
