Astana Logistics Centre, Kazakhstan

Kazakhstan has been at the centre of international logistics ever since the times of the famous Silk Road more than 2,000 years ago, part of which is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


Kazak Transport Company LLP Continental Logistics is creating a network of transportation and logistics centres across Kazakhstan and central Asia. One of its first major complexes was built in the capital city, Astana, to provide warehousing and logistics services – from export and import to national distribution services.

The 51 hectare logistics centre has a dry warehouse, climate controlled depot, container yard and a shopping centre. An office complex and hotel will also be added to the site. Having won the contract to design and install the fire safety system, Asia Techno Complect chose Apollo Discovery fire detectors and sounders, and Kentec panels as the best products for the project.

The Solution

Divided into 35 fire zones, 1,400 smoke and heat detectors and 12 panels were successfully installed. Modular interfaces controlled the alarm signals, suppression systems and the building ventilation in the event of a fire, and Apollo addressable beam detectors were used to protect the vast open spaces of the logistics centre.

In such an important international logistics hub, it was vital that the chosen fire protection system complied with international standards. Easy to install with proven reliability, Apollo Discovery fire detectors were the ideal choice.
