AQUARIUZ WOW SERVICES SUPPORTING WELLS FARGO FOR A SMOOTH TRANSITION AT EMBASSY TECHVILLAGE At 4:45 am on Saturday, 5th Sep 15 the shift engineer at Block 1.6 (Embassy TechZone, Pune), currently occupied by ‘Atos India Private Limited’ received a call requesting support to extinguish a fire in the pantry on the second floor. The engineer on duty quickly alerted the duty electrician and switched off the AHU for that floor. Upon reaching the floor it was found that the fire was extinguished but the area was completely filled with thick smoke being emitted from the overheated oil which was the reason for the fire. The security team from Atos had informed the Hinjewadi Fire Brigade at 4:50 am. Being a weekend, Atos had limited staff. The Embassy Services staff guided the fire brigade to the scene of the fire. They also provided them with detailed floor plans. The fire team then thoroughly searched the floor for any possible traces of fire and advised for smoke clearance. By this time smoke had completely filled the entire floor and was quite rapidly spreading to the other floors. Realising the gravity of the situation, the Embassy Services team evacuated the 500 odd employees working on the floor at that time. Fire officials had advised for smoke clearance which was becoming a major hurdle as the façade had limited openable windows. An extra façade on the floor was broken for faster smoke clearance. Rising temperatures in adjacent areas on the floor had resulted in the melting of “Honestly it was a remarkable job and the same couldn't have been made possible without the hard work of you and your team. It was not an easy task to replace the H.T VCB in a single day along with the Hi-POT test. Great Job!! We really appreciate the fact, that things moved smoothly despite your team being quite busy with the rectification process, coupled with constant calls from me to understand the situation and discuss back-up plans to provide the power without any major hiccups. The response was really very positive and supportive.” Naveen Kumar Chaubey Project Lead, Flipkart “The Facility Management and Security teams here in Embassy TechVillage are a class apart. The enthusiasm and energy with which they respond to any request is very reassuring. We had made small requests to them during the fit-out stage of Incubation 1 and the speed with which they responded and got the job done was commendable. Nagaraj Naik and Murugan from the facilities team and Manjunath and Raghavendra from security require a special mention for the manner in which they have taken on and completed every request from us. They have set the bar really high for others.” Col.
