Inspection, testing, installation and maintenance of hazardous area systems and equipment
The most effective way to establish the status of any equipment within hazardous areas is to carry out inspections for electrical assets in accordance with IEC 60079.
SEMIpower can provide these inspection services using our team of competent personnel working with hand held terminals. This experienced team can even carry out ‘hands on’ rectification of non-conformance. Although IEC 60079 suggests periods in which the cycle of inspection should be carried out, there are no two plants the same and these periods should be site specific and based on the outcome of a Risk Assessment which must be justified and recorded.
SEMIpower can assist in completing an initial risk assessment focused on the potential sources of ignition as described within EN 1127-1 and carry out assessments in a manner that adopts the methodology as identified in EN 13463-1
