Working with a global leader in marine terminals and single-point mooring systems to to design and build low and medium voltage Ex e enclosures

 
Project brief:
  • To design and engineer IECEx certified, increased safety (Ex e) enclosures for low and medium voltage connectivity for offshore tower yoke mooring systems.
Challenges:
  • Develop a standard enclosure design that can be universal for either Low Voltage or Medium Voltage application.
  • Internal components have significant weight, so chassis plates or mounting panels to be reinforced/strengthened. 
  • Due to the weight, it would be required for the internal chassis plates or mounting panels to be installed through removeable panel in the top of the enclosure.
  • Epoxy coating on interior and exterior surfaces of the enclosures to insure protection against environmental conditions of installation.
  • Requirement to use Ex e rated components to ensure apparatus or assembly certification to IECEx codes and standards.
Outcome:
  • IECEx approved, IP66 enclosure with innovative design features to suit the exacting requirements
  • Custom internal chassis plates for Ex e components.
  • Environmental epoxy coating as per project specifications.
  • Certification: IECEx zone 1
