Surveys of electrical systems within hazardous areas onboard operational and new building MODU’s, this is completed by qualified Compex inspectors to IEC and API standards. The Eex register is compiled for individual Eex fittings each being photographed with position mapped for initial remedial work, future surveys and monthly maintenance requirements..
On operational rigs the Group are able to use the vessels existing Eex register and the hazardous area zone drawing to inspect all items which should be classified as Eex. Through this the inspectors look for the correct zone rating, correct installation of equipment, correct labelling and tagging, any existing damage to the equipment, equipment installation in the incorrect zone or not on the register, likewise for equipment on the register which has since been removed.
From here, our team are able to draw up a new register or amend the existing to display all findings.
Furthermore the drawing of a schedule to highlight faults found, including a recommended course of action to rectify the same. All work scopes are carried out by qualified Compex Inspectors.
New Build Rigs
In terms of new build rigs Harris Pye Engineering work in conjunction with shipyards on the as-built BOM and hazardous area zone drawings. From here the teams are able to inspect all equipment within the defined hazardous areas as previously mentioned. The inspectors then records any faults in order for corrective measures to be implemented, whilst simultaneously providing a detailed schedule or for all equipment inspected specifying the manufacturer, model, zone rating, zone class where equipment is installed, serial number, gas group, temperature group, certifying authority and their reference number. Alongside the listed information, each piece of equipment will have a photograph included for reference. In conjunction a set of gridded drawings will be made, to show individual pieces of equipment and their locations.
