Petróleos Mexicanos (PEMEX) is the biggest enterprise in Mexico and South America.
PROBLEM: For a new oil extraction facilities they needed all the enclosures, elements and components to be covered by the ATEX normative. They requested special outdoor enclosures for areas with a high corrosion level destined for marine environments, under American norms UL Nema 4x & NFPA496 and pressurized Atex. An unusual combination of certifications.
MAIN CHALLENGES OF THE INSTALLATION:
A sea rig with restricted access.
Assurance that both, enclosure and components, were covered by Atex rules.
Project integration with existing systems.
ATEX DELVALLE’ SOLUTION: The solution was to bring our enclosure line Peppex, pressurized manufactured with a 2000x1600x500mm measurements. We are the only manufacturer to perform these dimensions fitted to the standards UL Nema 4x, INOX 316L pressurized
CHARACTERISTICS THAT MARKED ITS DECISION FOR ATEX DELVALLE:
Short implementation time.
Scheme of certifications appropriate to their needs.
