EnerMech's Equipment Rental division has strengthened its rental fleet with a £700,000 investment in acquiring four containerised Zone 2 ATEX 95 compliant 1050cfm/150psi air compressors.
The 300 horsepower Cummings diesel-powered machines conform to all current industry standards for safe operation and protection of diesel engines operating within open deck hazardous areas, including ATEX and OMCA MEC1.
The air compressors offer free air delivery of 1050cfm (29.7m3/min) at 150psi (10.3bar) and are housed within fully sound proofed DNV 2.7-1 offshore containers, with ISO corner blocks for ease of transportation and to aid safe container stacking.
EnerMech Equipment Rental Manager, Marc Gerrard, said: "During routine planned maintenance, service support or partial plant shutdown operations at onshore facilities, offshore installations and FPSO vessels, the use of certified Zone rated equipment remains a prerequisite.
"Reliability is the key to safe and successful operations which is what we strive to provide. This substantial investment in the most modern Zone 2 air compressors available underlines our commitment to safety and to providing clients with the best equipment the market has to offer."
