ATEX Explosion-Proof Vehicles for the Oil&Gas Industry and more
For several years now Alke' has already been supplying the Oil&Gas industry with explosion-proof vehicles, however lately the leading companies in the sector have demonstrated the need to raise overall safety levels within their manufacturing and extraction facilities and, at the same time, to maximise the operational performance of their internal logistics Alke' electric vehicles with explosion-proof certification (ATEX, UL/NEC, IECEx) are the most qualified products from this point of view. It is no coincidence that, in various situations, Alke' direct consultation was requested by the top management of major international oil companies in order to understand how to best establish logistical solutions for areas at risk of explosion using Alkè's explosion-proof electric vehicles.
Explosion-Proof Applications - The Various Solutions Available
Alke' explosion-proof vehicles are available with 2 or 4 seat cabs and with various configurations. These vehicles are often customised to meet the specific requirements of the individual end users (e.g. special loading area configurations, special lighting solutions, like headlights for nocturnal surveillance activities, emergency ambulance configurations, solutions for transporting special equipment or materials, explosion and fire proof vehicles, etc.). The most popular solutions currently being requested are those which are certified according to the ATEX regulations for use in zone 2 (3G IIB T3) and zone 1 (2G IIB T3). The latter are becoming increasingly popular, as they provide for greater safety and flexibility (in fact, explosion proof electric vehicles certified for use in zone 1 can also be used in zone 2, but not vice versa). Furthermore, upon request Alke' is able to develop special configurations for specific applications or sectors like the subsoil (ATEX M2) or environments in which explosive materials are present (for example ammunition and products for fireworks - IP 4X and IP 5X).
