Sembcorp Utilities UK is a major industrial energy, utilities and services provider to international process industry companies.

FEG Designed, Supplied, Installed and Commission a ventilation system to ensure desired ATEX classification for the area. ATEX is the name commonly given to the two European Directives for controlling explosive atmospheres.

The project included ensuring equipment was suitable for the potentially explosive content of the vented air and locating duty/standby fans on the building roof. Installation contractors had to be managed whilst the plant owner had contractors on site carrying out major works, without affecting the overall programme of the plant owner.

There were significant design constraints due to the array of pipework and steelwork, involved 3D modelling the facility. FEG also incorporated a duty/standby facility to ensure the system would not go off-line due to equipment failure.
