Greenmount fans have successfully negotiated an order for 600 Heavy Duty ATEX compliant fans, suitable for offshore applications, in Dubai U.A.E. Mr. Garrick Hirst, the chief HVAC and electrical engineer on the project, stated ‘ We have been trying to source a fan supplier who can provide a quality unit to suit the arduous applications that our products will be used in. Greenmount made a number of visits to Dubai, to discuss in person our particular requirements in this area. The unit they have designed is constructed of a heavy gauge Stainless Steel, is suitable for single phase supply at either 50 or 60 Hz and is supplied with full ATEX certification and CE markings. No other fan manufacturer we contacted could fulfill all our design criteria and provide the relevant ATEX documentation that is now the standard in this field.’
Mr Stephen Nicholson, Managing Director of Greenmount fans commented ‘Greenmount have supplied many fans for industrial applications within the region, and our sister company, Metrico International is well recognized within the construction industry. It is good to see that the European ATEX directive is now been seen as the standard to be adhered to wherever there is a hazardous environment. Safety and reliability are paramount within the petrochemical industry.
