In order to shortcut the Hazardous Area Compliance at more projects, we looked for one engineer having sufficient knowledge possibly in more areas. Even if all are related to ATEX, but we did believe to have some small differencies, and we found via ATEXdb.eu. Thanks for it!
After 5 years of working as EEHA (Electrical equipment in hazardous areas) inspector, I can definitely say the Ex knowledge not only mandatory as a type of quality assurance, it is also vital for preventing future breakdowns and catastrophic failures
Since 2002, after I had started working as electrical engineer in both oil and gas fields, there was a necessity to be familiar with this vital knowledge. Day by day, the matter changed to the need for professionality in dealing with EX equipment's in hazardous atmospheres. I like this field.
