Klinge Corp displays refrigerated containers at Oil & Gas UK safety event

25 June 2013

Klinge Corporation presented its offshore transport refrigerated containers at Oil & Gas UK's Piper 25 event in Aberdeen, Scotland, from June 18-20, 2013. The company featured its ATEX Directive-compliant offshore refrigerated containers used in the oil and gas industry because of their ultra-safe, explosion-proof design.

Oil & Gas UK supports the industry in the long-term by raising awareness of the trade, encouraging communication across all divisions of the industry, and establishing initiatives and programs.

The main focus of the Piper 25 conference was oil and gas industry safety. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Piper Alpha disaster, when a North Sea oil production platform exploded in 1988, killing 167 people. Conference presentations included lessons learned from the tragic explosion, safety management systems, and hazard management.

The ATEX Directive contains minimum requirements for improving safety and health protection of workers potentially at risk from explosive atmospheres. ATEX Directive 94/9/EC pertains to equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.

Klinge’s offshore equipment is explosion-proof and comes in models suitable for Zone 1 and Zone 2 hazardous locations. The offshore refrigerated containers are available certified to DNV 2.7-1. These containers are subject to many more regulations and must undergo a strict certification process to ensure safety of personnel working on oil rigs and oil tankers, as well as the environment.
