HAZARDOUS AREAS COMPLIANCE

HMAS Stirling, Garden Island WA & RAAF Pearce, Bullsbrook WA

EIG were engaged to inspect, design and rectify electrical installations across multiple Australian Defence Force sites. This included detailed grade inspections of existing explosion protected equipment within hazardous areas, compilation of inspection reports and surveys noting any non-conformances.

EIG replaced multiple systems including hazardous compliant control systems, fire systems, distribution boards, lighting, power and earthing systems. Hazardous Area Verification Dossiers were then created for all hazardous areas.

Our specialist team were able to quickly adapt to all the individual requirements they were confronted with when working in such niche and high-risk environments.

Working closely together with the client, EIG Australia helped in achieving substantial cost-savings by adjusting both the types of hazardous substances being utilised and how they are stored. These changes resulted in greatly reduced outlay costs, future maintenance expenses, and most importantly the reduced size of the overall hazardous area footprint on the defence bases.
