Repeat order for an offshore, DNV 2.7-2 vacuum unit

9th Sep 2021

Following five successful years of offshore vacuum operations with a Calder MultiVac, our customer has added to their fleet. We are delighted to receive an order for another offshore DNV 2.7-2 vacuum unit. This unit is ATEX Zone 2-rated and will comply with DNV Standard for Certification 2.7-2.

The DNV 2.7-2 standard for offshore service modules stipulates a range of safety measures. These provide even greater protection for both the equipment and the offshore environment in which it operates. Among the requirements are: lockable doors when closed with fire resistant seals; integral gas detector; portable fire extinguisher system; power safe in the event of a failure, and externally accessible fuel shut-off valve.

This offshore DNV 2.7-2 vacuum is rated up to 24” Hg (810 mbar) and up to 2,270 cfm (3,856m3/hr). It is from our MultiVac range of hazardous area vacuums. Our equipment is ideal for the harsh conditions of the offshore Canadian waters in which this unit will operate.

See why our standard and bespoke vacuum units are ideal for hazardous area operations.
