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 machine, our customer is adding to their fleet. We are delighted to have received an order for another ATEX Zone 2-rated vacuum unit which complies with DNV Standard for Certification 2.7-2.

The DNV 2.7-2 standard for offshore service modules stipulates a range of safety measures which 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 vacuum unit from our MultiVac range is rated up to 24” Hg (810 mbar) and up to 2,270 cfm (3,856m3/hr). 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.
