The World's First 2-Pole 13.8KV Non-Sparking Generator For Use In Hazardous Areas

Setting new industry standards for power generation equipment in hazardous environments.

The BRUSH Group are proud to announce this ground-breaking technological advancement with the official issue of the first in a new series of White Papers, detailing the development and new industry standards surrounding the world’s first Non-sparking 2-pole generator. This application-led solution reduces procurement, operation and maintenance costs on generators and associated equipment installed in explosive environments.

Launched at the FPSO World Congress event by Roy Beardshaw, BRUSH’s Head of Engineering, the paper details the current industry standards and how this exciting new development can change the use of power generation equipment in hazardous areas.

Chris Abbott, CEO of BRUSH commented “The innovation that BRUSH has made with the non-sparking high voltage generator truly leads to a step change in the operational flexibility and cost for power generation units in hazardous environments.”

The paper focusses on the limitations of the current industry approach and how this innovative solution not only brings exceptional safety levels, but also offers operators significantly lower running, maintenance and ownership costs.

The intelligent, new BRUSH 13.8kV 2-pole generator design has gained independent approval and been classed as non-sparking for Zone IIA and IIB gas applications. These are typical operating environments on the open deck of oil rigs, FPSO’s (Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading) vessels and many chemical processing plants.
