Hazardous Areas

Hazardous Areas

Electrical work that is carried out in areas where potentially explosive atmospheres may be present, such as gases, vapours or combustible dusts, must be done in accordance with technical standards and strict safety guidelines. All Hersham Electrical Engineers are fully qualified electrical specialists who are extremely experienced in these areas, and our company has NICEIC Hazardous Areas Approval status.

In addition to our NICEIC Hazardous Areas Approval status, all staff members who work in hazardous areas have the appropriate CompEx qualifications. To learn more about CompEx feel free to take a look at their web site.

Installations that are recognised as hazardous areas, such as petrol stations, sewage pumping stations, are required to undertake routine electrical safety checks. We are able to provide fully qualified experts, who can visit your site and carry out an electrical safety inspection for you each year. They will then be able to advise you on any electrical maintenance work that needs to be carried out (if faults are detected), and provide you with your safety report when the task is complete.

We feel that the key to hazardous area work is providing industry recognised experts who are reliable, friendly and easy to work with. This is something we have been doing for over 26 years, so you can rest assured you are in safe hands. Feel free to call us for more information.

Petroleum Forecourts

Hersham Electrical Engineers have been providing a dedicated service to the petroleum forecourts on the Isle of Man since 1995 with expert knowledge of both the actual petroleum pumps and the other equipment associated on a retail forecourt such as car wash equipment including roll-over car washers, jet wash equipment and air inflation to the automatic tank gauging equipment.

Hersham Electrical Engineers can supply a range of forecourt equipment including the roll-over car & truck washers to coin operated jet wash and tyre inflation machines, also being able to carry out service repairs and continued maintenance regimes to ensure smooth operation for any site.

Hersham Electrical Engineers can also install LED canopy lighting to enhance the look of a site and to cut down on both running costs in electricity but also in relamping costs that can be expensive and inconvenient to a site due to poor lighting of the forecourt.

Hersham Electrical Engineers are also accredited installers of UPP pipework for petroleum installations and carry a large range of pipe and fittings to cover most island wide installations, also carry electrical ducting in the same UPP electrofusion welding system for dry duct installations on forecourts and other installations, take a look at some of the photos to see where UP pipework has been modified for replacement petrol pump installations.

As well as the retail forecourts Hersham Electrical Engineers have provided fuelling systems for the private and commercial operators with pumps, tanks, tank gauges, and fuelling management systems to enable owner/operators to keep track of the vehicle fuel consumption and prevention of fuel theft which is and expensive commodity to lose.
