ABB, Ex facilities for hazardous area motors

ABB has become the first manufacturer in the world to receive certification for its qualification programme of service facilities for hazardous area motors. The certificate has been granted by the leading French certification body for the electrical and electronics sectors, BV-LCIE.

This allows ABB to issue certificates of authorisation to Ex workshops or repair facilities that comply with ABB’s qualification programme, which includes the strict requirements of IEC/EN 60079-19 and ATEX Directive 94/9/EC.

An ABB certificate of authorisation means that the certified workshop is qualified to operate under ABB’s responsibility. It confirms that the workshop has been audited by ABB, guaranteeing that ABB Ex motors repaired or overhauled there are safe. The original ABB declaration of conformity for the motor will remain valid.

ABB’s Ex repair shop qualification programme gives end-users added confidence that their ABB Ex motors will continue to comply with Directive 94/9/EC or relevant Ex IEC standard requirements after repair by one of the ABB certified facilities.
