OME Motors Brings An Explosion-proof ATEX Motor to Libya
Client: Harouge Raffinery.
Project: ATEX Explosion Proof motor
Specifics: OMEX series; 420 Kw; 2 poles; 10,000 volts In 2016, OME Motors built an ATEX-certified explosion-proof motor from the OMEX series for the pumping station application for Harouge Oil Operations, a Libyan refinery. A special feature of this project, in addition to the motor created with professionalism and competence by OME Motors, was the political and social situation in which it was contextualized: Libya in those years was at the center of a civil war; any move was difficult and risky, for this reason the transfer of the explosion-proof motor was accompanied by an armed convoy, which carried it with maximum safety to its destination.
