he seminar will provide a unique opportunity to learn about IECEx and the benefits of using the System. It is for experts, senior staff and professionals from the mining and electrical sectors in African countries who are involved in the standardization, manufacturing, inspection, repair, exploitation, maintenance and overhaul of equipment, specifically in mines.
A pragmatic approach
Day one of the seminar will be devoted to the implementation of IEC International Standards and day two to a site inspection with practical exercises, report and explanation of findings
The seminar will focus on the three following International Standards:
- IEC 60079-10-1, Explosive atmospheres - Part 10-1: Classification of areas – Explosive gas atmospheres
- IEC 60079-10-2, Explosive atmospheres - Part 10-2: Classification of areas -Combustible dust atmospheres
- IEC 60079-17, Explosive atmospheres - Part 17: Electrical installations inspection and maintenance
The technical presentations will deal with daily problems participants are facing when using equipment in explosive atmospheres, including issues of area classification and the inspection and maintenance of electrical installations.
Sharing and networking
The seminar will be conducted in English and in French by two IECEx experts, Paul Meanwell (English group) Michel Brénon (French group), who will share their experience and knowledge, answer questions and provide advice, information and background material.
There will be two sessions, one in English and one in French, each of which will welcome 40 participants.
