Hytera Provides Explosion Proof Devices for Abu Dhabi Oil Company
The Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Oil Operations (ADCO) operates onshore and in shallow coastal water of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, one of the seven members of the United Arab Emirates which was established in 1971.
ADCO acts on behalf of its Shareholders to explore, develop and produce hydrocarbons within its area of operations.
The company produces mainly from six oil fields: Asab, Sahil, Shah, Bab, Buhasa and North-East Bab (Dabbiya, Rumaitha & Shanayel). It's one of the biggest Oil & Gas Exploration Cooperation in UAE.
It’s well known that in the Middle East Oil and Gas industry is one of the key industries among all economic source. The exploring and development of Oil and Gas have already developed into a completed industry chain and all related service and equipment require high level standard to avoid any possible personal and property loss, especially the electric equipemnt. Meanwhile as Oil and Gas Exploring is a highly integrated and complex industry asking for tight cooperation among all staff in the group, efficient communication will highly increase the productivity as well as safety. As the onshore and in shallow coastal water operator of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, ADCO requires a convenient and efficient communication solution which should meet th high explosion proof standard under the hydrocarbons environment.
Considering the Challenges above, ADCO proposed the following requirements for their communication solution:
1. Meet anti-explosion requirement to protect the staff safety.
2. Realize large range coverage in case of wide range accident notification.
3. "All call" Super Priority ensures everyone will receive the signals when accidents happen.
Considering ADCO’s high explosion proof safety standard, Hytera offers our TC-700EX FM certified intrinsically safety radio as the key equipment of their communication service. TC-700EX meets the Class I, II, III, Division 1, Group C to G, T3C standard. The intrinsically safe design of the electric board prvents the radio from igniting flammable gases or fuels and it will be extremely applicable for ADCO’s exploring environment.
Another big concern for ADCO is to protec the staff when dager happens. With TC-700EX multi safety assurance including mandown, lone worker and safety check, the staff and their teams can get the present tate of all working staff at the first time and it wil allow appropriate action to be taken without any delay which may damage the property or affect personal safety.
