Utilities - Coal Fired Power Station

4 Square provided an area classification analysis to enable the client to safely upgrade the conveyor system at the power station to handle the environmentally friendly biomass product on the conveyors in addition to coal.

The consultancy services provided included detailed analysis of the whole transportation system from material receipt through to the hopper loading area in the heart of the power station.

An area classification study was carried out taking into account the proposed modifications to the conveyor systems. The modifications to the system involved changes in the materials being handled in addition to the additional equipment to be installed to handle the new biomass material. The hazardous area classification study report provided enabled a clear and unambiguous equipment specification to be created with which to formalise the specification of the conveyor and dust extraction and conveyor spraying equipment.

The equipment inspection and process analysis carried out on site also identified several low cost improvements that could be implemented to significantly reduce risk in the process system.
