From 2017 we offer to our clients solutions for protection of equipment from dust explosion (e.g. flour, sugar, grain or other types of explosible dust). There is well-know abbreviation called ATEX which stands for "ATmosphere EXplosible". At the same time, ATEX is known as the European Directive 2014/34/EC that regulates norms for explosion-proof electrical and mechanical equipment, components and protective systems. It came into force on 1 July 2003, and all new equipment and protective systems have been subject to it since that date. In 2018 we delivered several projects in which we supplied, installed and modified equipment with high risks of explosion of dust from flour and sugar. In 2019 we became official partner of RSBP s.r.o. and successfully delivered more projects for protection of equipment from explosion of sugar dust and coal dust. Our engineers are ready to offer most efficient explosion protection with competitive costs from RSBP s.r.o - https://www.rsbp.cz/.
We are ready to offer services of qualified engineers that can deliver engineering projects on short term contracts at agreed hourly-rate. They can work as field supervisor who supports Client’s project manager or project engineer, and coordinates activities on-site helping to reduce risks and insure reliable delivery of project milestones. Acting as representative and contact person from Client side, Viravix team supports and consults at each phase of project starting from planning, drafting of specification and P&IDs, selection of equipment, installation, commissioning and closing gaps. Professional support based on outsourcing insures that projects are delivered on-time and within the budget. Our engineers have positive feedback from international clients and local contractors.
Our engineers take care of supervision of dismantling and installation of equipment. Works are delivered based on «turn-key» approach with installation companies that have necessary licenses, qualified technicians, welders, fitters and tools that are required for high quality of installation works. Viravix takes care of overall project and takes full responsibility to the Client.
Our long-term partner Flow Service OÜ can provide installation services in Estonia, Baltic countries and other regions of Europe.
