Morello designed and manufactured an ATEX omnidirectional battery trolley certified for hazardous area Zone 1.
It will work on an FLNG in Australia.
As in every offshore platform the space is very narrow, that’s why this ATEX battery trolley is omnidirectional/multidirectional; it means that it can do any kind of steering: 90°, carousel (turn on itself), diagonal, compass, front steering, …
Furthermore this ATEX battery trolley has all wheels driven (8 wheels in total). Thanks to this feature this trolley can work in very harsh conditions, in fact grip is often a problem on FLNG due to the steel deck and to the ship pitch and roll.
All electrical component are ATEX (IECEx) certified and the minimum protection grade is IP 65.
This ATEX omnidirectional battery trolley is also equipped with a device that allow to disconnect the battery in ATEX Zone 1, in order to change it whenever is needed.
All bolts and nuts are in stainless steel and painting cycle is C5-M in order to protect the ATEX omnidirectional battery trolley by the high corrosion of environment in which it will work.
