ATEX IECEx LED Rechargeable Mini Worklite | Wolf WL-50
WOLF WL-50 MINI WORKLITE
When the operators of one of a major oil company’s North Sea oil rigs needed to safely illuminate some of the darkest, most difficult hazardous areas on board the platform they came to Wolf Safety Lamp to solve the problem.
Wolf’s ATEX LED Rechargeable Mini Worklite successfully solves the problem of illuminating dark, difficult-to-access spaces on board North Sea oil rigs.
With only a 440V power supply being available on the rig, operators needed a lightweight, battery powered ATEX Zone 1 certified lamp. It had to be bright enough to illuminate the work areas, and sufficiently lightweight to move around the platform easily. The battery duration should be long enough for the light to work for a full shift, and the recharge time should be no more than eight hours.
The lights currently being used were not bright enough, and were too heavy for operators to easily move around the rig.
It was clear to everybody that a new solution was needed so Wolf Safety was approached to provide a solution.
Just weeks after the first contact David Lyon, Wolf’s Sales Manager (Scotland), made a presentation to 5 of the oil company’s key decision makers who agreed to recommend the new WL-50 ATEX LED Mini Worklite™ to their Oil & Gas Maintenance Contractor for trials on one of their North Sea platforms.
A few weeks after that, and following a product demonstration to 7 of the contractor’s key personnel, details for an offshore trial were agreed by all parties.
The month long trial was highly successful, with the work light being very well received by both the contractor and the operator.
Operators on a North Sea oil rig were delighted with the performance of the WL-50 ATEX/IECEx LED Mini Worlkite™ during recent trials.
