What We Do

For over 30 years, Woodward Group has continually developed and improved our knowledge base and operational systems. We always strive to minimise risk through providing safe, professional hazardous area electrical services.

We understand that many companies do not have the necessary in-house expertise to ensure hazardous area electrical design, installation and inspections adhere to ATEX 137 and DSEAR (The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulation) directives, which address safety where there is danger from potentially explosive materials. This is where we can help.

Our ATEX experts can deliver hazardous area electrical services for customers across a wide range of industries, including:

  • Chemical
  • Steel
  • Oil and gas
  • Petro-chemical
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Storage warehousing facilities
  • Heavy engineering industries

How We Do It

Our team of hazardous area ATEX specialists are experienced in the installation and maintenance of ‘ex’ rated equipment for blue-chip companies. We primarily work at sites that fall under the COMAH regulations. These regulations ensure that businesses take all necessary measures to prevent major accidents involving dangerous substances and limit the consequences of any major accidents which occur.
Our extensive knowledge and valuable experience enables us to develop cost effective and cutting edge solutions that offer greater efficiency and productivity for a wide and varied range of customer applications. We always deliver projects on time and within budget.

Oil and gas

Workers in the oil and gas industry regularly operate in hazardous environments that are highly infused with combustible components, such as gases, mists, vapours or flammable dusts. With a certain level of concentration of these substances in the atmosphere, a source of ignition may be all that is needed to cause an explosion.

Woodward Group is certified to provide hazardous area electrical services in the oil and gas industry, which we always carry out in accordance with CompEx best practice.

Petrochemical

Petrochemicals (sometimes referred to as petchems) are the chemical products obtained from petroleum by refining, used in many common products like gasoline, cosmetics, fertilisers, fabrics and plastics. However, the toxic chemicals in the petrochemical industry can have numerous environmental, health and safety hazards, including process hazards like leaks, equipment malfunction or corrosion, and explosive atmospheres. As such, safety is paramount in the sector.

Woodward Group provides electrical services for the petrochemical sector that fully comply with ATEX safety regulations, with our team equipped with necessary knowledge and protection to handle any unsafe situations they encounter.

Chemical and pharmaceutical

A large number of inflammable materials are regularly used in the chemical and pharmaceutical sectors, which means the risk of creating an explosive atmosphere is very high. Organisations working in such environments have strict regulations that they must adhere to.

As a CompEx qualified service provider, Woodward Group can offer our customers in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries optimum solutions to suit their individual requirements and uphold all quality and safety standards. Our team is well equipped and has the specialist expertise and experience to face any challenge your organisation is facing head on.
