CompEx (meaning Competency in Ex atmospheres) is a global certification scheme for electrical and mechanical practitioners and designers working in potentially explosive atmospheres. ATEC offers Hazardous Area Training in Houston, Singapore and Dubai, and the exciting addition of Myanmar is in line with the group’s goals as a truly Global Ex Products, Training & Services provider.
Since 2012, ATEC has conducted hazardous area equipment inspections & serviced products from our Singapore hub. Partnering with Uniteam for Hazloc / Hazardous Area training is the ultimate offering demanded by our clients.
Myanmar government opened up the rights to explore the bulk of its offshore reserves last year to the Oil & Gas Majors. With 19-Deep and 11-Shallow water blocks, it was one of the most eagerly awaited events to explore some of the most promising waters in Asia, if not the world. Companies operating in the region require local and fast delivery support, an offering that the group now provides.
ATEC Group continues to pursue new regions and offers a full range of Electrical Cables, Hazardous Area Accessories, Ex Inspections, Training, Engineering & Commissioning services to stay ahead of the curve in the current global climate.
CompEx Ex12 Application Design Engineer course is also a new offering being delivered at all ATEC centers as of June 2015.
