SA POWERNET ATEX product with a black background

Dependable, uninterrupted and most importantly safe power distribution is fundamental in allowing companies across every industry to operate efficiently without any difficulties. In the oil and gas industry application failures can be disastrous, therefore the highest quality of equipment is required to safeguard your companies’ most important assets - your people. It is a requirement for oil rigs to have an uninterrupted power supply for a number of safety reasons.

SA Equip heat, light and ventilation products are dependent on a reliable source of power, therefore developing a range of EX certified power distribution products was an obvious decision. Our core range of ATEX Power products include a Mains Distribution Unit, 3.8KVA and 400VA Transformers, Splitter Box, Extension reels and leads.

Commitment to working closely with our clients to develop in-demand ATEX equipment, provision of expert client support and delivery of market-leading reliable equipment globally where and when you need it, are all part of our value to under promise and over deliver.

Our portable Powernet range was designed in close cooperation with our end users who were frustrated with the challenges presented by standard ATEX approved power equipment – heavy, bulky kit that was highly prone to breakages. With the instability of oil prices across markets, companies are continually looking for ways to reduce their operational costs whilst maintaining the upmost level of safety in work environments. Practicality and efficiency of our products are at the heart of our product development process – to increase their durability and performance in extreme conditions. Products in our range, including our MDU eliminate the need for a hot-work permit or standby man and provide a more advanced range of power supply options.

SA Equip Powernet transformers, splitter units, extension reels and MDU are available in any configuration and provide a range of practical benefits including shock absorbers, full fuse protection and integrated carry handles. The 3.8KVA Transformer, our latest addition to the Powernet family is a product of many painstaking hours of development resulting in a highly durable, compact unit which can deliver power safely wherever you need it.

One of our long standing clients said “SA Powernet is a great design, we experience very few damages however long they have been offshore, and we won’t use anything else.”
