Mumbai, 20th Dec 2010– Abhisam Software reports that the recently held Hazardous Area Instrumentation intensive training workshop in Mumbai on 3rd Dec 2010 was a huge success.
A spokesperson for Abhisam Software informed us that over 75 people comprising of engineers, as well as senior C level executives from various Indian and International companies enthusiastically participated in the event, held at Mumbai’s Hotel Kohinoor Continental, which is very conveniently located close to the airport. Participants from cities other than Mumbai (like New Delhi and Chennai-earlier known as Madras) also took part in the workshop.
The participants were from end user companies in India such as Essar, Tata Power, Reliance, National Peroxide and others; from well known automation and component suppliers such as Siemens, P+F, Endress & Hauser, Chemtrols, Forbes Marshall, Pyroban and others ; leading engineering consultants such as Shaw Rolta , SNC Lavalin and others; Indian construction & contracting companies such as HCC and others; as well as independent engineering consultants. All participants were unanimous in their feedback about the workshop in a single word… Excellent!
The workshop covered the most important areas in the field such as
* Area Classification/Material & Temperature Classification
* Selection of explosion protected equipment
* Intrinsic Safety
* Design of pressurized/purged panels & enclosures in hazardous areas
* Fieldbus in Hazardous Areas
* Inspection of hazardous area equipment
* Certification and Testing (including ATEX)
The best part was a face to face Question and Answer session, where the participants asked their most pressing problems and got solutions from the panel of experts present. This lively discussion went on for quite some time. A lot of the participants wanted this to be held over two days, because as one participant expressed “this is a lot of information and knowledge to absorb in a day!” All participants received training material in the form of books, manual, CDs and white papers.
Abhisam Software informed us that they can hold similar events on demand in other parts of the world as well. If you are interested, you can contact them here.
