Explosion-Protection Solutions for the Energy Industry

Power Production

Producing energy from biogas or hydrogen, for example, carries a high risk of explosion, and all equipment in the danger zones must be designed and certified accordingly. BARTEC’s product portfolio provides solutions and a wide range of explosion-proof components, devices, and systems for controlling, switching, and connecting, including lighting, housings and distributors, cable entries, feed-throughs, and cable glands through to complex controls and switchgears.

BARTEC‘s electrical trace heaters are used in both conventional and solar power plants to protect pipelines from freezing and to ensure an uninterrupted supply of energy for households and industry, even under adverse climate conditions.

Energy Distribution and Conversion

BARTEC develops switchgears and transformers for medium- and high-voltage applications (up to 40 kV) in Zones 1 and 21. These ensure reliable operations, even in demanding, potentially explosive environments.

BARTEC solutions combine industry know-how with the high level of expertise needed to ensure protection and flexibility for hazardous areas in Zone 1. The absence of rotating elements in BARTEC’s Zone 1 transformer solutions ensures failure-free, low-maintenance operation, as well as high availability, robustness, and reliability.

Energy Storage

Battery production is a key topic for the energy transition that will be part of our lives for decades to come. Battery manufacturing and charging processes can create explosive atmospheres that require the use of Ex-certified equipment. Here, too, we apply our in-depth expertise in explosion protection and enable our customers to safely conquer new business areas.
