A client specifies the following equipment items to be mounted on a common baseplate:
- Gearbox (if applicable)
- Driven equipment
- All auxiliaries (i.e. lube oil system, seal systems, etc.) including Unit Control Panel (UCP)
If the client specifies the electrical equipment to a Zone I standard, and if the UCP is skid mounted then they would have to be housed in “Exd” or “Exp” enclosures.
Is this a typical arrangement and does it create any design problem?
