OXALIS LIGHTING GETS THE GREEN LIGHT FROM BAE SYSTEMS

Oxalis Lighting, part of The Oxalis Group, have been named an approved supplier to BAE Systems Saudi Arabia.

The approval has been awarded to the company for the manufacture and supply of safe area and hazardous area lighting, power distribution and associated equipment.

BAE Systems has placed an initial order with Oxalis Lighting for fifteen Type 600 lighting units, certified by ATEX and IECEX for Zone 0, 20 areas. The units will be used by BAE Systems for essential fuel tank inspections and maintenance tasks on aircraft based in Abu Dhabi. The Oxalis Type 600 is an intrinsically safe, portable device which provides a high light output through eight high-powered LED’s. The units are designed to eliminate any chance of sparking by limiting the energy in the circuit to below ignition point without restricting light output. They are designed and tested for the most hazardous areas where there is a permanent presence of gas and dust, such as fuel tanks.

Rob Whorrod, CEO of The Oxalis Group, said: “We are delighted to have gained this recognition from BAE Systems Saudi Arabia. We believe our Type 600 unit is the only purely intrinsically-safe inspection lamp available on the market, providing our customers with unparalled safety and flexibility for lighting their most hazardous environments. We look forward to developing our supplier relationship with BAE Systems Saudi Arabia and other areas in the future.”
