Karsten Moholt - one of the first companies in Norway to have its personnel certified in accordance to new IECEx scheme

Karsten Moholt was the first repair and overhaul workshop in Scandinavia to be awarded IECEx certification for repairs and overhaul servicing of Ex equipment in accordance with the following international standards: IEC 60079-19 (Ex repair & overhaul), IEC 60079- 17 (Ex inspection), IEC 60079- 14 (Ex installation).

Karsten Moholt is now one of the first companies in Norway to achieve certificates for its employees in accordance with a new IECEx scheme applying to personnel who work with Ex equipment.

In 2013, IECEx (International Electrotechnical Commission System for Certification to Standards relating to Equipment for Use in Explosive Atmospheres) introduced the IECEx Certification of Personnel Competencies Scheme. This is the world’s first international scheme for the certification of personnel associated with equipment, installations and servicing used by Ex industries and it includes 10 Units utilised to establish a person’s level of competence.

The scheme provides companies with independent proof that a person holding an IECEx Certificate of Personnel Competencies has the knowledge and skills necessary to implement the International Ex Standards. This certification is internationally recognised and can be used as a proof of competencies across borders.

Karsten Moholt was one of the first companies in Norway to have its personnel complete the different units of the certification scheme. 8 of 26 certified Ex specialists in Norway are from Karsten Moholt. Over the years, the company has developed unique expertise in the Ex field and is proud to have that competence assessed and confirmed by an independent party.
